A former governor of Enugu State and Senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Dr Chimaroke Nnamani, has lost his bid to go back to the Senate.
Nnamadi, who ran on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, polled 48,701, to be defeated by the candidate of the Labour Party, Kelvin Chukwu, who secured 69,136 votes.
The Enugu East Senatorial District election had been shifted from February 25 to March 18 following the assassination of the original candidate of the LP,Oyibo Chukwu,about 72 hours to the poll.
