ABUJA â€” FORMER Senate President, Nnamani Ken, has disclosed that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will fill a candidate for governorship of Enugu State in the 2015 general election from the northern part of the state.
Nnamani said all stakeholders in the party from the state had already reached a consensus that Governor Sullivan Chimeâ€™s successor should emerge from Enugu North senatorial zone.
The former Senate President, who is a delegate at the ongoing National Conference, told newsmen, yesterday, that settling for someone from that part of the state was aimed at ending the controversy surrounding the 2015 governorship election in Enugu State.
He said the development was the outcome of a reconciliatory meeting among PDP stakeholders in the state.
He said: â€œEnugu State does not seem to have any succession problem because we have a conventional understanding that when Enugu East completed its eight years, it went to Enugu West and after Enugu West, it is only proper that governorship power should go to Enugu North. It is not written anywhere, but it is conventional.
