NIGERIA POLITICS: Willie Obiano Wins Anambra State Governorship Election

NIGERIA POLITICS: Willie Obiano Wins Anambra State Governorship Election


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Governor Willie Obiano of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) as the winner of the November 18, 2017, governorship election in Anambra State.

According to INEC, Obiano defeated two major opponents, Tony Nwoye of the All Progressives Congress and Obaze Oseloka of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to clinch the victory.

As earlier projected by SaharaReporters, Mr. Obiano of the All Progressive Grand Alliance received a total vote of 234,071 to finish ahead of Nwoye of All Progressive Congress who got 98,752.

The Governor won with a big margin in key areas of the state including Idemili, Onitsha, Orumba, Ihiala, and Awka.

Mr. Obiano also won in Ogbaru local government, the local government where PDP’s Oseloka with a total vote of 6,615 against 3,415 votes got by Mr. Oseloka.

Mr. Willie Obiano who has been receiving a mixture of praise and criticism from his first term as Governor will continue to drive the state until November 2021 to complete his two terms in office as Governor of Anambra state.

Meanwhile, the gubernatorial election experienced massive vote buying and a low turnout of voters. This made local and international observers conclude that the election was not credible because it was based on who had the most money to spend.

A breakdown of the votes in various local government areas is as follows:
