The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared results of 25 out the 30 House of Assembly seats in Anambra State, with the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) sweeping to victory.

Declaring the votes at the INEC office in Awka, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr. Edwin Nwatarali, said that there would be re-election on April 18, 2015 in four state constituencies where the exercise was inconclusive.

The result of Anambra West state constituency was still being collated at the time the REC was briefing reporters.

Areas where there were inconclusive polls include Aguata 1 constituency (Uga ward), the whole of Ekwusigo constituency where a chieftain of one of the political parties led thugs to cart away election materials before the commencement of the exercise on Saturday, as well as Anaocha 1 constituency, where there would be a re-run election at five polling units at Adazi Ani as well as one polling unit at Adazi Nnukwu and Agulu Wards 1, 2, 3 and 4.

In Anaocha 11 constituency, there would be a repeat exercise at Nri Wards 1 and 2.

The 25 constituencies already declared for APGA include Aguata 2, Ayamelum, Anambra East, Awka North, Awka South 1, Awka South 2, Dunukofia, Idemili North, Idemili South, Ihiala 1, Ihiala 2, Njikoka 1 and Njikoka 2.

Others were Nnewi North, Nnewi South 1, Nnewi South 2, Ogbaru 1, Ogbaru 2, Onitsha North 1, Onitsha North 2, Onitsha South 1, Onitsha South 2, Orumba North, Orumba South and Oyi.
