The All Progressives Grand alliance, APGA, has been announced winner of Saturday’s governorship election in Orumba North.

There have been controversy about the result of the local government, after the collation officer, Dr Godwin Otu had alleged that his Electoral Officer connived with thugs to make him sign the result sheet for the election, under duress.

The returning officer, Prof Florence Obi had, however, constituted a panel, headed by Dr Otjong, chairman of Academic Staff Union of University in the University of Calabar to look into it.

During a resumed session, Dr Othong said, “After looking at the matter, we saw no evidence of use of BVAS, we also discovered police crisis at the local government collation centre, and heavy mutilation of the result sheet.

“Committee resolved to call for the BVAS machine used in the area, but that was not achievable as the BVAS were said not to be readily available.”

The committee after a long time resolved and read out the result as follows:

PDP – 1847

APC – 2672

APGA – 4787

This is the 18th local government, out of the 21, to be won by APGA.
