NAN reports that there was confusion in Anambra over the conduct of the primary election as two PDP factions held separate elections.

Senator Ugochukwu Uba and Valentine Ozigbo were elected as the respective standard bearers in the November 6 poll.

While Uba was elected candidate of the faction led by Chukwudi Imeaba, Ozigbo was elected at an exercise organized by a faction believed to be loyal to the opposing faction.
