Senator David Mark, Senate President.Going by the results so far declared at the National Assembly primaries it does appear that the Senate and the House may have more new faces than the returnees.

Although the Senate President and his Deputy were returned unopposed in their constituencies, there seems to be some remarkable surprises in the overall results.

In Abia State, Governor Theodore Orji won in Abia Central Senatorial District while Senator Uche Chukwmerije lost in Abia North Sentorial District to Mr Mao Ohabunwa

In Delta South, primary held in Warri, incumbent, Senator James Manager recorded massive victory, Loveth Odisi, triumphed in Ethiope Federal Constituency, while results from Delta Central show Igoyota Amori emerging winner

In Delta North, where one of the front runners and former PDP Chairman in Delta State, Chief Peter Nwaoboshi is running, the exercise was postponed and he denied rumors making the rounds that he was dropped by the party.
