I stand with Tinubu, Nnamani insists

Chimaroke Nnamani

Former Governor Chimaroke Nnamani of Enugu State has declared his suspension from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as null and void, insisting he stands with Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Nnamani, who currently represents Enugu-East at the Senate, said this in a statement in Abuja.

“The PDP suspension without hearing is incurably messy and will collapse,” he said.

Nnamani said his decision to pitch tent with Tinubu was caused by the PDP’s refusal to comply with its own constitution that key political offices should be rotated between south and north to guarantee harmony, peace, fairness, equity and justice.

“As it is now, there is no fairness, justice and equity in the PDP because both the Presidential Candidate and the National Chairman are from the same region.

“I am only exercising my right for freedom of choice and association. On this score, I stand with Tinubu,” he said.

Nnamani urged the leadership of the PDP to put its house in order, saying that his suspension from the party lacked both moral and constitutional backing.
