The Minority Leader, House of Representatives, Mr Ndudi Elumelu, has secured a return ticket as candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for a third term to represent the Federal Constituency.

Elumelu on Sunday polled a total of 80 votes out of the total votes cast by 132 delegates during the House of Representatives primary elections held in AsabaDelta.

His closest rival, Princess Pat Ajudua, polled 35 votes while  Mr Kanyinebi Mobushi got 17 votes.

The returning officer, Chief Funkekeme Solomon, declared Elumelu the winner of the contest for polling the highest number of votes in what he described as free, fair and transparent election.

According to Solomon, at the close of voting, 132 delegates were accredited, no void votes  and all the votes were counted.

“At the end, Mr Kanyinebi Mobushi, scored 17 votes; Mrs Pat Ajudua, scored 35 votes while Mr Ndudi Elumelu, scored 80 votes.

” Elumelu, having scored the highest votes, is hereby declared winner and returned as the candidate of the PDP for the Federal Constituency in the 2023 general election,” Solomon said.

Speaking after his declaration as the winner, Elumelu assured his constituents of more robust representation and dividends of democracy.

He said though  he emerged top in the primaries, there was no loser as it was a family affair and not a contest.

Elumelu thanked the governor, the PDP and the people of the constituency for giving him the platform to serve.

He  expressed confidence that PDP would win the general elections without hitch in the state and at the centre.
