There are basic ingredients that must be added before a pot of quality soup is made and that is the same situation with an election primary.

INEC witnessing the election is fundamental, the election being guided and secured by security is fundamental, an election having party officials from the national is also fundamental and there must be evidence that candidates appeared in an accredited place is vital too. So you can check to know which of the above mentioned were obeyed by those whom you mentioned in your story. 

The Ebonyi State Commissioner for Information, Uchenna Orji says that the primary produced the Speaker of the state assembly, Francis Nwifuru who won with by scoring 743 votes above Julius Ali Ucha, Edward Mkwegu, Elias Mbam Nwalem and Rosemary Ofoke who scaored 22, 8, 10, and 63 votes respectively.
