Contrary to expectations, All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the Anambra State governorship election, Senator Chris Ngige, is placing a distant third going by collated results. He has been dusted by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) flag bearer, Chief Willie Obiano, and Comrade Tony Nwoye of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ngige is, however, expected to leap to the second position after today’s rescheduled election in 65 units of Obosi Ward 7, Idemmili North LGA, which is regarding as part of his stronghold but where voting had to be postponed due to late arrival of materials.

Collated results from 20 of the 21 local government areas showed APGA leading with 171,975 votes, followed by PDP with 93,485 votes and APC with 85,165 votes.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is expected to declare a winner possibly tonight.
