2017 Anambra Governorship Elections – APGA’s Willie Obiano defeats PDP and APC to win all 21 LGA’s of Anambra State in the controversial Saturday 18, 2017 governorship election . . .

APGA’s Willie Obiano has defeated PDP and APC to win all 21 local governments in Anambra state at the 2017 Anambra Governorship Elections concluded yesterday, Saturday, November 18, 2017.

The ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA)  took an early lead in the Anambra gubernatorial election held yesterday.

Early results show incumbent Governor Willie Obiano and his APGA clinching victory in most of the polling units which results have been announced since voting closed Saturday evening. With the All Progressives Congress (APC) chasing by some margin and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following closely behind.

The election had proceeded without catastrophic hitches (in the light of IPOB’s threats). Election hitches  had marred previous elections, earning the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies the praise of most of the candidates and their parties.

It will be recalled that as voting was going on in Anambra State on Saturday Nov 18, a drama played out. One of Governor Willie Obiano’s staunch supporters, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu (the Ikemba Ojukwu’s wife), had expressed joy with the victory recorded by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate at the polling units in her ward, Umudim Central School, in Nnewi North LGA.

A breakdown of results collated in the unit showed that APGA recorded 261 votes, APC 98, and PDP 80. Addressing journalists in the area, the widow of the late Biafran leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, said, “In my area, APGA is winning. I believe we will go on to win the election.”

A son of the late Biafran warlord, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu Jr., who has been engaged in a running battle with Bianca, recently threw his weight behind the APC candidate, Tony Nwoye. It appears that Bianca Ojukwu was right — APGA won!

The incumbent governor raced to an early lead in yesterday’s poll and retained the momentum, leading most watchers to give him the victory.
