The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) vice presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has won his polling unity with 258 votes for PDP leaving APC with just one vote.
At Aguluzigbo, the APGA Senatorial candidate for Anambra Central, Senator Victor Umeh won his Polling Unit 018 at Aguluzigbo Town Hall with 197 votes against PDP 18 votes and APC 3 votes.
The major defeat in Anambra was the loss of the incumbent Senator representing Anambra South senatorial district, Dr. Andy Uba in his own polling unit to his younger brother, the PDP candidate, Chief Chris Uba.
Senator Uba who is of the APC, lost his polling unit at Salvation Army polling unit, Uga Ward 1 with 4 votes to his younger brother’s 115 votes.
Meanwhile, the younger Uba and those in his polling unit could not vote due to failure of the card reader and it was gathered at press time that election in the unit had been shifted to a new date.
Uba’s media aide, Patience Chisom Ukachukwu said: “The PDP candidate for Anambra South senatorial district has not been able to exercise his civic right.
“At about 12:00pm today, he went to his polling unit to carry out his franchise as a citizen but was told the card readers were not working; he left and returned at exactly 1:24pm, the same story was told to him again. When he asked to exercise his civic right manually, they declined.
“He is uncomfortable with the situation and insists that something must be done immediately to salvage the situation. He wants the world to know he was unable to vote and he smells sabotage somewhere. He still believes in the credible election promised by INEC and is hopeful the whole process will turn out well.”
