PDP Wins In 31 A’Ibom Local Govt Councils


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has won the local elections in all the 31 local government areas in Akwa Ibom State.

The election was conducted on Saturday.

A statement on Sunday signed by Aniedi Ikoiwak, Chairman of Akwa Ibom State Independent Electoral Commission, AKISIEC, said the party also won all the 329 councillorship seats in the state.

“This statement confirms the announcement/declarations made by the authorised Returning Officers in various Wards and Local Government Areas,” the statement said.

The commission said 12 political parties contested the elections. It didn’t, however, give a breakdown of the votes scored by the parties and their candidates.

“Details of scores submitted by our Field Officers will be made available by the Field Operations/Logistics Department of the Commission,” the statement said.

The commission asked the winners to collect their certificates of return at its headquarters in Uyo on Monday.
