PDP Senator makes Tinubu Campaign Council list

A Peoples Democratic Party PDP chieftain and Senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District, Mr Chimaroke Nnamani has been listed as a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, ahead of next year’s Presidential Election.

Nnamani, a former governor of Enugu state is Number 350 on the 422-member campaign council. He is listed as a member of the local government directorate.


Senator Nnamani had last month described the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a strong politician but said he would vote for his own party’s candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

Neither the APC nor the council has responded to messages seeking clarifications on the seeming mix up.

 

Chimaroke Nnamani named in error — the correct name is Ken Nnamani

  

The All Progressives Congress, APC and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidential Campaign Council have admitted error in announcing former Governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani as a member of the council.


The person, who should have been listed is former Senate President, Senator Ken Nnamani, a member of the council and one of the Spokesmen, Mr Bayo Onanuga, clarified in a chat with Vanguard

Senator Chimaroke Nnamani is a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain, Senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District and a supporter of PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.


The senator’s name was number 350 on the 422-member campaign council and listed as a member of the local government directorate.

 

Senator Chimaroke Nnamani had last month described the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a strong politician but said he would vote for his own party’s candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.


Lamenting the mix-up, Mr. Onanuga said the mistake could have arisen from the fact that Chimaroke shares a surname with Ken is also a prominent politician from Enugu.

“It is an error. It should be Ken Nnamani,” he said.

Before the clarification, an aide to Senator Chimaroke Nnamani said the announcement should be ignored.

“Chimaroke is a PDP Senator. He has a PDP re-election ticket. How can he be in Tinubu’s campaign council? Please, ignore it “
