RULING All Progressives Congress, APC has won the senatorial bye-election held in Imo North (Okigwe- Zone), but without the name of a candidate returned as winner of the weekend poll.

He stated that APC won in five out of six local governments in the senatorial district namely Okigwe, Onuimo, Isiala Mbano, Ehime Mbano, and Ihitte Uboma LGAs, while the PDP won in one local government area, Obowo.
Official results announced by INEC showed that APC polled a total of 36, 811 votes, while the PDP scored 31,903 votes.
