Chimaroke Nnamani, a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP senator, has described Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, as his “friend, brother, and colleague”.
Senator Nnamani stated this on Tuesday, September 27, while reacting to the question from a Twitter user, Henry Shield (@henryshield) on whether or not he is working for Tinubu.
Recall that the name of Nnamani, a serving senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District, was included in the 422-man list of the APC presidential campaign council.
Shield asked on Twitter:
“Now that former Governor @ChimarokeNamani and I have followed each other and watching Festus Keyamo’s answer to the question of the former governor’s inclusion in the APC Presidential List few days ago on Channels, I have to ask again, Your Excellency, are you working for Tinubu?”
In his reaction, Nnamani said he is a loyal member of the PDP and he is campaigning for his party.
The former governor of Enugu state said he has great respect for Tinubu, just as he accompanied his response with a short video of him opposing the social media bill on the floor of the Senate.
He wrote: “My dear Henry Shield Nwazuruahu. Thanks for following me and honoring follow4 follow policy. Democracy is a wonderful thing. I am a PDP member, PDP senatorial candidate. Loyal and campaigning for my party.
“HE Tinubu is my friend, brother and colleague. I have great respect for him,his political antecedents, and strides in governance. And I am very proud and well pleased with him. Any body belly aching should go ….. himself.”
