An opponent collapsed as Hon. Victor Nwokolo was voted winner of the Peoples Democratic Party Primaries ticket, ENigeria Newspaper reports.

Victor Nwokolo, who has served three terms in the House of Representatives representing the Ika Federal Constituency, clinched the Peoples Democratic Party’s ticket during the party’s primaries on Sunday, May 22, 2023, but not without a casualty.

In a video obtained by ENigeria Newspaper, Victor Nwokolo’s opponent, identified as Dr. Philip Okwuada collapsed after hearing that he had won the PDP House of Representatives primaries for the Ika Federal Constituency again.

Victor Nwokolo was elected to the Federal House of Representatives as a PDP candidate in 2011 and is still one of the House’s most experienced members. Everyone agrees that three terms is a significant accomplishment in terms of experience and power.

However, he has faced harsh criticism, with most of his opponents declaring that the “national assembly is not his father’s property”. Most people believe that Barton should be replaced this time because his three terms in the House have resulted in little or no development in his constituency.

Many politicians, particularly from the Ika South, are angling and jostling in an attempt to defeat the incumbent, Rt Hon Victor Onyemachi Nwokolo, from the Ika North East, from seeking a fourth term, and observers think he may not have it easy this time.
