The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Anambra governorship election, Valentine Ozigbo, has expressed optimism of winning the election.
This is despite trailing in third place with Charles Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance leading the poll.
The election was on Sunday declared inconclusive, with the Independent National Electoral Commission slating Tuesday for the conclusion which will happen in Ihiala Local Government Area.
Speaking about the election, Ozigbo said: “I want to assure the good people of Anambra that the election is not over, it is still winnable for us, the PDP.
“The over 248,000 votes in Ihiala tomorrow and other places is enough to change the situation, I call on our people to remain hopeful and make it possible by coming out to vote.
“There was no low turnout of voters on Saturday, what we had was technology induced challenges which denied many people the opportunity to vote.
“While we commend INEC for their effort to improve the electoral process with technology, we want to acknowledge the imperfection that marred the exercise, it was a big experiment we did not deserve.”
