Labour Party candidate Afam Ogene has been declared the winner of the Ogbaru federal constituency supplementary election in Anambra by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Ogene secured 10,851 votes, defeating Chukwuma Onyema of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and three-term incumbent house of representatives member who polled 10,619 votes.

The election was initially declared inconclusive on February 25 due to infractions and violence.

The supplementary election took place on Sunday, and Arinze Awogu of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) came in third with 10,155 votes.

INEC’s Returning Officer, Kingsley Ubaorji, declared Ogene the winner, stating that he had satisfied the requirements of the law and scored the highest number of votes cast.

The election was keenly contested by the three major political parties in the state, and the outcome was widely anticipated.

Ogene’s victory is seen as a significant boost for the Labour Party, which has been struggling to gain a foothold in the state.

It is also a setback for the PDP, which has lost a stronghold to a relatively unknown party.

Ogene, in his victory speech, thanked the people of Ogbaru for their support and promised to represent their interests effectively in the house of representatives.

He also urged his opponents to accept the outcome of the election in good faith and work with him to develop the constituency.
