Mr Okey Ezea, a Labour Party Senatorial candidate for Enugu North has accused governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of excavating a former governor of the state, Chimaroke Nnamani from retirement and bringing him back to political limelight.
Ezea, a business mogul said that apart from bringing Nnamani back to limelight, Ugwuanyi is also trying to install Nnamani’s stooge and former Commissioner of finance, Peter Mbah as governor of the state.
Speaking at a political gathering in the state over the weekend, Okey Ezea said that Governor Ugwuanyi administration has not done enough for Nsukka Senatorial zone, compared to what former governors did in their zones while in power.
He alleged that while Chimaroke Nnamani was governor of the state, people were killed in Enugu, saying that “He was sent to political exile by Ugwuanyi’s predecessor, Sullivan Chime who chased him back to the United States.
“Now, Ugwuanyi brought him back to political limelight and is also trying to install Nnamani’s stooge, Peter Mbah, who was Nnamani’s commissioner for finance, as governor.
“Enugu does not want the return of the Ebeano family. Ebeano political family rendered many families hopeless.
“Under Nnamani’s administration, many families lost loved ones to State-sponsored killings.
“But the people Ugwuanyi killed with hunger are more than the people Nnamani killed through the barrel of the gun.
“There is nobody from Nsukka that can say he was empowered in the last seven years that Ugwuanyi had been governor”, he said.
Okey Ezea alleged that Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi had nothing in the year 2000 to 2001 but suddenly became rich after winning the House of Representatives seat and spent 12 years as a Reps member and Chairman of the House Committee on Maritime and Transport.
Recall that in May Peter Mba, a former Commissioner of finance in Enugu emerged the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Mba, before his emergence was the Managing Director of Pinnacle Oil & Gas, a downstream company.
Most of the assets acquired by Nnamani while he was governor were seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, under a plea-bargain deal.You can call us using the “Call Us Now” button on this site.
