Former President of the Senate Ken Nnamani, yesterday in an interview in Abuja insisted that the zoning of the 2023 gubernatorial election in Enugu State to Enugu East senatorial zone is for justice and fairness, noting that the principle of zoning of key political offices has been sustained in the state since 1999.


Nnamani commended political leaders like the Governor of Enugu State Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Governor of old Anambra state Jim Nwobodo, former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Okwesilieze Nwodo, former governor, Chimaroke Nnamani and his successor Sullivan Chime for affirming the turn of Enugu east zone to produce the next governor.


He reiterated that justice and fairness demanded that the zoning principle be respected by the political players in the state, stressing that it has fostered peace and harmony while giving every zone a sense of belonging.
The former lawmaker expressed hope that other political parties including All Progressive Congress (APC) and All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) will follow suit in upholding zoning and ceding their governorship tickets to Enugu East zone.
