ENUGU—A State Chairmanship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Enugu State, Deacon Okey Ogbodo, has reacted to the exit of Senator Ken Nnamani from PDP, saying that majority of the people in Enugu State still belong to the PDP.
He noted that the exit of Senators Jim Nwobodo and Ken Nnamani from the PDP, has in no way diminished the popularity of the party in the Coal City State.
He was also quick to point out that PDP remains the most popular brand and political institution in the state.
Ogbodo said that those who came through the back door to the PDP are taking bows, maintaining that he remains the “anointed” state party chairman to put Enugu State in the PDP camp which he said remains “a great party.”
Ogbodo who is related to Nwobodo and Nnamani regretted that Nwobodo as a founding member of the PDP left the party but noted that he is a factor in reuniting parties and affiliates in the state. He stated that Enugu East Senatorial zone where Nnamani and Nwobodo came from is still great in the party.
