A former Enugu State Governor, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, has predicted that All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will win the 2023 presidential election.
Nnamani restated his preference for Tinubu to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, insisting that Tinubu will be elected the next president on February 25, 2023.
The Senator currently representing Enugu East Senatorial District spoke in his country home Agbani in Nkanu West Local Government Area while hosting some members of the APC Presidential Campaign Council.
They included former Senate President, Ken Nnamani; APC PCC spokesman in the South-East, Dr. Josef Onoh; Chief Onyemuche Nnamani, A. C. Udeh, among others.
Nnamani said, “Come February 25 2023, Asiwaju Tinubu will be elected the next president of Nigeria.
“There’s a need for people to know that my choice (Tinubu) was not for personal reasons but for mainstreaming of the South-East into Nigeria politics.”
Senator Ken Nnamani also restated his own commitment to Tinubu’s presidential bid, saying that it was for the national interest.
Onoh said the former Enugu governor has remained consistent in abiding by the Asaba, Enugu and Lagos accord of the Southern Governors that the next president should be of a Southern origin.
Onoh said, “I thank Senator Chimaroke Nnamani for standing by that principle and his commitment towards ensuring that Asiwaju emerges the next president of Nigeria.
“I have made it clear that the time has come not just for renewed hope for Nigeria but for our future generation.
“Asiwaju as a father has come to a point where he said that what he wants to offer is a better foundation for all parts of the country and I’m with Asiwaju in that course.”
