Senator Andy Uba casts his vote.
The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Andy Uba, has won his polling unit in the ongoing Anambra governorship election.
INEC officials, who announced the results on Saturday, said Uba had 80 votes in Ward 16, Polling Unit 17 in Uga, Aguata Local Government Area.
The flagbearer of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chukwuma Soludo, scored 10 votes while the candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), Ifeanyi Uba, polled five votes.
Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) got two votes.
Before now, INEC had extended the voting time for the election to 4:00 pm on Saturday following challenges with the accreditation of voters.
In a statement, the commission explained that those who are on the queue by 4:00 pm will be allowed to cast their ballot in the race to pick Governor Willie Obiano’s successor.
“The extension of time arose out of several field reports that voters have had problems with accreditation,” INEC said.
“The Commission is currently investigating the reason the accreditation devices, Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS), have worked perfectly in some Polling Units, but not in others.”
