The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced the postponement of the governorship election in Ihiala Local Government Area, Anambra State, following alleged irregularities discovered in most communities in the council area.

The announcement was made during collation on Sunday by the officer in charge, Ahmadu Umar.

According to Umar, there were 148,407 registered voters in the LGA, yet there was no election in the council area on Saturday due to the activities of some politicians who tried to rig the election.
