Nwobodo can run for Senate in Enugu East’
The Chief of Staff to Enugu State Governor, Mrs. Ifeoma Nwobodo, is qualified to run for the Senate in Enugu East, a former Secretary to the Enugu State Government, Chief Clement Okwor, said yesterday.
He was reacting to a claim in some quarters that Mrs. Nwobodo cannot run for the Senate in Enugu East because she hails from another district.
Okwor said: “The fact that Mrs. Nwobodo is married to an indigene of the senatorial zone makes her an indigene of the district.
“I heard it as a rumour, but those who hold such view should find a better thing to say, as it is a non-issue. She is qualified. If she scales the primaries, I can assure you that she will win because of her antecedents.”
He praised Mrs. Nwobodo for her contributions to the state in the last seven and a half years. Okwor said: “I hail her doggedness and efforts in assisting the governor in running the state. She is a loyal aide and a good organiser. I admire her commitment to making positive changes in the state.”
He said it is not surprising that Enugu under Governor Sullivan Chime has witnessed developments.
Okwor said some of the road projects executed in his area are the Ugwogo-Nike–Opi Nsukka Road, the Eugwogo-Nike– Neke Road, the Amodu-Umeeze Road where the government reconstructed a collapsed bridge built by a previous administration, among others.
“Opi-Nike-Enugu Road has opened another diversion for the people coming from the North or Nsukka to get to Enugu without going through the 9th mile corner, which usually witnesses traffic jams,” he said, adding that economic activities in the area have increased.
