The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is leading in 13 local governments while the All Progressives Congress (APC) leads in three local government areas according to results so far declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The results show that PDP has scored 243,606 while APC polled 144,955.
This means the PDP is leading with 98,651 votes.
However, this is still under contention, as the member representing Oredo Federal Constuency in the House of Representatives, Ogbeide Ihama, who is the PDP agent, has raised an objection to the results.
He said there were cases of over voting and ballot box snatching in, but the results were not cancelled as done in other areas.
He called on INEC to do something about it just as it has done in other areas where similar incidents had occurred.
Below is a breakdown of the figures by local government areas:
Esan South East
APC 6, 719
Esan North East
APC 6, 556
Ovia North East
