Former governor of Enugu State and senator representing Enugu East senatorial zone, Chimaroke Nnamani, weekend, called on adherents of the Ebeano movement to ensure the victory of the PDP in the state ahead of the 2023 general elecrions.
Dr Nnamani, a medical doctor, stated this on his Facebook page.
Nnamani wrote, “Nnamani, a medical doctor, wrote on his Facebook page that, “We cannot lay foundation for another political party and expect to umbrella on it two weeks later. NOT in Enugu! Not in ebeano ‘country’. Let’s cut the …,,, and muuuvvvveee.
“Obidient ebeano! Take a break we see you guys after Governorship and State Assemblies. This is a message to all ebeano. We go! No bandwagon in Enugu! IT is game ON!#ebeanoFAM.
“Politics is SERIOUS business. Not romantic Liason. We meet in February. May the majority win Enugu. We cannot afford Bandwagon and loose Governorship and State Assemblies.
“Obidients Bye Bye for now. You win we congratulate you, after all we are kinsman.We win we meet again and roll.”
Nnamani’s message was sequel to the emerging fame of the Labour Party in the state consolidated by the emergence of Barr Chijioke Edeoga as the party’s guber candidate. Edeoga, former member of the House of Representatives, emerged Thursday after a delegate congress held in Enugu.
Chimaroke is the father of Ebeano reputed to have produced the likes of incumbent governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, former governor Sullivan Chime, senator Ike Ekweremadu, and Reps member Dr Pat Asadu.
Under Sullivan’s administration,
Chimaroke was in political limbo, and once said he never stepped into the Enugu Government throughtout Sullivan’s regime.
It was Gov Ugwuanyi that revived Dr Nnamani’s political career, enabling his second shot in the Senate. He is also the senatorial candidate of the PDP for his zone in the 2023 elections.
