The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the Anambra governorship election inconclusive.
The returning officer of the election, Prof. Florence Banku Obi, made the announcement at the State collation centre, Awka.
Prof. Obi, who is the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calabar, explained that the election could not be adjudged to have been concluded when the commission could not conduct the process in Ihiala Local Government Area because of logistic challenges.
She, therefore, ordered that “by the powers conferred on me as the Returning Officer of this election I declare this election inconclusive.
“I order the conduct of a supplementary election in the 306 polling units in Ihiala on Tuesday, November 9.
“I also declare that the collation of results for this election is suspended until the election is conducted in Ihiala.
“We will all return here on Tuesday to conclude the collation.”
Meanwhile, the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate, Prof. Charles Soludo, has won in 18 out of the 20 Local Government results already declared by INEC.
