The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released dates for the governorship elections in Edo and Ondo States. Both governors Adams Oshiomole, Edo and Olusegun Mimiko, Ondo will have the successors determined in the last quarter of this year.
The gubernatorial election in Edo state will hold on September 10th while that of Ondo will hold on November 26th this year.
Observers are expecting tough contests in both states in what is likely to be a big show of power and popularity between the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Both governors Oshiomole and Mimiko are in their second term and cannot contest in the elections though it is believed that they will try to influence the race for their preferred candidates.
