...As Ofor Chukwuegbo, Nnolim Nnaji win PDP reps tickets

Moves by a disqualified governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ejike Ugwu to stop the governorship primaries of the party failed as the Enugu High Court declined to grant his request.

Ugwu had prayed the court to stop the primaries pending the determination of the suit.

But the court presided over by Justice A. Onovo which though agreed that he may have a good case however refused to grant the ex-parte order and urged the plaintiff to put the parties involved on notice.

Meanwhile two incumbent House of Representative members for Enugu north/South and Nkanu East/West federal constituencies, Mr Chima Oji and Mr Chukwuemeka Ujam yesterday lost  in the primaries of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) conducted in the state.

While Oji lost in the primary of the party held at Enugu north local government council to a former House of Representative member, Prince Offor Chukwuegbo, Ujam lost to Nnolim Nnaji at the Agbani council local government.

Offor Chukwuegbo, who represented Enugu north and south from 2007 -2015 secured 265 votes to beat Oji who scored 15 votes. Nnaji scored  246 votes to beat Ujam who scored 55 votes.

The declaration of the results had sent delegates at Enugu north into wild jubilation as many of them had waited from Wednesday to cast their votes after accreditation but could not do so following the late arrival of ballot papers.
