APGA (Ifeanyi Ararume) is 3rd, having polled 37,107 votes.

 

Then, APC (Hope Uzodimma) is 4th, with 27,331 votes.

 

Accord Party (Ikedi Ohakim) polled 2,047 votes to be on the 5th position.

 

The declaration of the remaining results is expected to commence soon, being suspended because of disruption of the declaration, earlier on today.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has suspended the announcement of results for the March 9 elections in Imo State.

Imo INEC took the decision on Monday by 5:30 am due to an argument which broke out between  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) state party agent, Uche Onyegucha and Democratic Alternative (DA) party agent, Paschal Onwukaike over the announcement of the results from Ideato South local government area.

“All the electoral officers were taken to a particular place to write the results.

“Also, the party agents were driven away by the agents of the government and the results were written in favour of one candidate,” Onyegucha claimed, while Onwukaike challenged him on why the result should not be announced.

The fight grew, leading to the arrest of them both, and hence, the suspension of the results announcement.

At last, Ihedioha finally wins Imo guber race. (Click to read result details).
