Yesterday, the former deputy senate president; Senator Ike Ekeremadu officially declared his interest in vying for the governorship position of Enugu state, and this development has made many members of the People Democratic Party be unhappy and downcast.



According to them, the Senator is not honoring the 'oral zoning agreement' made within the party in 2013.

However, Ekeremadu has challenged anyone to give details of the zoning arrangement and there have been several grievances about it.

It will be recalled that the tenure of the incumbent governor will end in 2023, and the governor is from the North why it is expected that the Eastern senatorial zone to produce the next governor.

Senator Ekweremadu while throwing a challenge to those advocating for zoning to tell him at what point, in whose house and those at the meeting where zoning was agreed, failed to make clarification on the statements made by some leaders like Sullivan Chime, Okwesilieze Nwodo, Ben Collins Ndu and others who have stated unequivocally that the leaders of Enugu state met in 2013, and agreed on zoning.

On February 18, 2021, Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo an elder statesman and former governor of old Enugu state at a PDP campaign rally in Igbo-etiti LGA disclosed that the PDP leadership in Enugu had zoned the governrorship position of the state to Enugu East senatorial zone in 2023.

Dr Nwodo who is also a former National Chairman of PDP said that he was in the party meeting alongside other leaders, such as the then Governor, Mr. Sullivan Chime, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, the then State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Vita Abba, where the decision was taken.


The former Governor revealed that it was Chief Dubem Onyia who moved the motion at the meeting, which was seconded by Senator Ben Collins Ndu, with an amendment by Dr. Charles Egumgbe that the governorship position should go to Enugu East Senatorial District in 2023 after the turn of Enugu North Senatorial District, which is presently occupied by Gov. Ugwuanyi.
