Deputy Senate President, Sen. Ike Ekweremmadu, has stated that Enugu indigenes resident in Anambra state will vote for Oseloka Obaze, PDP flagbearer in the forthcoming Anambra governorship election.
Ekweremadu gave the assurance on Saturday, during the 4th Edition of Ikeoha Foundation Adult Literacy/Exhibition Day held at Udi Council Headquarters, Udi, Enugu state.
The lawmaker said he is optimistic that if elected, Obaze’s government will be favourable to the people of Enugu state, especially those resident in Anambra.
His words: “Enugu indigenes resident in Onitsha, Nnewi, Awka, and all parts of Anambra state, will support you (Obaze) on the 18th of November.
“We wish you well and we wish you success. By God’s grace, we will be in Anambra next year to be part of your inauguration.”
Speaking, Obaze pointed out that the five South-East states are intertwined and as such, anything that happens in one of the them affects the rest.
While lauding Ekweremmadu’s investment in education and social welfare, Obaze said he will continue to be supportive of such drives.
