INEC may declare Anambra election inconclusive

Anambra decides 2021: Candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, might not be declared winner of the election despite already securing a larger number of votes.

The results already declared by INEC reveal that the APGA candidate won in 17 of the 21 local government areas of the state. One local government was won by the PDP candidate (Valentine Ozigbo) while the candidate of the YPP, Ifeanyi Ubah, also won in one local government.

Soludo currently leads his closest challenger, Mr Ozigbo, with over 45,000 votes.

He might still not be declared winner of the polls as the collation officers for two local government areas (Ihiala and Orumba North) said at the INEC collation center that elections did not hold in their local governments.

The election may thus be declared inconclusive to allow for rerun elections in the two affected local governments and other polling units where elections did not hold.

INEC is, however, still reviewing the situation and has not taken a position.
