INEC yet to announce winner of Abia State’s governorship election

CLAIM: Twitter users claim Alex Otti, Abia state governorship candidate of the Labour Party, has been declared the winner. 

FINDING: Voting data available on the result viewing portal (IReV) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) shows results from 1,844 polling units in the state, out of 4,062, have been uploaded as of 9:30pm yesterday. 

Also, the purported declaration of the candidate as the election winner has not been published by any credible media platform. The CODE election observer in the state, Ugochukwu Favour, told the NFC yesterday at 11pm that collation is still ongoing at the ward level. Thus, a winner is yet to be declared.

VERDICT: Incorrect
