Delta guber: Okowa maintains lead, wins 12 out of 13 LGAs

Paul Osuyi, Asaba

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and the PDP governorship candidate in Saturday election has extended his lead according to results from 13 local government areas announced so far by various LGA collation officers at the state collation centre in Asaba.

State collation officer Prof. Seth Accra Jaja is presiding over the collation exercise alongside the state Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Dr. Cyril Omorogbe, and representatives of statutory security agencies.

Okowa is in a clear lead in 12 of the 13 LGA results announced so far, with the candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC), Great Ogboru, coming a distant second. However, Ogboru won in his Ethiope East Local Government Area.

The incumbent polled his highest votes from the announced LGAs in his Ika North-East, with the leader of the PDP and former governor James Ibori also winning big in his Ethiope West for Okowa.

In their various announcement, the LGA collation officers informed that some unit results were cancelled as a result of fighting, ballot box stuffing, ballot box snatching, card reader failure and total number of votes exceeding total number accredited.

APC representative Mr. Turner Ogboru has rejected the results, calling for a total cancellation on allegation of over-voting.
