Abia, Nigeria News 5th October, 2018: The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on foreign affairs and member representing Bende Federal Constituency at the Hon House of Representative, Nnenna Ukeje-Elendu has lost the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives primary election.

Business man, Chief Chima Anyanso, yesterday defeated her to become the PDP’s flag bearer for the 2019 election.

According to her, “The election is transparent, peaceful and fair. I am so happy for the way it played out. Democracy is supposed to emanate from the people and that has just happened.
