The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the Anambra State Gubernatorial Election inconclusive.

The election was declared as inconclusive because voting didn’t happen in Ihiala Local Government Area on Saturday, November 6, 2021, due to security threats.

The commission has fixed Tuesday, November 9, 2021, for the supplementary election in the local government area.

The candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, is currently leading with a wide margin in the results announced so far.

Soludo is currently leading with a total vote of 103,946. Valentine Ozigbo, the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, who is currently in second place, has 51,322 votes.

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Andy Uba, has 42942 votes but he will not contest in the supplementary election on Tuesday.

Soludo, who was the CBN governor from May 2004 to May 2009, is close to becoming the next governor of Anambra State.

If Soludo finally wins the gubernatorial election, he will be the second former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria to emerge as governor of a state in Nigeria.

The first was Clement Isong, the former governor of Cross River State.

Isong was the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria from 1967 to 1975. He was Cross River governor from 1979 to 1983.

Isong is on the right side of the N1,000 note.
