Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has pulled out as a member from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after he lost his re-election bid in Enugu East Senatorial district to Labour Party candidate, Sir Kelvin Chukwu.
Nnamani, a former Governor of Enugu State, announced his exit from the PDP in a statement in Abuja on Monday.
He expressed appreciation to his constituents for their unalloyed support over the years.
According to Nnamani, he has consulted with his associates and constituents and has decided to quit the PDP on account of irreconcilable differences with the national leadership of the party.
He said that he had moved on and hoped that his modest contributions to the development of his constituency would be the building blocks on which his successors could build.
Nnamani thanked Nigerians, especially the ‘Ebeano’ political family and urged them to remain steadfast in the years ahead.
The former governor reaffirmed his acquaintance with the President-elect Sen. Bola Tinubu and promised to continue to partner with him.
He expressed optimism that a Tinubu-led administration would promote good governance, rule of law and human rights for the interest of all Nigerians.
