Elumelu Exposed

Honourable Ndudi Elumelu, winner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary for the Aniocha/Oshimili constituency in Delta State has been exposed by fellow contestant and the outgoing member of the House of Representatives for the constituency, Mrs. Amaechi Mrakpor.

Honourable (Mrs.) Mrakpor who is also the wife of the Delta State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barrister Peter Mrakpor said that; “On the night of October 1, some delegates from my local government informed me that Elumelu was giving delegates $1,500. I didn’t quite believe it because, before then, the governor had announced that no aspirant should give any delegate more than N100,000 for their accommodation, transport and feeding.”

“That was the briefing we got and I got ready with N100,000 each. But by the night of October 1, I received a phone call that Elumelu was giving out $1,500 or N550,000 and I confirmed it.”

“After Elumelu voted, he came back and started campaigning to the delegates while voting was going on. After that he brought out a Ghana-must-go bag and started sharing jollof rice and chicken and nobody cautioned him.”
