Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi on Monday has lost his senatorial bid to the Labour Party (LP) candidate for the district, Okechukwu Ezea.
Ugwuanyi, who is rounding off his second term as governor, is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the Enugu North Senatorial District election held on Saturday 25 February.
According to results announced Sunday evening by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the Labour Party candidate, Barr. Okey Ezea, defeated Governor Ugwuanyi, who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to emerge as the Senator-Elect for Enugu North Senatorial Zone.
The results were announced for each local government area by INEC collation officers.
Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi is among the five aggrieved governors of the PDP, who refused to support their party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
