APGA logo


The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) recorded a landslide victory in Anambra State during last Saturday’s Governorship and State House of Assembly elections by winning virtually all the 30 seats of the State Assembly.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), however postponed the polls in Ekwusigo, Anaocha 1 and 11, and Aguata 1 state constituencies due to violence that stalled the conduct of the elections in the areas.

The resident electoral commissioner (REC), Mr. Edwin Nwatarali, who announced the results of the polls yesterday, said the rescheduled elections in the affected constituencies will hold on April 18, 2015.

He assured all stakeholders in the areas that the commission would provide a level playing field for all political parties and their candidates during the rescheduled elections.

Unlike some other states, only the state Assembly elections took place in Anambra State because the tenure of the incumbent Governor Willie Obiano is still running. His tenure is due to end on March 17, 2018. He was only sworn in on March 17, 2014.

He stated that the ruling party in the state, APGA, won all the 25 seats that the results had been declared, stating that the result of the polls was being awaited from the Anambra-West state constituency as at the time of the news briefing.

Some of the state constituencies which the results had been declared and were returned in favour of APGA included Njikoka 1 and II, Orumba-North, Orumba-South, Nnewi South, Ihiala I and II, Oyi, Awka South 1 and 11, Ayamelum, Onitsha South 1 and 1I, Onitsha North I and II, Idemili South and Idemili North.

The postponment of the polls in Ekwusigo state constituency, LEADERSHIP learnt, was as a result of an alleged clash between two oil magnates in the state, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah and Sir Emeka Offor, whose supporters allegedly made away with ballot boxes and result sheets in the local government area.
