EdoDecides: Obaseki and his wife cast their vote

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Godwin Obaseki, and his wife, Betsy, have completed their accreditation and voted in the ongoing election in the state.

Obaseki and his wife, who were registered at Ward 4, Unit 20, Emokpae Primary School, in Oredo Local Government Area, arrived at about 9:35am for accreditation and voting.

Our correspondent gathered that there was a large turnout at Obaseki’s ward, Oredo Ward 4, which has 10 polling units.

Obaseki and Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, are considered the leading candidates in the governorship race although a total of 19 candidates are vying for the position.

The election, which is being held under tight security, comes after a bitter campaign during which both candidates and their parties engaged in a war of words, accusing each other of working to manipulate the process.
