Factnewsonline can confidently project the victory of Dr Okezie Victor Ikpeazu of PDP in Abia Gubernatorial election after today's supplementary poll in 8 of 9 designated LGAs. We estimate that he will increase the winning margin he had going into today's poll ordered by INEC.
This follows in depth analysis of reports obtained from all the polling units where elections held today in Abia. The supplementary election witnessed below 35% voters turn out with the PDP candidate running neck to neck with the APGA candidate, Dr Alex Otti, who needed to overcome a first round victory margin of more than eighty three thousand votes from the April 11th contest. Our unofficial estimates show the PDP candidate winning today's poll by 58% to increase his winning margin overall.

Accreditation and polling results obtained from our monitors spread accross the state show that Dr Okezie's also met the constitutional requirements for valid declaration as dully elected governor.  Though elections could not hold at Umunneochi LGA today, the total number of registered voters involved in today's poll at the LGA is slightly above ten thousand and therefore far less than Dr Ikpeazu's victory margin of more than ninety thousand votes. It is therefore expected that Dr Okezie will be declared Governor-elect even without a supplementary poll at Umunneochi.

The PDP candidate ran strongly at Osisioma, Ugwunagbo, Ohafia and parts of Aba North local government area. The APGA candidate maintained good leads at Aba South, Ikwuano and Umuahia south. He also made strong showing at Umuahia north. But his greatest set back came from the poor voters turn out at most of the locations involved in the supplementary polls. To overcome the PDP lead prior to today's poll, APGA needed at least 85% turn out of the about 130,000 PVC carrying voters at stake with more than 90% of the votes going their way.

Details of official poll results are expected later tonight from INEC but field estimates from most of the polling units are available at Factnewsonline.
