The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has officially announced the by-election of the Imo North Senatorial election without a candidate on the election that took place on Saturday, declaring the All Progressive Congress, APC, as the winner of Imo North Senatorial bye-election held at the weekend.
However, the INEC Commission did not attach any candidate’s name to the result, when the election result was announced.
The 14 political parties that contested for the vacant senatorial seat, the Returning Officer, Hakeem Adikum, said: “I hereby return the All Progressive Congress as the winner of the bye-election held in Imo North on Saturday, December 5, 2020.”
Meanwhile, The Court of Appeal, Owerri, sacked Senator Ifeanyi Araraume as the candidate of the party, faulting an earlier judgment of the Federal High Court, Owerri, which nullified the candidacy of Mr. Frank Ibezim.
The official results announced by INEC for the election show that the APC polled a total of 36, 811 votes, while the PDP got 31,903 votes.
