While Mpigi is the current Senator representing the Rivers South-East senatorial district in the National Assembly, Onyesoh was Rivers State Commissioner for Education, during the administration of former governor Peter Odili.

The trio emerged unopposed as all others who picked the PDP senatorial forms from the three senatorial districts were disqualified by the party’s Senatorial Screening Committee.
