Tinubu camp clarifies inclusion of PDP Senator, Chimaroke to APC Presidential Campaign Council

The All Progressives Congress (APC) and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidential Campaign Council have reacted to the appearance of former Governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, name on the list of members of the council.

Reacting to the development, a member of the council and one of the Spokesmen, Mr Bayo Onanuga, said Senator Chimaroke name was added in error.

The person, who should have been listed is former Senate President, Senator Ken Nnamani, Onanuga told Vanguard

Senator Chimaroke Nnamani is a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain, Senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District and a supporter of PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The senator’s name was number 350 on the 422-member campaign council and listed as a member of the local government directorate.

Senator Chimaroke Nnamani had last month described the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a strong politician but said he would vote for his own party’s candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

Lamenting the mix-up, Mr. Onanuga said the mistake could have arisen from the fact that Chimaroke shares a surname with Ken is also a prominent politician from Enugu.

“It is an error. It should be Ken Nnamani,” he said.

Before the clarification, an aide to Senator Chimaroke Nnamani said the announcement should be ignored.

“Chimaroke is a PDP Senator. He has a PDP re-election ticket. How can he be in Tinubu’s campaign council? Please, ignore it.“
