Chimaroke Nnamani, the senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
He announced his exit from the PDP after he lost his senatorial bid to the Labour Party.
Nnamani also expressed appreciation to his constituents for the unalloyed support over the years.
The former Enugu State governor’s formal exit from the opposition party was contained in a statement he signed on Monday.
The PUNCH reports how the senator was expelled by the PDP on February 10, 2023, alongside some other key party members for alleged anti-party activities. This is also as he lost his bid to return to the Senate to his rival Kelvin Chukwu of the Labour Party.
Nnamani stated that he had consulted with his associates and constituents alike and had decided to quit the PDP on account of irreconcilable differences with the national leadership of the party.
Speaking further, he noted that he had moved on and hoped that his modest contributions to the development of his constituency would be the building block on which his successors could build on.
While reaffirming his acquaintance with the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, he promised to continue to partner him.
The former governor also thanked Nigerians especially the Ebeano political family and urged them to remain steadfast in the years ahead.
He further expressed optimism that the Tinubu administration would promote good governance, rule of law and human rights for the interest of all Nigerians.
