The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, will run his campaign in the state with the assistance of Senator Ken Nnamani, a former president of the Senate, and Sullivan Chime, a former governor of Enugu.
Ben Nwoye, the former chairman of the APC chapter in Enugu, revealed this to reporters on Wednesday following the opening session of the Tinubu/Shettima Support Group in Enugu.
The Director General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechukwu, and Senator Ayogu Eze, among others, are among APC chieftains who would take part in the campaign, according to Nwoye, the coordinator of the Tinubu/Shettima Independent Campaign Group in Enugu.
He promised that the organisation will bring together the party’s feuding members in the state for Tinubu and other candidates running for elected office.
Nwoye stated that the organization has formed a committee that will get in touch with the state’s leading party figures to invite them to return to Enugu and support Tinubu/Shettima.
He said: “A former president of the Senate, Senator Ken Nnamani, and former governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime; Osita Okechukwu, Senator Ayogu Eze, among other stakeholders, would lead the campaigns for Senator Bola Tinubu and other candidates of the party in Enugu State.
“The campaign group had resolved to contact the leaders, including the Director General of Voice of Nigeria, VON, Osita Okechukwu; the 2019 governorship candidate of the APC, Senator Ayogu Eze, and all the leaders who were pushed away by the party leadership in the state.
“We have resolved to unite the party in Enugu State and also contact our leaders and enjoin them to join hands in getting votes for the presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu and his deputy, Shettima and other APC candidates.
“We have set up a committee that will contact our top leaders, Senator Ken Nnamani; former governor, Sullivan Chime; Senator Ayogu Eze, Mr Osita Okechukwu, Onyemuche Nnamani, Juliet Ibekaku and others to come back to Enugu and join hands to seek votes for the success of Tinubu in the next 2023 election.
“Our focus is to win elections in 2023. We are not concerned with the issue of who is authentic or who hijacked the party.
