ENUGU — Senator Ike Ekweremadu has challenged zoning arrangements in picking candidates for gubernatorial positions in Enugu state.
The former Deputy Senate President in a consultative session with the media in Enugu on Friday said, “Nothing like zoning had been discussed in a round table or in any other way by anyone; as a stakeholder in PDP I am sure of this and anyone that wants to challenge this, should come with evidence.”
Ekweremadu aka Ikeoha Ndigbo also used the medium to reveal his 2023 agenda tagged “A pathway to a New Enugu”;
On good governance, he said, “We will run open door governance, fight corruption, introduce an E-government to ensure that government is run 24hours; we look forward to running a government that will see all people as equal before the law and repositions Enugu state judiciary.”
He further promised to end water scarcity in the state, construct rural and urban roads and not interfere in Local Government funds.
Ikeoha reminisced on his accomplishments as a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He said that beyond Enugu West senatorial zone, he was able to attract developmental projects across all parts of Enugu.
Ike Ekweremadu born in 1962 at Amachara Mpu in Aninri LGA is a serving Senator at the National Assembly representing Enugu West Senatorial zone.
He has served in the National Assembly for five consecutive times; first elected in 2003, returned 2007 when he served as Deputy Senate President, re-elected again in 2011, 2015 and 2019; he is serving till date.
Meanwhile, over 600 executives in Local Government Council and Wards in the state led by Sunday Ajogwu on Friday paid a solidarity visit to Ugwuanyi at the Government House Enugu.
In their words, “all our uncountable members across 260 electoral wards in the state are intact, royal, motivated, and ready, in high spirit and on ground; we are waiting patiently for you (Governor Ugwuanyi) to speak and you will see the wonders of this original G17.”
Declaring 100% loyalty to Ugwuanyi and his decisions as pertains Enugu 2023 gubernatorial election, one would wonder if their solidarity march was spurred by the declarations of Ike Ekweremadu on no zoning arrangement?
