The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) today declared the three serving senators from Abia State; Senators Enyinnaya Abaribe (Abia South), Uche Chukwumerije (Abia North) and Senator Nkechi Nwaogu (Abia Central) senators-elect for the Senate. The trio are of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The major upset in the election in the state was the defeat of former Governor Orji Uzor Kalu of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) by his erstwhile ally, Senator Chukwumerije.

Also the younger brother of the ex-governor, Nnanna Uzor Kalu, who is also a seating member of the House of Representatives was defeated by the former Deputy Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Uzor Azubuike for the Aba North/South Federal Constituency.

Declaring the result of Abia South Senatorial District, the INEC returning officer, Prof. Jude A. Mbanasor announced that Sen. Abaribe polled 90,773 to win the contest.

His closest rival Nyerere Chinyere Anyim of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) got 17,711 votes to come second.
So far in Abia North, Orji Kalu lost all the five local councils; Umunneochi, Isiukwuato, Bende, Ohafia and Arochukwu to Sen. Chukwumerije. Reports say that he won only in three wards. Final result is yet to be announced at press time.

In Abia Central, Senator Nwaogu polled 124,000 votes to defeat her rivals.

Meanwhile, Hons Eziuche Ubani (Obingwa, Osisioma/Ugwunagbo fed. Const), Uzoma Abonta (Ukwa East/West fed. Const.), and Nnenna Ukeje (Bende fed. Const) have all been declared winners. They are all of the PDP.
