Professor Charles Soludo, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, has solidified his win in the Anambra governorship election, which began on Saturday, November 6, 2021.

Soludo won the supplementary election in Ihiala Local Government Area when the regular poll on the 6th failed to take place. He won in 19 of the state’s 21 local government areas.

The Peoples Democratic Party’s (Mr Valentine Ozigbo) and Young Progressives Party’s (Senator Ifeanyi Ubah) candidates each won a local government.

However, Senator Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was unable to win any local government seats in the election.

“That Charles Chukwuma Soludo of APGA, having satisfied the requirements of the law is hereby declared the winner and is returned elected,” said the Independent National Electoral Commission’s Chief Returning Officer for the poll, Professor Florence Obi, in announcing the outcome on Wednesday morning.

Soludo, 61, a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, received 112,229 votes, more than twice as many as his closest rival, PDP’s Ozigbo, to be declared the election winner.

Ozigbo received 53,807 votes, while the other two frontrunners – Uba and Ubah – received 43,285 and 21,261 votes, respectively.
