The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed Tuesday, November 9 for a supplementary election in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Returning Officer for Saturday’s governorship election in the state, Professor Florence Obi, announced this in the early hours of Monday.

The decision to hold supplementary elections in Ihiala LGA follows the failure of INEC to conduct elections there on Saturday.

According to Professor Obi, this failure was due to security challenges which made it impossible for the electoral body to deploy materials and personnel in the LGA.

“We have collated results for 20 out of the 21 local government areas,” she said. “The outstanding results are for Ihiala Local Government Area where for various reasons, the commission could not deploy materials yesterday (Saturday).

“Consequently, based on Constitutional considerations and provisions of the Electoral Act as well as revised regulations and guidelines for the conduct of election issued by the commission, a supplementary election is indicated for Ihiala Local Government Area.”

Professor Obi explained that the collation of results could not be concluded and a winner declared without elections in the LGA.

Ihiala is the only one of Anambra’s 21 LGAs where elections could not hold.

Results were announced for all other LGAs with the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Charles Soludo, winning in 18 of the 20 LGAs for which results were declared.
