Nnamani loses senate seat to Labour Party
Former Governor of Enugu State, Dr Chimaroke Nnamani has lost his Enugu East Senatorial seat to Kelvin Chukwu of the Labour Party.
Nnamani contested the Senatorial election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The LP candidate polled 69,136 to beat Nnamani, who scored 48,701 votes.
Kelvin replaced his murdered brother, Oyibo Chukwu, who was killed few days to the Feb. 25 presidential and National Assembly elections.
Senator Nnamani has congratulated the winner, saying that the outcome of the election reflected the wishes of the majority of constituents.
“The result of the election is in tandem with the rave of the moment in the South East zone who have identified with Labour Party. A contrary result would have negated the trend.
“I wish the Enugu East Senator-elect a successful tenure in the upper legislative chamber,” he said.
