Umahi’s younger brother wins APC’s senatorial ticket in Ebonyi
Governor David Umahi’s younger brother, Austin Umahi, has won the All Progressives Congress (APC) primaries for Ebonyi south senatorial zone of the state.
Mr Umahi, in the primaries held at the headquarters of Afikpo North Local Government Area on Saturday, polled 279 out of the 284 votes of accredited voters.
The former national vice chairman, South-East of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), before the governor defected to the APC, defeated Ann Agom-Eze, who polled five votes.
Chairman of the APC committee for the primary election, Muhammad Usman, commended the delegates for their orderly conduct, noting that such an atmosphere produced a credible exercise.
Mr Umahi, in his remarks, thanked God for the victory and the delegates for making the right choice, adding that the party would record a landslide victory in the 2023 general elections.
