Obi, stakeholders endorse Uche Ekwunife for re-run



Former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi and stakeholders from Anambra Central Senatorial District, have restated their support for Senator Uche Ekwunife to return to the Senate to complete her tenure.

It would be recalled that the Court of Appeal in Enugu had nullified her election and ordered fresh election within 90 days.

Obi said this at a Town Hall meeting organised by Senator Ekwunife in Awka, yesterday, noting that he supported the stakeholders’ endorsement of Senator Ekwunife.

He added that it was high time Ndigbo played mainstream politics to be able to jostle for collective benefits due them.

According to him,  “We need somebody that is strong, a senator at the centre. Ume will be a spectator at the Senate.

The senate does not need multiple titleholders or long traditional cap wearers, who rather than stay in Abuja, run down to Anambra State every weekend. We need somebody who is strong in the caliber of Uche. She will win. Those who caused the nullification made a great mistake.

“The Court of Appeal faulted only Uche Ekwunife’s nomination whereas same party and primary conducted for her fellow Senators, Andy Ubah (Anambra South) and Stella Oduah (Anambra North) were upheld by the same Court of Appeal”.

In a communiqué after the meeting signed by Kenneth Ekemuo and Hon. Ben Oranusi, the stakeholders appreciated the stewardship rendered by Senator Ekwunife during her brief stay in the Senate with regard to clinching the post of the Senate Committee Chairman on Petroleum Downstream.

They also expressed happiness that Senator Ekwunife had secured appointments for several persons within the period under review, moved many motions beneficial to Ndigbo and supplied hospital equipment to 50 health centres.
