The Nsukka Elders in Enugu State, Thursday, frowned at the sudden emergence of the Deputy Senate President, DSP, Chief Ike Ekweremadu’s posters for the 2015 governorship race, saying, it was the turn of Nsukka to produce the next governor of the state.
The leaders said they were surprised that, Ekweremwdu would be nursing an ambition to govern the state even when his zone would have ruled for 16 years by 2015, when the incumbent Governor Sullivan Chime would hand over power after two terms of four years each.
According to them, it was a mindless calculation ‘’for political jobbers in their warped imagination to craft the possibility of the governorship seat still remaining in the same old Enugu zone beyond 2015.
The statement entitled, ‘’2015 Campaign Posters of Senator Ike Ekweremadu,’’ and signed by the Chairman of the Elders Committee in the area, Chief Maximus Ukuta along with Chief Nick Ojike, Prof. Damian Opata, Dr. Chuka Ezema, Chief Emmanuel Alachi, Sir Albert Nnamani and Major General Godwin Ugwoke (rtd)
They expressed worry over the development, even though these posters were quickly cleared by angry youths.
