Former governor of Enugu State and Senator representing Enugu East, Chimaroke Nnamani, on Saturday said he “will never support a North-to-North transition in an African plural democracy”.
Naijinfo reports that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had on Friday announced the expulsion of Nnamani and six others from the party.
They were expelled for alleged anti-party activities and other grave offences in violation of the Constitution of the PDP.
Initially, the PDP chieftains were suspended.
Nnamani had at the time of his suspension openly promoted the candidacy of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the opposition, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He has refused to openly support his party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, since the former Vice-President emerged as the PDP’s presidential flag-bearer in May 2022. The incumbent Nigerian leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, is from Katsina State in the North-West region.
