Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Godwin Elumelu on Sunday emerged candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to contest the Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency election in 2023.

At the primary election conducted in Asaba, Elumelu polled 80 delegates votes to defeat his closest rival, Mrs. Pat Ajudua who scored 35 votes. The third contestant, Kanyinebi Banye Muoboso polled 17 votes.

144 delegates from the four local government areas of the constituency were accredited, out of which 132 voted in the election conducted by Funkekeme Solomon as returning officer.

Elsewhere, the member representing Ika Federal Constituency, Victor Nwokolo also won his return ticket to fly the flag of the PDP.

But a third term member representing Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency, Ossai N. Ossai lost his bid to clinch the ticket of the PDP for the national legislative election.

Ossai scored 24 votes while Nnamdi Ezechi polled 44 delegates votes to win the ticket.

Meanwhile, in the state House of Assembly primaries conducted earlier at various constituencies, most of the incumbent members on the platform of PDP lost their bid to return to the House through the party.

In Oshimili South, Mrs. Bridget Anyafulu defeated the incumbent, Shedrach Rapu and other contestants.

In Aniocha South, Isaac Anwuzia also defeated the incumbent, Austin Chikezie and Nollywood veteran, Rita Daniels.
