…praises Nnamani, Ugwuanyi for political harmony
Fearless Tele-evangelist and social crusader, Rev Father Ejike Mbaka, has showered encomiums on the progenitor of Ebeano political family in Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, for bequeathing a legacy of smooth and successive governorship transitions since 1999.
The cleric said transition from one governorship tenure to another had been uninterrupted on account of Senator Nnamani’s Ebeano political family structure in the state.
Mbaka in a trending video from his Adoration Ministry said the smooth transitions from one administration to another and adherence to the rotation principle among the three Senatorial zones brought political harmony in the coal city state.
The clergyman in the unusual accolades said Senator Nnamani instituted Ebeano political dynasty that has produced Barr Sullivan Chime from Enugu West ( 2007 —2015) , Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi from Enugu North (2015——2023) and has produced Barr Peter Mba from Enugu East that would likely win the governorship election in 2023.
Senator Nnamani was a two time Governor of the state from 1999 to 2007 during which he founded the Ebeano political family, which has remained dominant in the administration of the state since 1999.
Mbaka stated, “ The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) choice of Peter Mba for the governorship race next year is a wise one. As an entrepreneur, he will bring his expertise to bear in terms of job creation and improve infrastructure in Enugu State.”
Mbaka, who was a critic of Senator Nnamani during his tenure as the governor of Enugu State, noted that “the Senator was not bad as a governor, after all. He brought Chime and Chime facilitated the emergence of Ugwuanyi (An Apostle of peace) and both of them products of Ebeano family performed creditably .
“I believe the choice of Mba for 2023 governorship also from Ebeano political family is good. Mba has a track record of performance in the management of human and material resources from the private sector. He will deliver.”
The cleric appreciated other governorship contestants, who stepped down for Mba to emerge at the primary and agreed to work with him, saying, “They need to work together as a team for the good and development of Enugu State.”
Mbaka, however, counseled politicians ahead of the forthcoming elections to play the game according to the rules, saying politics should be played like a game devoid of rancour or acrimony.
