Candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in the Anambra governship election, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, is reportedly leading the polls as results from different Local Government Areas are announced.
Anambra has 21 LGAs and Soludo is reportedly leading in one-third, clearing all the seven LGAs that have so far been announced.
The LGAs are Orumba South, Njijoka, Awka South, Onitsha South, Enugu Anambra East, Anaocha, and Anambra East.
Meanwhile, a former director of voter education, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, has said the extension of the ongoing Anambra governorship election by INEC from Saturday to Sunday is not a new phenomenon in Nigeria.
He spoke on Sunday during a programme tagged; “The Morning Show,” on Arise Television.
Mr Osaze-Uzzi said it was okay for INEC to extend elections if there are technical issues that cannot be fixed by the commission on the scheduled day, adding that extension of elections is not a new phenomenon in Anambra.
He said: “There are instances when INEC had to postpone elections in the past, reschedule or even extend the time for collation and counting.
“This is not the first, there are precedents for it, starting from Anambra itself. I think about eight years ago, INEC was prevented from deploying materials from the wards upto the polling units, because some people alleged that materials were not complete and result sheets were missing, so we extended the election.”
He added that some extensions in the past were based on court orders or violence.
