Ekweremadu Withdraws From Enugu Guber Race, Congratulates PDP Primary Election Winner

Former Nigerian Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has withdrawn from the 2023 Enugu State gubernatorial race, IGBERETV reports.

Ekweremadu has congratulated the winner of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial election primary for Enugu State, Barrister Peter Mba.

Taking to his Facebook page, Ekweremadu wrote;


Ndi Enugu,

In the last two years, we set out to run for the governorship of Enugu State. Our mission was to change the narrative in the governance of our state and possibly inspire other states in the delivery of impressive governance. Our hope was that this would lead to a total recalibration of governance in Nigeria with Enugu State as a starting point and model.

Within the period, we set up a platform with a grassroots base. We named it Oganiru Ndi Enugu. It was duly registered. We received 77 support groups, which showed uncommon support to our mission.

To show our seriousness, we developed and presented our manifesto entitled “My Agenda for Enugu State: A Pathway to a New Enugu State”.

We were prepared to deliver good governance that would see to the prompt payment of salaries and retirement benefits to our senior citizens. We pledged to build not just roads, but also super highways that would connect our borders with other states and a ring road that would connect our local government areas.

We were set to deliver water and electricity to our cities and communities as well as impeccable environmental cleanliness.
