Delta state governorship election results have continued to trail in but with delay. Results from 21 local government areas have so far been declared, remaining four local governments to be announced at 8: 00 am Thursday, 28, 2011 at the INEC headquarters,  Asaba. The results show that the PDP's candidate, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan is treading on a tight rope to victory while the DPP candidate is struggling on a keen contest even as political pundits reason that the contending candidates may end up having a run-off if they do not secure the mandatory 25 percent votes cast in at least 16 local governments.    

Total votes so far garnered by PDP are 428, 151 against DPP's 397, 113 votes cast.

Meanwhile, DPP's governorship candidate, Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru has decried the role of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Delta state, saying that the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Dr. Gabriel Ogbudu Ada is playing out a script of the PDP in determining the winner at the polls which he described as inconclusive in some parts of the state.  

Ogboru, who spoke through his younger brother, Turner Ogboru and that state DPP chairman, Chief Tony Ezeagwu urged INEC to urgently reject results from Warri North, Warri South, warri South West and Ethiope West local government areas of the state, claiming that election did not hold in the areas as it was fraught with massive irregularities.
