Sen. Chimaroke Nnamani (PDP-Enugu) has said his decision to support Asawaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC was because of the refusal by his party to comply with its constitution on rotation of presidency between South and North.

Nnamani, who represents Enugu-East at the National Assembly, said this in a statement in Abuja while affirming his support to the presidential ambition of the APC presidential candidate.

He noted that the rotation policy was included in the constitution of PDP to guarantee harmony, peace, fairness, equity and justice.

“As it is now, there is no fairness, justice and equity in the PDP because both the Presidential Candidate and the National Chairman are from the same region,” said Nnamani, who has refused to support Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of his party.

The Senator added that his suspension from the PDP by the National working committee (NWC) of the party because of his support for Tinubu is null and void.

“The PDP suspension without hearing is incurably messy and will collapse,” he said.

“I am only exercising my right for freedom of choice and association. On this score, I stand with Tinubu,” he said.

Nnamani urged the leadership of the PDP to put its house in order, saying that his suspension from the party lacked both moral and constitutional backings.(NAN)
