Already, the agents of the main political parties that participated in the weekend governorship election are currently in the main hall awaiting the announcement of the final result.

The Saturday election has been a hot race between the candidates of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Mr. Willie Obiano, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Tony Nwoye, and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Oseloka Obaze.

Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in and around the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) along aroma road in Awka, the state capital.
