INEC suspends declaration of Anambra Governorship election results

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has suspended the declaration of the Anambra governorship election results.

This is because there was no election conducted in Ihiala Local Government Area of the State.

Returning Officer, Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Florence Obi said she would not announce the result of the election until a supplementary election is held in Ihiala Local Government.

The APGA governorship candidate polled 103,946 votes to lead Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who posted a distant 51,322 votes to emerge second, while Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC) scored 42,942 votes to emerge third.
