Senator Nnamani quits PDP after losing re-election bid to LP candidate
Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, representing Enugu-East Senatorial District, has withdrawn his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Nnamani, a former Gov. of Enugu State who announced his exit from the PDP in a statement in Abuja on Monday, expressed appreciation to his constituents for the unalloyed support over the years.
According to Nnamani, he has consulted with his associates and constituents and has decided to quit the PDP because of irreconcilable differences with the party’s national leadership.
He said that he had moved on and hoped that his modest contributions to the development of his constituency would be the building blocks on which his successors could build on.
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 Senator Bola Tinubu, and promised to continue to partner with him.
He expressed optimism that a Tinubu-led administration would promote good governance, rule of law and human rights for the interest of all Nigerians.
According to Nnamani, he decided to align with Tinubu, because the PDP has breached its Constitution by subverting the principle of power rotation.
NewsWireNGR had earlier reported that the former governor of Enugu State was defeated at the weekend by Labour Party (LP) candidate, Sir Kelvin Chukwu, who will be representing Enugu East in the upper legislative chamber.
