APC’s Nwifuru Leads Ebonyi Guber Election With Nine LGAs
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Francis Nwifuru, is currently leading in the Ebonyi governorship election with nine out of 12 Local Government Areas (LGAs) announced so far by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate, Professor Ben Odo, won two LGAs, while Dr Ifeanyi Odii of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won one LGA.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner for the state, Ugochi Onyeka, stated this on Sunday at the collation centre situated in Abakaliki, the state capital.
Onyeka, therefore, postponed the announcement of the final result of the state governorship election till 10 am on Monday, March 20.
He said the postponement follows the inability of the returning and collation officers for Ishielu Local Government Area, to reconcile figures compiled with the ICT desk at the collation centre today.
Onyeka, however, informed all present including security chiefs, party representatives, and the media that the final collation and announcement will commence at the said time.
