The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has won a total of 13 state Assembly seats with the conclusion of the supplementary election on Saturday in some councils where the results were declared inconclusive during the March 9 polls.
Some of the councils where the supplementary state Assembly polls held included Ngor-Okpala, Isu, Isiala Mbano, Ikeduru, Oguta and Njaba.
However, the Action Alliance won six seat while the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) won 8 seats.
Interestingly, in Oguta state constituency election, Hon. Henry Ezediaro, the incumbent member of the House of Assembly, and the Director-General of the Ugwumba Uche Nwosu Movement, lost his re-election bid to the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Frank Ugboma.
Observers recall that Hon. Ezediaro was the fellow who engineered the adoption of Uche Nwosu as the sole governorship candidate of then APC- dominated state Assembly.
Similarly, Mr. Uche Ogbuagu had to put up a fierce battle to defeat the combined forces of Senator Samuel Anyanwu and the APC who allegedly wanted to install the candidate of All Progressives Congress, Mr. Ifeanyi Opara, proprietor of Titanic Hotels, Owerri.
Similarly, in Ngor-Okpala, the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Tochi Okereke, defeated the incumbent Hon Obinna of the Action Alliance as well as the former transition committee chairman and candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Hon. Ugochukwu Okere to emerge the winner.
