Labour Party celebrates historic win as Hon. Ginger Onwusibe becomes first House of Representatives member-elect for Isialangwa North and South Federal Constituency in Abia State.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced Onwusibe’s victory after a fiercely contested election, which saw him defeat his closest rival, Professor Anthony Agbazuere of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). Onwusibe secured a total of 20,411 valid votes, while his opponent garnered 13,508 votes, in a clear demonstration of the people’s confidence in his ability to represent them effectively.
The election results were especially significant for the Labour Party, which had never won a national assembly seat before. The party’s leadership and supporters have expressed their joy and satisfaction at this historic feat, which they see as a validation of their commitment to service and the welfare of the people.
Hon. Ginger Onwusibe’s victory was not only a triumph for the Labour Party but also a significant win for the people of Isialangwa North and South Federal Constituency. The election was keenly contested, with several candidates vying for the position. However, the people spoke with one voice, choosing Onwusibe as their representative.
The election results show that the people of Abia State are becoming more politically aware and are ready to vote for candidates based on their track record, rather than their party affiliation. This development bodes well for the future of democracy in Nigeria, as it indicates that the people are taking ownership of the electoral process and are willing to hold their leaders accountable for their actions.
