Ahead of the 2019 general election, the people of Enugu West senatorial district, have opted to purchase the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship nomination form for governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, in reconfirmation of their earlier endorsement of the governor’s reelection.
The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who is the Senator representing the district in the National Assembly, conveyed the unanimous decision of the zone to Governor Ugwuanyi at the inauguration of Gburugburu Movement, Awgu local government area and endorsement rally/civic reception in honour of the governor by the enthusiastic people of the council, who defied heavy rains to participate in the rich and colorful event.
Senator Ekweremadu reassured Governor Ugwuanyi of “the total support of the entire Enugu West senatorial district”.
The Deputy Senate President added that nobody from the district would contest against the governor, stressing that he has performed creditably well in office; entrenched peace, security and political stability in the state, and deserves a second term, accordingly.
It would be recalled that the people of Enugu North senatorial district had in their recent endorsement rally for Governor Ugwuanyi, equally agreed to purchase his party’s nomination form, in appreciation of his remarkable achievements in office.
In a related development, the people of Nkpologu in Uzo-Uwani local government area, hometown of the Senator representing Enugu North senatorial district, Senator Chukwuka Utazi, also at a civic reception in honour of Governor Ugwuanyi unanimously endorsed him for a second term in office for his unprecedented achievements in the state.
