Governor Umahi Wins Ebonyi Senatorial Ticket After Losing APC Presidential Primaries

Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has emerged as the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) rescheduled senatorial primary election for Ebonyi South.

The governor’s younger brother, Chief Austin Umahi, had emerged as the winner of the senatorial primary election held two weeks ago.

Umahi contested the presidential primary of the APC but lost to the national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu at the party’s convention in Abuja.

Shortly after he lost, the APC canceled the senatorial primary election for Ebonyi South and rescheduled it for Thursday night.

The rescheduled Ebonyi South APC Senatorial primary election was held at Afikpo North Local Government Council, with Governor Umahi clinching the party’s ticket.
