Oshiomole Wins Edo North Senatorial Ticket in APC Primaries
Adams Oshiomole, a former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), won the party's Edo North senatorial ticket for the 2023 election on Saturday.

The former Edo State governor received 309 votes, while his opponent, Sen. Francis Alimikhena, received five votes despite withdrawing from the race.

Festus Ebia, the party's primary returning officer, said 317 delegates were accredited for the election, with Oshiomole receiving 309 votes, Alimikhena receiving five votes, and three votes being nullified.

"Oshiomole is hereby declared winner," he added, adding that he received a majority of 309 votes and met the election's requirements.

In response, Oshiomole praised the national organisation for holding a free and fair primary poll.

"If God grants me success in the general election, I will ensure that Edo North's voice is heard loud and clear, just as it was when I was governor of the state."

He pledged to work with fellow senators to ensure that the Senate functions in a way that reflects the people's will and desire.

Oshiomole asked Alimikhena to summon the guts to accept the election results as a blessing in disguise, just as his opponent did in 2015 and 2019.

Valentine Asuen, a former Edo State youth leader, was elected as the party's candidate in Edo South.

After garnering 215 votes, he defeated his opponent, former Edo State deputy governor Lucky Imasuen.
