Deputy Senate President, Chief Ike Ekweremmadu, on Saturday gave assurance of the support of Enugu indigenes resident in Anambra State for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) standard bearer, Mr. Oseloka Obaze, in the forthcoming November 18 governorship election in the state.

Ekweremmadu gave the assurance at the 4th Edition of Ikeoha Foundation Adult Literacy/Exhibition Day held at Udi Council Headquarters, Udi, Enugu State.

The lawmaker expressed optimism that a government run by Obaze will be favourable to the people of Enugu State, especially those resident in Anambra State.

His words: “Enugu indigenes resident in Onitsha, Nnewi, Awka, and all parts of Anambra state, will support you (Obaze) on the 18th of November.

“We wish you well, and we wish you success. By God’s grace, we will be in Anambra next year to be part of your inauguration.”

Speaking during the event, Obaze said the five South-East states are intertwined, adding that anything that happens in one of the states affects the rest.

While hailing Ekweremmadu’s investment in education and social welfare, Obaze said he will continue to be supportive of such drive.
