A United States-based research and political risk consultancy firm, Hallmark International Consulting Company, has tipped Andy Uba to win the November 6, 2021 governorship election in Anambra State.
HICC said, “Senator Andy Uba, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress may win in a hotly contested election with a margin of error of between three to four per cent probability ratings in Anambra State governorship election”.
The foundation’s vice president for Africa and Middle East, Hayes Rodney, in a statement said the interest of the foundation in the Anambra governorship election was nonpartisan.
HICC said the research and opinion poll was commissioned by a US-based ‘Power to the People Foundation’ – a non-governmental organisation with an interest in the sustainability of democracy in Africa and around the world.
Although HICC said it only polled six major candidates including Godwin Maduka of Accord, Charles Soludo of All Progressive Grand Alliance, Valentine Ozigbo of PDP, Obiora Okonkwo of Zenith Labour Party, and Senator Andy Uba of APC, the poll, it said, “further narrowed the governorship race to a contest between Soludo of APGA and Senator Andy Uba of APC.”
