A total of 42 positions to be filled at the end.

Still on, despite the heavy security and plea by President Buhari, some delegates threw light punches at each other at the gathering.
The 'dock and throw' started with Imo delegates before spreading to the Delta State delegates.

While the clash between delegates from Imo was brought under control by security operatives after a while, that between the Delta delegates was more intense with chairs being hurled and several people sustaining injuries.

It was gathered trouble began when a group loyal to Imo State Governor Rochas arrived at the stand reserved for Imo delegates and ordered others loyal to his deputy, Eze Madumere, to vacate the seats.
The order was resisted leading to fisticuffs with the private security of the governor allegedly getting involved with some people forcefully removed.

That of Delta was allegedly between supporters of O’Tega Emerhor and a former governorship candidate in the state, Great Ogboru.

According to delegates from the group, the faction loyal to O’Tega Emerhor had stepped out to eat but was stunned when they returned and found out that they had been unseated by another faction.
Their attempt to take their seats back ended in violence.

Fight was therefore caused by:
1. Loyalty and Hatred
2. Seat
