Reactions As Senator Ekweremadu 'Lies' About Zoning In Enugu

Reactions As Senator Ekweremadu 'Lies' About Zoning In Enugu (Updated: Thursday, 17th March 2022, 07:37 AM)


Nigerians have reacted on social media over claims by a former deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, that agreement for rotation of governorship position in the state never happened.

This comes after evidence emerged showing that the lawmaker might have lied.

Ekweremadu had last Friday during his declaration for the governorship stated that, “I challenge anybody who says there was a zoning arrangement to come and say where the discussion and the agreement took place.”

According to a report by The Whistler, a document dated 7, 2013 showed Ekweremadu as the fourth person who signed the zoning agreement by the Peoples Democratic Party.

All the federal lawmakers from the state, including incumbent Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, also signed the document.

See reactions below:

Reacting to the statement, a public affairs analyst, Chikeokwu Onuh, said “At times, one wonders why man doesn’t learn from the past. Hubris kills a proud man. Ekweremadu is trying to truncate the peace in Enugu State for selfish reasons. “He has been in the Senate for Donkey years, and voluntarily decided to leave. His vow to become the governor of Enugu State in 2023 is an antithesis of somebody his calibre.”

Sunday Vitus wrote, “He can deceive the gullible but not everyone. When the chips are down, the agreement will surface and the signatories will be unveiled. Perhaps he is ready to contest with APGA.”

Prince Joseph Eze, a business man, said, “It is a case of inordinate ambition. How can anybody say that Enugu State has no zoning arrangement for the governorship? The agreement started in retrospect from Okwesilieze Nwodo of Enugu North zone; to Chimaroke Nnamani of Enugu East, and then to Sullivan Chime of Enugu West. It is presently in Enugu North where Gov Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi comes from.

“It should naturally return to Enugu East zone in 2023. Anybody against this has a skeleton in the cupboard. It is left for the voters to use their powers to either make or mar our peaceful state.”
