Chimaroke Nnamani Questions Consistent Vote Tally in Enugu East Senatorial Election
Chimaroke Nnamani, the candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Enugu East senatorial district, has raised questions regarding the consistent vote tally that he received in all of the wards. Nnamani lost the seat to Kelvin Chukwu of the Labour Party, who emerged as the winner in the just-concluded election.
The Senator’s Claims
Since the announcement of the election results, Nnamani has expressed dissatisfaction with the outcome and has been questioning the validity of the votes. He claimed that his vote tally reduced at the end and remained at approximately 300 levels across all the wards. Nnamani, who is a former governor of Enugu state, disclosed this in a tweet on Tuesday, stating that his “Ebeano” political structure was far above the votes he scored.
Nnamani’s Support for Chukwu
Despite his disappointment with the election outcome, Nnamani expressed that he had no hard feelings about the situation and would support Kelvin Chukwu, who emerged as the winner of the election. He acknowledged that getting 48,000 votes under the given circumstances was a significant achievement and stated that his ebeano structure, which has been his stronghold for years, goes beyond the votes he received.
Chimaroke Nnamani’s reaction to his loss in the just-concluded Enugu East senatorial election has raised concerns about the credibility of the electoral process. While Nnamani has accepted the result and pledged his support to the winner, the concern over the consistent vote tally in all of the wards remains a mystery yet to be solved.
