Labour Party Causes Upset In Enugu, Abia, Sweeps 4 House of Reps Seats

The Labour Party caused an upset by winning four House of Representatives seats in two states.

The party has won four House of Representatives seats in Abia and Enugu states.

In Enugu state, Romanus Eze, returning officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), announced the result for Nsukka/Igbo-Eze on Sunday at the commission’s office in Nsukka.

Eze said Obetta polled a total of 50,881 votes to defeat Vita Abba of the PDP, who polled 19,347 votes.
