People of Anambra State and indeed the world are eagerly awaiting the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC) to announce the results of today’s governorship election in the state.

The election, which was preceded by the massive unrest and attacks on INEC’s facilities in Nigeria’s Southeast region, was however peaceful but with some voters apathy among the 2.5 million registered voters in the 21 local government areas in the state.

The three leading candidates for the election are Charles Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), the ruling party in the state; Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The high voter apathy made party agents go from house to house as well as made phone calls to family members and friends to come out and vote.

Observers believe that the apathy was due to fear of likely violence as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has earlier declared a sit-at-home and boycott of the election.
