Nnaji represented the district in the 7th and 8th Senate but lost the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, nomination to Nnamani who was sworn in last Tuesday at the inauguration of the 9th Senate.

Nnaji had in October last year approached a Federal High court in Enugu claiming that Nnamani was not validly elected in the party primary, but lost at the lower court before he approached the appellate court for redress. But the Appeal Court in a unanimous decision in the appeal came hard on Nnaji for accusing the lower court of not giving him fair hearing.

The three issues of appeal raised by Nnaji were resolved infavour of Nnamani and his the PDP.
