Emerging report indicates that President Muhammadu’s visit to the South-East to solicit for votes for the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the just concluded Anambra State Governorship election, did not yield any fruitful result.
Sources who spoke with Post-Nigeria, said that APC’s failure to win the Governorship election in Anambra, is the greatest embarrassment Buhari has ever received.

The report shows that incumbent Governor of Anambra State and candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Willie Obiano, has taken a comfortable lead in the Anambra Governorship elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has already announced the results from 11 Local Governments in the election, with  Obiano winning in all. 

The INEC Returning Officers from each of the 11 Local Governments, took turns to announce the results, on Sunday.
Obiano won all the 11 LGAs with a total number of 122,688 votes. The All Progressives Congress, APC candidate, Tony Nwoye, is far behind in the second position with 55,961. The PDP candidate Oseloka Obaze, is currently third position, with 40,767 votes, while Osita Chidoka of the UPP, comes a distant fourth position, with about 2, 746 votes.
Though the election was held in the 532 polling centres in the 21 Local Governments of the State, there have been recorded incidents of over voting and snatching of ballot boxes, which led to the cancellation of elections in a few areas.
There were 2.16 million voters with Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs, for the election, which had a record of 37 contestants.

The collation centre is currently on a break, and will return shortly to announce the results from the remaining 10 Local Governments.
