INEC has declared the governorship election in Imo State inconclusive.
The decision was taken due to the number of cancelled votes (144,715) in relation to the margin of win (79,529) by APC candidate, Rochas Okorocha, Premium Times reports.
A new date for a supplementary election in the cancelled wards will be announced by INEC soon.
Okorocha was initially thought to have won the election after he garnered 385,671 votes compared to the 306,142 votes scored by PDP candidate, Emeka Ihedioha.
According to reports, the same situation also occurred in the last governorship elections. On April 26, 2011, INEC similarly declared the poll inconclusive because elections did not hold in some wards.
