Soludo on verge of winning Anambra gov election

The candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Prof Charles Soludo has extended his early lead in the Anambra governorship election held on Saturday.

From the 19 local governments’ results so far declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission on Sunday, the former Central Bank of Nigeria’s governor won in 17.

This is as election results for two local governments – Ihiala and Orumba North – are yet to be announced.

INEC officials at the collation centre in Awka declared that no election was held in Ihiala LGA.

The result for Orumba North LGA is currently being contested and has not been announced.

While Soludo leads in 17 LGAs, the Peoples Democratic Party and Young Progressives Party have won in one LGA each.

Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress, one of the frontrunners, is yet to win any local government.

Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party won in Ogbaru LGA while Ifeanyi Ubah of Young Progressives Party has the highest number of votes in Nnewi North LGA.

Soludo leads in Dunukofia, Awka South, Oyi, Ayamelum, Anaocha, Anambra East, Idemili South, Onitsha South, Njikoka, and Orumba South.

Others are Onitsha North, Aguata, Idemili North, Ekwusigo, Nnewi South, Awka North, Anambra West.
