Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu’s party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has cleared all votes cast at the two polling units at Amachalla Primary School Mpu, in Aninri Local Government Area of Enugu State.
The Deputy Senate President is also the Senatorial candidate for Enugu West Senatorial district.
Electorates in Ekweremadu’s ward delivered 100 per cent of the votes cast for the PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the House of Representatives, Toby Okechukwu, with the All Progressives Congress, (APC) scoring zero.
Speaking to newsmen after the counting of votes, a PDP stakeholder from the community, Bright Ekweremadu said it was expected because it is the Deputy President of the Senate’s ward and “so we don’t expect any other party to come in.
“For this community, we are overwhelmed, we are happy, it’s a sign that our Senator is representing us well and we are happy with him and the only way to pay him back is to cast our votes for him. And we have done that not only for Senate but the Presidency and House of Reps.”
Out of the 499 valid votes cast, PDP scored 468 votes for Presidency, 490 for Senate and 492 for House of Reps. Other parties scored zero.
Most Nigerians would want to know who is winning the election, however, the Independent National Electoral Commission is yet to release official results.
