Ahead of today’s official flag-off of the 2023 campaign, a poster of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator Chimaroke Nnamani and the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu has emerged.
The poster which was sighted by The Eastern Updates was tagged ‘Ebeano 4 Tinubu’ and was sighted in parts of Enugu State on Monday and currently making the rounds on social media.
While Tinubu appeared on the poster as APC presidential candidate, the lawmaker and former Enugu State Governor are seeking re-election to represent the Enugu East Senatorial District at the red chamber.
Meanwhile, reacting to questions online, the lawmaker in a post on his handles, said he has great respect for the APC candidate.

He wrote, “HE Tinubu is my friend, brother and colleague. I have great respect for him, his political antecedents and his strides in governance.
“And I am very proud and well pleased with him. Anybody belly aching should go …himself”.
DAILY POST reports that the ruling party had listed Chimaroke as a member of its Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, for the forthcoming 2023 election despite being a PDP member.
The lawmaker representing the Enugu East Senatorial District at the red chamber, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani had condemned attacks on the All Progressive Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
In a series of tweets on his verified Twitter handle, the former Enugu State governor described Tinubu as ‘the hardest working Politico of this generation’.
The lawmaker, however, said he would cast his vote for his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
He took up the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, Ministry of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, and the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, saying they are’“all first class with A-game always’.
The former governor condemned the attack on the alleged ill-health of the former Lagos governor, stating that those mocking Asiwaju may also have their shares later.
