The suspension of the result collation was announced on Sunday, by the INEC Returning Officer for the election, Professor Florence Obi.

It should be recalled that the INEC Collation Officer for Ihiala, Ahmadu Umar, had earlier said that there was no electric conduct in the LGA.
Out of the 21 LGAs in Anambra state, 20 LGAs were collated with Soludo (APGA) 103,946 votes, followed by Ozigbo (PDP) who got 51,322 votes, while Uba (APC) had 42,942.
Citing relevant sections of electoral law in the Nigerian constitution, the returning officer stated that the final collation of results by INEC, cannot be done until the polling units in Ihiala LGA are covered.
