Nkanu East LGA is where the guber candidate of the PDP, Mr Peter Mba, hails from. It is also where the slain LP senatorial candidate, Barr Oyibo Chukwu, hailed from.

Prior to the announcement of the results, the party agent of the Labour Party in the local government area, Dr Eugene Edeoga, had complained that the local government collation officer claimed that BIVAS machines malfunctioned, and they had to resort to manual accreditation and voting. The collation officer however claimed that he relied on what the polling officials told him.

As at the time of filing this report, the state collation officer asked the LGA collation officer to step aside for further interrogations.
