Former Enugu Governor Chimaroke Nnamani Reveals Why He Lost Senate Bid



Nnamani Loses to Kevin Chukwu

Former Enugu State governor Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has explained why he lost his bid to return to the Senate. Nnamani, a Senator representing Enugu East, lost to Kevin Chukwu of the Labour Party. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced that Chukwu polled 69,136 votes to defeat Nnamani who polled 48,701 votes.

Nnamani Leaves PDP

Nnamani on Monday announced that he has left the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). On Tuesday, he cited betrayal and sabotage as the reasons he lost the election and a potential opportunity to vie for Senate presidency. “Enugu people know I can not lose election in “ebeano Country”. I wish Sen. Kelvin Chukwu well,” Nnamani tweeted.

The Story of Betrayal and Sabotage

“The real story will follow the conclusion of all the elections. A story of betrayal and sabotage by little minds. Who thought they were killing the dream of a Senate Presidency.”

Nnamani’s statement raises questions about party loyalty and trustworthiness. It also hints at potential conflicts within the PDP, and on a larger scale, the Nigerian political scene. Nevertheless, Kevin Chukwu’s victory marked a significant upset for Nnamani, who had previously served as governor of Enugu State from 1999 to 2007.
