The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has defeated President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Anambra State at the presidential election, winning in all the 21 local government areas of the state.

Announcing the result earlier today, the presidential election returning officer in charge of Anambra State, Prof. Francis Ogbonnaya Ofunta, the Vice Chancellor of Michael Okpara University Umudike, Abia State, said the PDP candidate won with 524,738 in all the 21 local government areas.

The incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC Polled 33,298 votes.

Total number of registered voters in the state is 2,389,332, accredited voters were 675,273 while valid votes cast were 605,734 and the total number of rejected votes were 19,301, while the total votes cast are- 625,035.

However, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige has called for the cancellation of votes from Idemili South because of the flawed process used in the conduct of the election, stating that the process was contrary to the electoral laws.

He, therefore, refused to sign the collated results on behalf of the APC.
