0 160

The youths, women, council of elder and clergy groups in the Isi-Uzo local government chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has asked Dr. Davidson Nnamani to contest for the 2023 governorship election in Enugu state.

The party groups made the request when they visited Nnamani in his country home, Ikem, during the weekend.

The party members that included non- indigenes resident in the local government maintained that it was the turn of Isi-Uzo local government to produce the next governor of Enugu state in 2023.

One of the delegates and an Anglican priest, Rev. Nwankemmadu Ogenyi, disclosed that Isi-Uzo has not benefitted from any collective political position since 1999, stressing that the local government area is being marginalised in Enugu state.


The clergyman expressed believe that their preferred candidate would emerge victorious in the poll on the platform APC, which according to him, is the party at the centre.

A representative of APC women groups, Mrs. Justina Ede, explained that their request was based of the track record and achievements of Nnamani, describing him as a man who has the interest of Isi-Uzo and Enugu state at heart.

Speaking on behalf of non-indigenes residing in Isi-Uzo, Mrs. Christiana Onah said that the non-indigenes in Isi-Uzo would not hesitate to elect someone, who would deliver dividends of democracy to them.

“Despite repeated calls for the PDP-controlled state government to fix Ikem-Eha-Amufu road, nothing has been done to the extent that plying the road has become a nightmare for the road users,” Onah lamented.


Youth representative, Mr. Samuel Uguru, said that the youths in the party were solidly behind the call for Nnamani to vie for the governorship seat.

Responding, Dr. Dave Nnamani thanked his people for the trust they reposed in him by requesting him to join the governorship race in the forthcoming election.

Nnamani told the delegates that he would engage in a wider consultation on their request and make his intention known at the appropriate time and assured them that he would not disappoint them.
