The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has declared the Anambra governorship election inconclusive.
This is owing to the inability of the commission to deploy staff and materials to Ihiala Local Government Area, as a result of security threat.
Returning officer in the election, Prof. Florence Obi said the election would now hold on Tuesday, November 9, to complement the 20 local government areas election result, already announced.
Obi said: “we have collated results for 20 local government areas, and Ihiala is still outstanding as the commission was unable to deploy to the area.
Based on constitutional provision, supplementary election will be held in Ihiala. So, we have to conclude the election in Ihiala to be able to conclude the process.
I plead with you to support INEC, so we can bring this election to a conclusion, to the glory of God. The election for Ihiala will hold on November 9.”
