Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has declared All Progressives Congress, APC, candidates winner of all the 40 seats in Kano State Assembly.
Also, All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, has emerged winner of 26 local government areas out of 30 in Anambra State in the state assembly elections held on Saturday, as INEC rescheduled elections in four local government areas in the state for April 18.
Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Mr. Edwin Nwatarali at a press conference in Awka said the affected areas include Aniocha constituencies 1 and 2, Aguata constituency 1 and Ekwusigo constituency.
“From the 30 constituency seats in the Anambra State Assembly, 26 have been declared and they were all won by APGA,” he said.
He said the commission had to move the Ekwusigo elections from April 25, which was its initial schedule to April 18 following a recommendation from the INEC headquarters.
According to him, the Ekwusigo constituency election was cancelled after thugs made away with over 75 percent of the total electoral materials meant for the Saturday election.
He said for Uga Ward 1 in Aguata, there was an anomaly, as the number of voters exceeded the number of registered voters with Permanent Voters Card.
For Aniocha Constituencies 1 and 2, Nwatarali said there was a deliberate attempt not to use card readers in the area despite certifications by technical personnel from INEC confirming the workability of the machines.
“So, we are rejecting the result from these constituencies. Our card reader was working and yet over 80 per cent of accreditation was done manually,” he said, adding that the commission had enough technical personnel to address issues of such nature.
He said for areas where the card readers had issues, the technical team of the commission succeeded in fixing the anomalies before the voting exercise was concluded.
