Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) candidate, Governor Adams Oshiomhole, has taken a strong lead in the Edo State governorship ballot, even triumphing over the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in some of its strongholds.

A report by the Transport & Business Express special correspondent covering the election said that “Oshiomhole is not only leading in the declared results but also trounced the PDP in some of its strongholds, an example being Fuga, the town of President Goodluck Jonathan’s Chief of Staff, Chief Mike Oghiadome, and Nigeria’s former number two man, Admiral Mike Akhigbe (retd.), both PDP chieftains.”

Voting is, however, still on-going in some places.

Oshiomhole faces strong challenge from PDP’ Gen. Charles Airhiavbere (retd.), who has vowed to demystify him but the governor has threatened fire and brimstone if he is rigged out.
