Nigeria Decides: Uduaghan lose senatorial seat

The immediate past governor of Delta State Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has again failed in his bid to clinch the Delta South Senatorial seat.

Uduaghan tasted defeat in the hands of the incumbent Senator James Manager of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following results made available by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The poll outcome which sealed Uduaghan’s fate was announced in the city of Oleh by the INEC Returning Officer in charge of the area, Prof. Oladipupo Adesina of the University of Benin.

Results sheet provided by the Returning Officer showed that the PDP candidate Manager polled 258,812 votes to beat APC’s Uduaghan who garnered 125,776 votes from the election.

Uduaghan had also in 2015 failed to secure a ticket as a seating governor of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest in the senatorial election for that year.

He had left the PDP for APC when it was obvious he would not get the party’s nod to represent it in the senatorial election that held last Saturday.
