The ward is the ancestral home of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Valentine Ozigbo.

Voting, however, began at about 9:40 a.m at Polling Units 5, 11, 12, 13, 15 located at the social centre in Amaesi ward, Aguata LGA.

A resident, Agnes Okoli who spoke to reporters, explained that she got to the polling point as early as 7:30 a.m and had to wait till officials arrived.

Okoli said she was impressed by the peaceful conduct of all involved stakeholders and expressed hope that it ends that way.

She said she was anxious to vote because it was her civic duty and that it was an opportunity for Amaesi to give Anambra their son as governor because one of the major candidates was from the Community

The Polling Official, who preferred anonymity, confirmed to voters that both the sensitive and non-sensitive materials including original result sheets were present.
