Anambra: Prof. Soludo Takes Early Lead
The gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Charles Soludo, has extended his winning streak in the ongoing governorship election in Anambra State.
Mr Soludo, who had earlier amassed more votes in each of the earlier announced six local government areas, has also led his opponents in two additional local government areas – Agwuata and Orumba North.
Mr Soludo won against Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress and Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party in Aguata Local Government Area, the three top contenders’ home council.
Mr Soludo, so far, has the highest votes in each of the eight local governments announced by the INEC at the local government headquarters: Aguata, Orumba North, Onitsha South, Awka South, Anaocha, Anambra East, Orumba South and Njikoka.
The collation officer of Aguata LGA, Alim Ajake, said elections did not hold in some polling units across four wards within the local government.
The collation of the state’s election result is continuing on Sunday
