A Gubernatorial election was held recently in Anambra state where Professor Charles Soludo of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) emerged winner, defeating closest rivals Valentine Ozigbo of the PDP and Andy Uba of the APC.

Despite the remarkable victory by the APGA candidate, the election in Anambra generally witnessed very low voters turnout as less than 15% of the total registered voters turned out for the election.

According to the voters register of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Anambra has about 2. 5 million registered voters but surprisingly, less than 300,000 people voted in the election.
