The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has won the 17 chairmanship seats and 259 out of the 260 councillorship seats in Enugu State.
Announcing the results of the council poll which took place last Saturday, the chairman of the Enugu State Independent Electoral Commission (ESIEC), Dr Boniface Eneh disclosed that chairmanship contest only took place in two local government areas (Awgu and Isiuzo) while the ‘Yes Vote’ system was adopted in the other 15 council areas where the opposition did not field candidates against the PDP.
