Mr. Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is next with got 51,322 votes while Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC) trails with 42,942 votes.

The margin between Soludo and Ozigbo is 52,624 votes, and according to INEC, a winner could not be declared because the margin between the two leading candidates is far less than that of the registered voters who have not had the opportunity to vote in Ihiala.
