A former governor of Enugu state, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has appeared in both campaign councils of the ruling All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party, ahead of the 2023 presidential elections.
TORI recalls that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, had included the former Enugu State Governor in its presidential campaign list to mobilize voters for its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu from the South-East.
The lawmaker who was elected under the platform of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is number 350 in the recently released APC Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, list.
The development had triggered reactions from party stakeholders who concluded that the inclusion of the former governor could be an error.
But in a statement on Monday in Abuja, the Director Media and Publicity of the council, Bayo Onanuga said the inclusion of Chimaroke in the 422-man council was deliberate.
The Federal lawmaker has also continued to make posts in the favour of APC Presidential candidate, Ahmed Bola Tinubu.
It was observed that the lawmaker also made the list of the 600-member campaign council of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Senator Nnamani was listed number 69 in the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar’s campaign council inaugurated on Wednesday in Abuja.
The move by the two major parties to include Senator Nnamani in their campaign councils may not be unconnected to the lawmaker’s influence in Enugu State.
