Mr. Ajogwu, who is also the Chief Returning Officer for the poll, said that the results of three council areas had not been collated because they arrived late.

“So far, so good, the election had been credible, free and fair from ENSIEC assessment.

“I want to thank both the media, security agencies and Enugu State residents for making it a huge success,’’ he said.

There are 17 local governments and 261 political wards in the state.
