Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance [APGA], in the ongoing Anambra governorship election has suffered his first Local Government defeat.
Soludo has cleared virtually all the Local Government Areas announced so far but Senator Ifeanyi Ubah clinched Nnewi North Local Government Area, where he hails from.
Ubah, lawmaker representing Anambra South Senatorial District, is candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in the election.
While 6485 polled votes, Soludo trailed with 3,369 votes.
However, the APGA governorship candidate has won 15 local government Area in the state out of 20 Local Government Area, as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
