AS THE Anambra state governorship election result trickles in, a Facebook user Ikechukwu Emeka Onyia, on Sunday claimed the candidate of the All Progressives Congress Andy Ubah, is leading in seven Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state.
Onyia in a post made on his Facebook page asserted that Ubah is currently coasting home to victory and as well, leading in seven LGAs.
Onyia who said he is the Deputy Director, Media and Publicity for the Senator Andy Uba Governorship Campaign Organisation (SAUGCO) wrote “Breaking News: APC Heading to victory, leads in seven LGAs …Alerts public on APGA’s attempt to smuggle doctored results … Says Andy Uba’s victory will Set New Development Agenda.The senator Andy Uba Governorship Campaign Organisation, SAUGCO has stated that Senator Andy Uba is heading to victory with verified results so far across Local Government Areas”.
APC candidate leads in seven LGAs.
Findings by The FactCheckHub show that the claim is false, as the official result revealed that the APC candidate is yet to win a single LGA.
As at 3pm, November 7, Media reports show that Chukwuma Charles Soludo, candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has cleared 10 of the 11 LGAs results that have been announced so far by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The collation of results is ongoing.
The claim that the APC candidate leads in seven LGAs is FALSE.
