The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Tuesday, met with the Party’s stakeholders in Enugu State, in continuation of his consultation with stakeholders across the six geo-political zones.
However, Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, a strong ally of Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike who is among those calling for the resignation of the PDP national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, and some others were conspicuously absent.
The host, Enugu State Governor, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi was, however, in attendance.
Apart from Ikpeazu, also visibly absent was Senator Chimaroke Nnamani representing Enugu East Senatorial zone.
The former Governor was listed as a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential campaign council. The party has continued to vigorously defend Nnamani’s inclusion on the list, a development that has unsettled PDP members in his home State, Enugu.
Nnamani, who has not hidden his admiration for the APC Presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, posted conspicuously on his social media pages: “HE Tinubu is my friend, brother and colleague. I have great respect for him, his political antecedents and strides in governance. And I am very proud and well pleased with him. Anybody belly aching should go himself.”
