News Break: APGA candidate, Nweke reacts to Ebeano video, calls Nnamani political father

By Udoka Benjamin

The former Minister for Information and communication, Frank Nweke Jnr. has said that he has never denied the former governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani for being his political godfather.

In an interview with our correspondent, Ifeyinwa Anyanwu which took place today at his Enugu residence, the APGA guber candidate said that the manner in which the supporters of other political parties were spreading the news had looked as if he has ever denied the former governor of being responsible for his political growth.

He maintained that Nnamani as a governor gave numerous sons and daughters from poor backgrounds the enabling environment to grow politically, stating that almost all the political bigwigs in the state today are products of the Ebeano political dynasty.

He called on the opposition to desist from digging into one’s past but concentrate on selling the manifestoes of their candidate because every standing tree has its root.

”When I saw the video yesterday night, I giggled and laughed. We all that are contesting for the post of Enugu governorship are the product of the Ebeano family. So, why are they making it so special as if I am the only one that is still loyal to Nnamani? I can’t forget where I am coming from and I can never bite the finger that fed me because no one knows tomorrow. I have never said that Nnamani is bad, the same way other candidates like Chijioke Edeoga and Mbah have never done. Everyone knows about it and so, what is the need to deny the known? I was a member of PDP since 1999 and I left for APGA because I felt that is where I can get the ticket to serve my people”, Nweke asserted.

Recall that the video making the round has Nweke praising the former governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, and other members of the Ebeano political dynasty saying that he was a nobody until he met the former governor who brought him close, nurtured him, and gave him space to operate in the state’s political arena to the point that I was the closest cabinet member to him who knows what others never knew.
