LIVE UPDATES: Voters head to polls to pick new governor in keenly contested #Anambraelection

After much waiting, the people of Anambra state will today, Saturday, November 18, 2017, head to the polls to elect a new governor.

The top candidates are incumbent governor Willie Obiano, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate who is seeking a second term in office.

Next is All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Tony Nwoye, who has the full support of President Muhammadu Buhari. The president, in his visit to Anambra days ago, assured voters of good times if Nwoye makes it in.
