Former Governor of Edo and ex-national Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has clinched his party’s Edo North Senatorial ticket ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Mr Oshiomhole scored 309 votes to pick the APC ticket while his opponent and incumbent senator, Francis Alimikhena, polled five votes at the party primary election held in Auchi, Edo, on Saturday.
The returning officer for the APC primary, Festus Ebia, said 317 delegates were accredited out of the 320 expected delegates for the election, adding that three votes were voided.
“Oshiomhole having scored the majority votes of 309 and satisfied the requirement of the election is hereby declared winner,” he said.
In his acceptance speech, Mr Oshiomhole thanked the delegates and commended the national body for conducting a transparent primary election.
He said his commitment was to do his best for the good people of Edo North and to improve their lifestyles through quality representation.
“If God gives us victory in the main election, I will ensure that the voice of Edo North will be loud and clear the same way I did as governor of the state.
“My promise, if given the mandate at the senate, I will work with other senators to ensure that the senate functions in a manner that will reflect the will and aspiration of Nigerians,” he said.
