OBJ, daughter, Daniel lose wards, Orji Kalu winning big

A major upset appeared to be in the making as results of the National Assembly election, conducted yesterday, trickled in from the states. The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) is in early lead going from results from Ogun, Lagos, Edo and Osun.

In the results released so far, former President Olusegun Obasanjo who doubles as the Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), lost in his Ward 11, Unit 14 located within the premises of the African Church Grammar School to ACN. ACN had 194 votes, PDP 85 votes and Peoples Party of Nigeria (PPN), being promoted by Governor Gbenga Daniel, 12 votes.

At a different unit in the ward, Obasanjo’s daughter, Iyabo, also failed to deliver her Polling Unit 15. The incumbent senator who is of the PDP had 64 votes as against 118 scored by the ACN. PPN scored 5 votes. But in Okun-Owa in Odogbolu Local Government Area of the state, the Labour Party garnered the largest votes in the five voting centres in the town.

At Daniel’s Ward 12 at Isote, Sagamu, ACN was said to have recorded 121 votes, as against PPN’s 118 votes. PDP had 90 votes and Labour Party 27 votes. Results from Fugar, Etsako Central Local Government Area of Edo State indicated that the Chief of Staff (COS) to President Goodluck Jonathan, Chief Mike Oghiadomhe and Edo State PDP Chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, lost their polling units, wards and the entire local government to the ACN.

But the PDP candidate, Senator Odion Ugbesia, is leading in most of the polling stations and wards in Edo Central Senatorial District whose results have been collated as at press time.

The first shocker of the Saturday National Assembly election in Borno State was recorded at the two polling centres within the Maiduguri Government House premises as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s senatorial candidate for the Borno South senatorial district, Ahmed Zanna Kalifa polled a total of 412 while Gov Ali Sheriff (ANPP) scored 252 votes in the two centres. For the Maiduguri Metropolitan Federal Constituency, PDP had 368 votes. The ANPP polled a total of 233, CPC scored 169.

There are also indications that the PDP and CPC are leading in most of the polling centres in Maiduguri and Jere Local Governments, which have the largest number of eligible voters in the state.


In Owerri senatorial zone, APGA candidate Senator Chris Anyanwu is likely to win as party clears Owerri Municipal, Owerri North LGAs and Mbaise axis.

Ekweremadu leads in Aninri, Agwu, Udi LGAs. Result awaited in two other LGAs.
Ayogu Eze leads in Igboeze North, Nsukk, Igboetiti LGAs; results awaited in 2 LGAs.


PDP is in early lead in the two senatorial districts where elections took place. David Mark is leading Onoja in Bene South while there are indications that Gemade is leading incumbent Senator Joseph Akaagerger who told journalists that PDP was rigging the election.
He complained of thuggery and threatened to go to court if INEC did not intervene.


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, senatorial candidate for Kaduna Central, Yusuf Abubakar Hamisu Mairago, and his CPC counterpart, General Saleh won their respective polling units.
While CPC candidate beat PDP 141 to 77 at his Ungwan Kaji, Gumel road polling unit, the PDP candidate on the other hand beat his counterpart at his Hali road polling unit by 279 to 149.
But the story was different at the Vice President’s polling unit where voting was still on as at 8.pm yesterday.

According to investigations, 1148 eligible voters were registered, while only 469 potential voters were accredited, at the close of accreditation.


Kalu leads in Bende, Ohafia Local Government Areas. Other results expected at press time.
