Delta LG polls: After much chest beating, APC loses BIG to PDP


After much chest beating and boasting of beating the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the January 6, 2018 local government elections in Delta, the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday suffered a huge defeat as the PDP seized all the local government areas in the state.

Though the election was marred with various degrees of irregularities as reported by community members and witnesses who monitored the election across the state, the state chairman of the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission (DSIEC), Mike Ogbodu, on Sunday announced PDP as winner of 22 local government areas.

Ogbodu, a retired commissioner of police, also announced to journalists at the DSIEC office in Asaba that following violence that greeted Ughelli North and Ethiope East, the commission will organise a re-run election for the two council areas on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 while the result for Ika south, the stronghold of Cairo Ojougboh, the greatest rival of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, will be announced at a later as, according to him, the returning officer fell sick.

In the results released by the commission, the PDP defeated the APC with a big win in all the council areas of the state leaving the APC struggling to follow from a great distance.

For instance, in Warri south west, one of the most inaccessible areas of the state, the PDP polled 107,973 votes while the APC only scored 1751 votes. Also, in Uvwie local government area, the PDP polled 103, 309 votes while APC scored paltry 593 votes.

In Warri south local government area, another riverine local government, the PDP polled 92,564 votes leaving APC struggling with only 2806 votes. In Burutu local government area, another big local government almost surrounded with large ocean body, the PDP defeated the APC with 83, 897 votes giving the APC only 2791 votes.

With the results released by the state electoral body, the PDP won greater votes in the riverine communities more than the upland areas of the state. These are evidenced with the votes from Burutu, Warri south and Warri south west.

In Oshimili south, a local government housing the state capital, Asaba, which has more people because of its population following the business nature and the civil servants in it, the PDP won with 46,183 votes giving APC only 1898 votes. In Oshimili north, another upland area, the PDP won with 47,306 votes while APC only scored 7239 votes.

In an address presented by chairman of the state electoral board, Mike Ogbodu, he said 59 councilors were returned unopposed. He said the PDP won 444 councilorship seats leaving the APC with only one councilorship seat in the entire Delta state.

The APC councilorship candidate, according to him, won in Aniocha north local government area, ward 2, the home of former speaker of the state house of assembly, Victor Ochei, a big stalwart of the APC.

As it is now, the PDP has taken over all the local government areas of the state with many being of the belief that despite the postponment of the Ughelli north and Ethiope east election, the PDP may win the two council areas following the alleged rigging plot heavily orchestrated by the party thugs spread in conspicuous parts of the state.

Although the APC gave the PDP a big fight compared with the 2015 governorship election, the state is almost sliding into becoming a one party state where anyone who wins the PDP selected primaries may as well go home and wait for the swearing into any of the state elective offices be it legislative or executive.

While the APC bigwigs and party faithful are crying foul that the election did not hold and that it should be canceled, the PDP men are going town celebrating their victory undermining whoever is weeping or calling for the cancellation of the election.
