It is almost certain that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has failed in its sprirted attempt to unseat Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole, of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).

With results from eight of the 18 local government areas in the state so far declared, the former labor leader appears poised for a landslide victory over his main challenger, Gen. Charles Airhiavevbere (retd) of the PDP.

Oshiomhole beat Airhiavevbere in his Oredo Ward 1, Unit 20, polling 360 votes as against 38 votes for the PDP.

He similarly trounced PDP strongman, Chief Tony Anenih, in his polling centre. Oshiomhole.

As earlier reported by Transport & Business Express, Oshiomhole  aslowon in 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.
