Anambra Election: Soludo Wins Six LGA’s With Wide Margin

0

Charles Soludo, the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has taken an early lead in the Anambra governorship election.

The election which was held on Saturday was affected by technical glitches, the late arrival of electoral officials, and materials, among other issues.

As the results trickle in from various local government areas (LGAs), Soludo has taken a commanding lead in seven LGAs.

He has won Njikoka, Anambra East, Onitsha South, Anaocha, Awka South, and Orumba South.

The APGA candidate also defeated Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to win Aguata LGA. The three frontrunners in the Anambra governorship election are from Aguata.

There are a total of 18 candidates — all-male — vying to succeed Willie Obiano as governor of the state.

There are, however, seven females vying for the deputy governorship position.

Here is the breakdown of the results from the seven LGAs.
