Ogbaru, which is the LGA of Stella Oduah, senator representing Anambra north, is PDP’s first win among the LGAs announced so far.

Oduah, who was elected to the senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), defected to the APC in August.

Meanwhile, Soludo, who lost Nnewi North LGA to Ifeanyi Ubah, candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), has won 15 out of 17 LGAs.
