Former governor of Enugu State and senator representing Enugu East in the Senate, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, has formally withdrawn his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Nnamani, a foetal surgeon, expressed appreciation to his constituents for their unalloyed support to him over the years. He said he had ‘consulted with his associates and constituents alike and have decided to quit the PDP on account of irreconcilable differences with the national leadership of the party’.
He has moved on and hopes that his modest contributions to the development of his constituency will be the building blocks on which his successors can build on, according to a release.
Senator Nnamani thanked Nigerians, especially the Ebeano political family and urged them to remain steadfast in the years ahead.
The former governor reaffirmed his acquaintance with the president-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, and promised to continue to partner with him.
Senator Nnamani expressed optimism that a Tinubu administration will promote good governance, rule of law and human rights for the interest of all Nigerians.
Nnamani is the chairman, Senate Committee on Cooperation and Integration in Africa/NEPAD.
