Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has withdrawn from Enugu East senatorial election, re-scheduled for March 11, following the expulsion of its candidate, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani.
The PDP, in a letter to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), following Nnamani’s expulsion, said it no longer has a candidate for the election.
The letter dated February 22, and signed by the National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu and National Secretary, Samuel Anyanwu, said since the former governor is no longer a member of the opposition party, he cannot longer contest the poll on its be platform.
Meanwhile, Former governor of Enugu State Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has described his purported expulsion from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a sham, affirming that he has been properly cleared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to contest the Saturday’s polls.
Nnamani therefore assured his constituents that his candidature for the election is irrevocable.
Nnamani, in a letter to the chairman of INEC Professor Mahmoud Yakubu, through his counsel Rickey Tarfa SAN, said nothing has warranted him to withdraw from the race.
