Senator representing Enugu East and former governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Chimaroke quits PDP in a press release he signed and made available to newsmen in Abuja, on Monday, according to Vanguard Newspaper.
Chimaroke had openly conversed votes for the then Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress now President-Elect, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu against the candidate of his party, Atiku Abubakar during the 2023 elections.
The former Enugu State Governor, now Senator representing Enugu East, announced his resignation from the PDP barely 24 hours after losing his bid to return to the Senate on the same platform.
Chimaroke Nnamani lost his senatorial reelection bid to Labour Party candidate, Kelvin Chukwu.
He equally expressed appreciation to his constituents for the unalloyed support over the years.
According to Senator Chimaroke, he has consulted with his associates and constituents alike and have decided to quit the PDP on account of irreconcilable differences with the national leadership of the party.
He thanked Nigerians especially the Ebeano political family and urged them to remain steadfast in the years ahead.
“The former Governor reaffirmed his acquaintance with the President-Elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu and promised to continue to partner with him.
“Senator Nnamani expressed optimism that a Tinubu Administration will promote good governance ,rule of law and human rights for the interest of all Nigerians”, the press release reads.
