Nnamani Quits PDP, Considering Defection To APC

Listen to article

Less than 24 hours after he suffered a shocking humbling defeat from a less popular senatorial candidate of Labour Party in Enugu East, a former governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, has announced his decision to resign his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Meanwhile, although he is yet to officially admit it, close sources have revealed that plans have been perfected by the serving senator of the 9th National Assembly to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Eastern Updates recalls that last month, the PDP expelled Nnamani and wrote to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw him from the contest.

Nnamani, in a statement, on Monday said he has consulted with his associates and constituents, and have decided to quit the PDP on account of irreconcilable differences with the national leadership of the party.

He said he has moved on and hoped that his modest contributions to the development of his constituency will be the building blocks on which his successors can 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, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and promised to continue to partner him.

Nnamani expressed optimism that a Tinubu administration will promote good governance, rule of law and human rights for the interest of all Nigerians.
