PDP, Atiku lack moral rights to suspend me after destroying zoning – Nnamani



The decision of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to jettison the zoning arrangement is the reason being given by former Governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, for throwing his support to the the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Nnamani, a two-term governor and currently serving for another two terms at the Senate as representative of Enugu East was on January 20 slammed with a suspension by the leadership of the PDP for alleged anti-party activities.

But, the former governor, in a statement, on Monday, brushed off the action as “penkelemesi” (peculiar mess) that will collapse in no time, saying the order was ill-conceived and unwarranted, as his right to a fair hearing was violated because he was neither informed of any complaints against him nor was he invited to the matter.

“My decision to pitch tent with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was necessitated by the PDP’s refusal to comply with its own constitution to wit; those key political offices should at all times be rotated between the South and North to guarantee harmony, peace, fairness, equity and justice.

“As it is now, there is no fairness, justice and equity in the PDP because both the presidential candidate and the national chairman are from the same region. I am only exercising my right of freedom of choice and association. On this score, I stand with Tinubu.”

Nnamani, while urging the leadership of the PDP to put its house in order, accusing it of lacking both moral and constitutional backing.
