by ‘Jola Sotubo

The results are in from the supplementary governorship election which held in Anambra yesterday, and the winner is Willie Obiano of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

The supplementary election became necessary after the first election held in the state was found to be inconclusive.

The election was boycotted by candidates of other major parties who favoured a total cancellation of the polls rather than the conduct of the supplementary one that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) insisted on.

According to Sahara Reporters:

Professor Chukwuemeka Onukogu, the Resident Commissioner of INEC in Anambra state declared in Awka that Mr. Obiano won the election by polling 180,178 votes in 19 local government areas in the state.

The total votes won by the APGA candidates constitutes 25% of the votes in at least 19 LGAs out of the 21 LGAs in the state.

The election results were declared after the completion of yesterday’s supplementary elections which was boycotted by major parties that earlier participated in the first ballot.
