BREAKING! INEC SAYS ONLY 42,000 PVCS COLLECTED IN IHIALA; SOLUDO’S VICTORY ASSURED
Latest information from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) reveals that out of the 148,000 registered voters in Ihiala LGA, only 42,000 PVCs were collected.
As such, theoretically, the number of voters expected to participate in today’s supplementary election in Ihiala LGA cannot be more than the collected PVCs.
The implication is that the victory of Prof Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is still on course.
Presently, APGA has polled 103,946 whereas, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) polled 51322 to come a distant second.
However, the margin between Soludo and his closest rival, Chief Val Ozigbo of the PDP is 52, 624. Therefore, even if PDP miraculously secures the votes of all eligible 42,000 voters, it will still be less than APGA’s current margin of victory.
Consequently, informed analysts believe that today’s supplementary election in Ihiala LGA is to fulfill legal requirements in order to have APGA’s Soludo duly returned as the winner of the 2021 Anambra Governorship Election.
