2023: Drama as Tinubu’s campaign names PDP Senator as member by error

APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu 

The All Progressives Congress (APC) and Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidential Campaign Council has admitted error in announcing former Governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani as a member of the council.

According to a member of the council and one of its spokesmen, Mr Bayo Onanuga, the person, who should have been listed, is former Senate President, Senator Ken Nnamani.

Chimaroke is a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator representing the 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 had last month described the presidential candidate of the APC, Tinubu as a strong politician but said he would vote for his own party’s candidate, Abubakar.

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

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

Before the clarification, an aide to Senator Chimaroke 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,” he said.
