Results from Edo State governorship election have started running into a two-horse race, with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Godwin Obaseki, leading and closely followed by All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Of the 13 Local Governments announced by the Independent national Electoral Commission (INEC), the PDP candidate had polled over 30, 000 votes more than his major contender.

A major setback for the APC in the move to reclaim the seat of power was that its former chairman, Odigie Oyegun, and some other chieftains lost to the PDP candidate at their polling units and results from other locations were not in their favour.

The results of the 13 local governments released by INEC on Sunday were:
