•Governor Wike

Rivers State Governor, Barrister Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, appeared unstoppable as the collation of results of the March 9 governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) drew towards the end.

Wike, who won 13 of the 15 local government areas collated upon the resumption of the exercise on Tuesday, further extended his when collation resumed today, winning all four LGAs collated before the exercise went on a three-hour break to allow the results for Khana and Ahoada West LGAs to be ready.

Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) dealt the hopes of his main rival, Engr. Biokpomabo Awara of the African Action Congress (AAC), a potentially fatal blow by winning the heavily-populated Obioakpor LGA with 281,164 votes as against a paltry 7,495 votes won by Awara.

Below are the results of the 19 LGAs so far for the two leading contenders in the governorship race in which the federal-ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is banned by the courts due to internal squabbles:
