The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives and member representing Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency, Hon. Ndudi Elumelu, has lost his bid to return to the House after being defeated by the candidate of the Labour Party, Ngozi Okolie.

Elumelu, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the election and was seeking re-election to the Green Chamber for the third time, but Ngozi Okolie, who is seemingly unknown political underdog, defeated Elumelu in the results collated from the four councils that made up the constituency in Saturday’s National Assembly election.

Labour Party’s candidate polled 53, 879 votes to defeat the PDP candidate who scored 33, 466 votes in the election.

The Returning Officer for the election, Prof. Kenneth Abaraibe, announced the result at the INEC collation centre in Asaba, Oshimi South Local Government Area of the state.

Abaraibe declared Okolie as the winner of the election having polled the highest votes in the constituency.
