ACN in Early Lead As Oshiomhole Defeats Arihiavbere in PDP Stronghold
The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) candidate in today’s governorship election in Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole has taken an early lead, defeating PDP’s candidate, General Charles Airhiavbere in results so far collated and declared in Edo south senatorial district where the PDP candidate Airhiavbere hails from.
Edo south has the largest number of voters and as the home base of Airhiavbere, PDP had counted so much on votes from this part of the state to defeat Oshiomhole who hails from Edo north.
