Former Governor of Enugu state and Senator representing Enugu East in the Senate, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, has formally withdrawn his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) just as he expressed appreciation to his constituents for the unalloyed support over the years.
He quit after he was defeated by Kelvin Chukwu of the Labour Party in the keenly contested election for Enugu East Senate seat.
Senator Nnamani said he had consulted with his associates and constituents alike and decided to quit the PDP on account of irreconcilable differences with the national leadership of the party.
He said 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 on.
Senator 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, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and promised to continue to partner him.
Senator Nnamani expressed optimism that a Tinubu Administration would promote good governance, rule of law, and human rights for the interest of all Nigerians.
He had been expelled by PDP and withdrawn from the race.
