Update I: Delta Governorship election still too close to call.
Update: There are three local governments left in play in Delta election according to our exit poll. This is why we cannot call the election for a particular candidate. They have very large number of voters. Ughelli South, Ughelli North, and Isoko South. The first two are urhobo LGA's. Ogboru is expected to do well in these areas. But can he score enough to erase Uduaghan's lead?
There are 25 Local Government Areas in Delta State. At the last count, Emmanuel Uduaghan (PDP) has won in 13, while Great Ogboru has won in 8 according to our estimates, based on reports we have received from our team on the field.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan 06, (THEWILL) – Results so far from the Delta State Governorship election according to our exit poll show a clear race between former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan (PDP) and Chief Great Ogboru (DPP). Reports received from the field say the elections were relatively free and fair. In some areas, THEWILL gathered that a few persons were unable to vote because their names were not on the voters register. There were also reports of violence and ballot box snatching in the Warri axis.
