The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has swept the Local Government chairmanship elections held on Saturday, August 25, 2018, as the party also secured 640 councilors out of the 645 wards.

This was just as the Redemption Peoples Party, Accord Party, KOWA, the Young Progressives Party and Rebuild Nigeria Party won one councilor each respectively.

However, elections were inconclusive in Oguta, Isu, Isiala Mbano, Aboh Mbaise and Owerri North councils.

Elthebert Ibebuchi, the chairman of the Imo State Independent Electoral Commission, who made this known while announcing the results of the council polls on Sunday, August 26, 2018, said that 13 political parties fielded candidates for the council election.

According to him, the commission provided a level playing ground for all the political parties and their candidates.

The ISIEC Chairman also disclosed that the Commission would establish Electoral Tribunal for adjudication of disputes arising from the conduct of the council polls.

He commended the governor of the State, Rochas Okorocha for his support to the commission in carrying out the exercise.
