INEC declares Anambra Guber Poll Inclusive, to Hold Supplementary Election Tomorrow



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the Anambra State governorship election inconclusive.

 The returning officer of the election, Vice-chancellor of the University of Calabar, Professor Florence Obi declared the election inconclusive because no election held in Ihiala Local Governnment Area of the state.
The announcement was made after the collation of results from 20 LGAs.

Obi said  that election did not hold in Ihiala LGA because INEC could not deploy electoral materials to the area owing to security Concerns.

Citing relevant sections of the Electoral Act 2010 and other regulations of the electoral umpire, Prof. Obi said the final outcome of the Anambra governorship election could not be determined except with the result of Ihiala LGA, hence a supplementary election will hold in the local government area tomorrow, Tuesday, November 9, 2021 in order to conclude the whole exercise.
