The All Progressives Congress (APC) has won all 13 chairmanship seats in the local government election conducted in Ebonyi state over the weekend.



It is important to note that the election was contested mainly by APC as other political partiers in the state boycotted the election.

Jossy Eze, chairman of the Ebonyi state Independent Electoral Commission (EBSIEC), announced the election results in Abakaliki on Sunday.

According to Eze, APC also won all the 171 councillorship seats.

He commended the electorate for ensuring that the polls were free and peaceful.

He said: “By the power vested in me by the law, I hereby declare the results of the chairmanship of each of the 13 local governments as follows:

“One, Abakaliki Local Government, Mr Ebere Nwogba of the APC, having satisfied the requirements of the law and scored the majority of valid votes cast at the election, is hereby returned as duly elected.

“Other elected APC Chairmen included Chinedu Uburu, Ebonyi LGA; Chidiebere Uzor, Onicha LGA; Chinonso Ajah, Ohaozara LGA; Ibiam Nnajiofor, Afikpo North and Ekuma-Nkama Chima, Afikpo South.

“This commission has received, considered, validated and adopted the results of each of the 171 councillorship of the wards. That is to say that APC has won in all the wards.”
