Enugu 2023: Gov Ugwuanyi Will Choose His Successor, That’s Our Tradition - Nnamani

Chimaroke Nnamani Speaks On Enugu Election

Speaking on Wednesday, Nnamani said it has been the norm in Enugu since 1999 for the incumbent governor of the state to determine his successor.

He added that the state has enjoyed political harmony on account of adherence to zoning or rotation of key political offices between the three senatorial districts since 1999.

Nnamani said, “We have a tradition in Enugu State politics. The governor is the leader who directs affairs. He will determine who succeeds him without compromising the electoral processes and whoever he chooses will be our next governor.

“I have absolute loyalty and respect for my governor who is also the leader of Ebeano political family. He has demonstrated capacity and leadership. We are waiting for him to lead the way to go in 2023 and we shall follow.

“All the aspirants belong to the Ebeano political family. One hundred percent of them are my primary, secondary and by-products. Some may have close affinity with me which explains the understandable speculations on whom I may be supporting.

But it is the governor that will choose his successor. The political machinery in the state, including the Ebeano family, will be rolled out to support whomever he chooses.”

He advised those promoting division to desist, “because there is no war to be fought”, adding that “we are one family. Whoever emerges will be governor for all.

“No matter the machinations, conspiracies and subterfuges over the governorship primary of our party, we will have a successful transition under the leadership and guidance of our governor.

“It is understandable that some of those who are posturing are seeking for relevance or seeking for political appointments in other parties. That is the beauty of democracy.”

Meanwhile, former governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha has officially declared his intention to contest in the 2023 presidential election.
