The Minority Whip of Federal House of Representatives, Samson Osagie, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has lost his bid to represent Edo South at the Senate.

Osagie lost to candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mathew Urhoghide, after polling 117,759 votes against Urhoghide's 139,784 votes.
