Even though the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is yet to declare the winner of yesterday’s governorship election in Anambra State, there were indications last night that the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate, and incumbent governor of the state, Chief Willie Obiano, might retain his job.

Feelers from across the state showed that the candidate performed fairly well in wider areas than any other candidate in the election.

However, early results from polling units in Allor, Nnewi, Aguluzigbo, Aguleri among other areas in Anambra South showed a straight fight between Obiano and the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Tony Nwoye.

INEC is expected to start announcing official results any moment from now. Stay with us as we bring you updates on that.
