The announcement was made by Ikechukwu Emeta, the deputy governor of Abia and chief returning officer for the election, who declared Akpata as the winner in accordance with the party’s constitution.

“I hereby declare Mr. Olumide Osaigbovo Akpata as the winner and the gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party for the Edo State governorship election 2024,” stated Emeta.
