The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has won the local elections in all the 31 local government areas in Akwa Ibom State.

The election was conducted on Saturday.

According to a statement issued on Sunday by the Akwa Ibom State Independent Electoral Commission, AKISIEC, the party also won all the 329 councillorship seats in the state.

The statement was signed by the chairman of the election commission, Aniedi Ikoiwak.

“This statement confirms the announcement/declarations made by the authorised Returning Officers in various Wards and Local Government Areas,” the statement said.

The commission said 12 political parties contested the elections. It didn’t, however, give a breakdown of the votes scored by the parties and their candidates.

“Details of scores submitted by our Field Officers will be made available by the Field Operations/Logistics Department of the Commission,” the statement said.

The commission asked the winners to collect their certificates of return at its headquarters in Uyo on Monday.

“The  APC party wishes to inform the security agencies, government of Akwa Ibom State, the federal government of Nigeria, and the general public that we reject in entirety any concocted result that AKISIEC may wish to announce to the general public as the final result of the purported local government election,” the APC said in a statement issued on Saturday, after the election.
