The primary as conducted by the Charles Ugwu’s leadership of the PDP, saw Emmanuel Okewulonu, polled 609 votes to defeat Patrick Ndubueze, who got 27 votes.

However, the primary election which produced Okewulonu as the winner, led to Ndubueze disagreeing with the whole process and had approached the court.
