The 2023 political realignment in Enugu State is likely to have begun, as former governor of the state, Chimaroke Nnamani, yesterday, led members of his Ebeano political group to confer leadership on present Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

The realignment kicked off with the likes of serving and former members of the National Assembly, State House of Assembly, former ministers, party leaders and others produced by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state since 1999. The group pledged their support for Ugwuanyi, urging him to declare the zone that should produce his successor in line with ongoing rotational arrangement in the state.

Former state Governor, Nnamani said:

“I was governor from 1999 to 2007. When it was time to hand over, I named the zone that will produce my successor and from that zone named my successor in Sullivan Chime, who of course, is a member of Ebeano political family.

“After eight years that Chime served, he also named his successor to come from Enugu north. That was in 2015 and that is why we have the present governor, who is the leader of the Ebeano as governor. So, after eight years, it is within your right to name the zone that will succeed you. Whether it is Udi, Nsukka or Enugu East and whoever you name will become the governor.”
