The Independent National Electoral Commission has just announced the Anambra State Gubernatorial election winner after collating all the polls in the state.
The Gubernatorial election which had 18 candidates contest from different parties, kickstarted at 8 am on Saturday, November 5 with accreditation, and voting started around noon, which ended at 4 pm.
The election was free and fair in almost all the Local Government Areas in the state, with no disturbance or interference, except for mechanical issues faced by the electoral body at Nnewi where protest broke out over alleged fake result sheet.
Collation started in earnest on Saturday, four Local Government results were collated and announced on Saturday which Charles Soludo; the candidate contesting from the auspices of the All Progressive Grand Alliance won all the four, closely trailed by Andy Uba contesting from the All Progressive Congress, before the collation process was suspended.
Collation of the remaining Local government areas started on Sunday, the results became a hard tussle as Charles Soludo won seventeen, Andy Uba, Ifeanyi Uba, and Valentine Ozigbo won one Local Government each but was later declared inconclusive after a local government area could not participate in the voting process due to security issues.
A supplementary election was held yesterday in Ihiala Local Government area, though was violent and bloody after members of the Eastern Security Network disrupted the electoral process.
However, the Anambra State Election Winner as declared by INEC is Charles Soludo from the All Progressive Grand Alliance Party.
