According to Sahara Reporters Umahi’s younger brother Chief Austin Umahi had emerged the winner of the Ebonyi south senatorial district primary election in the APC two weeks ago.
Umahi had contested alongside Bola Tinubu, Ogbonnaya Onu, Rotimi Amaechi and Ahmed Lawan for the presidential ticket of the APC.
However, shortly after the governor lost in the contest, the ruling party cancelled the senatorial election for the Ebonyi south and rescheduled it for Thursday, June 9, night.
The re-run of the election was held at the Afikpo North local government council, with Umahi securing the party’s ticket.
