The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the  Anambra Governorship election inconclusive, stating that the total number of cancelled votes is more than the difference between highest scorer of votes and the runner up.

The INEC officer in Anambra, Professor James Epoke explained that the decision was reached owing to the fact that the number of cancelled votes is more than the difference between the number of votes polled by the winner and the runner-up.

Supplementary polls are to hold where elections were cancelled.

Professor Epoke had initially given the figure of 113,113 as the total number of votes cancelled.

In the results earlier announced by INEC at the end of collation, the APGA candidate Mr Willie Obiano had scored 174,710 votes while Mr Tony Nwoye of the PDP polled 94,356 votes and the All Progressives Congress candidate Chris Ngige had 92,356 votes.
