PDP crisis: Ikpeazu, Nnamani absent as Atiku visits Enugu

People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar met with party stakeholders in Enugu state on Tuesday.

Informant247 reports that the meeting was a follow-up to its consultations with stakeholders in the six geopolitical zones.

However, it was learnt that, Abia state governor Okezie Ikpeazu and several others were conspicuously absent from the meeting with PDP stakeholders from the southeast.

Ikpeazu, a strong ally of Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike, is among those calling for the resignation of PDP national leader Iyorchia Ayu.

However, the host, Enugu State Governor Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi was present.

Aside from Ikpeazu, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, representing Enugu East’s Senatorial Zone, was also visibly absent.

The former governor was listed as a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council. The party has continued to vigorously defend Nnamani’s inclusion on the list, a development that has unsettled PDP members in his home state of Enugu.

When Atiku met with PDP stakeholders in Enugu, Nnamani was still showing his admiration for APC presidential candidate Ahmed Bola Tinubu on his social media pages.

He wrote: “HE Tinubu is my friend, brother and colleague. I have great respect for him, his political history and his advances in governance. And I’m very proud and very happy with him. If you have a stomach ache, you should go yourself.”
