Ugwuanyi, Nnamani Win PDP Senatorial Tickets In Enugu


May 24, (THEWILL) – A former Governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani and the incumbent, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, have won the senatorial primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

Nnamani defeated a former Chief of Staff, Ifeoma Nwobodo, at the primary election held at Agbani by 243 votes, while Ugwuanyi defeated Eze Godwin by 299 votes to pick the ticket for the Enugu North Senatorial Zone.

The governor picked the ticket at the primaries held on Tuesday at the Nsukka Stadium in Nsukka local government area of the state.

Announcing the results, the Returning Officer, Yandev Ammabai, said Ugwuanyi polled 299 votes to defeat his closest rival, Eze Godwin who scored 16 votes while Godsmack Ugwu and Okanye Celestine recorded zero votes.
The primary election, which witnessed a large turnout of supporters of all the aspirants, was conducted on Tuesday after it was shifted from Monday due to a sit-at-home order in the South-East.

The governor is seeking to replace Chukwuka Utazi, the lawmaker representing Enugu North Senatorial District, which is made up of six local government areas, namely Nsukka, Udenu, Igbo-Eze North, Igbo-Eze South, Igbo Etiti and Uzo-Uwani.
