APC faction endorses Enugu PDP guber candidate, Mbah

A faction of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu state led by former Senate President, Chief Ken Nnamani, has endorsed the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, gubernatorial candidate in the state, Mr Peter Mbah, as their preferred candidate for the March 11 governorship election in the state.

The clergy, traditional institutions, and other major stakeholders in Enugu state, including Senator Jim Nwobodo and Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, among others, also backed the PDP candidate.

On Friday, the APC and other state leaders took a stand at Enugu’s Michael Okpara Square during a rally organized by the PDP’s Enugu East Senatorial Zone chapter.

The Enugu APC Chieftains made their position known through the immediate past chairman of the party in the State, Dr. Ben Nwoye, and their supporters who spoke at the rally, saying that they were sent by Senate Ken Nnamani and other members of their party.

Recall that the Ken Nnamani faction of the APC had on Wednesday, last week, boycotted the presidential rally of the party when their presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu came for campaign.

Speaking at the PDP Podium, the former APC state Chairman, Nwoye, said he came to represent Senator Ken Nnamani, as well as in his personal capacity, disclosing that having assessed all the guber candidates in the state, Mbah stood out.

“Peter Mbah is the incoming governor of Enugu State. We have looked at everything, we studied your manifesto and character, we looked at your temperament and you stood out among others.

“We concluded that the decision on the leadership of Enugu State should not be by party, I’m a member of APC but I and my followers will vote for you,” Nwoye said.

He, however, said they would support Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the presidential election.

He said, “I’m a member of the APC PCC but after February 25, we are going to turn everything over to Barr. Peter Mbah.”
