The Leaders comprising Honorable members of Enugu State House of Assembly, Council Chairmen and PDP local government Chairmen of the six local government areas of Enugu East Senatorial Zone after a crucial meeting on March 22, 2022 insisted on zoning.

Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for restoring the Peace in Enugu State as never before especially among the political gladiators as this has ensured stability in the polity. The governor’s
developmental strides are too numerous to be
catalogued here and we are grateful on behalf of our people who are beneficiaries and 100 percent supporters of His Excellency”.
“That we commend and appreciate His Excellencies Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, Dr Sullivan Chime and other notable
leaders from the other senatorial zones for speaking out in favour of TRUTH and support of the existing power rotation/zoning understanding. We therefore urge Ndi
Enugu especially stakeholders from outside our zone to stand firm and strong in support of Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s desire to maintain the zoning agreement”.
“That we condemn in its entirety the attempt being made by certain characters to plunge the State into unnecessary and avoidable political anarchy by trying to
disrupt the existing zoning agreement which has ensured peace in Enugu state”.
“That it is even more appalling when the people involved are Leaders that have been benefiting froma consensus understanding in all their political positions for over 19
“That it is the zoning of the governorship seat in the State that produced His Excellency, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani from Enugu East Senatorial Zone) who was Governor
2007 and was succeeded by His
Excellency, Sullivan Chime (Enugu West Senatorial Zone) from 2007-2015. Chime was in turn succeeded in 2015 by Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu North Senatorial Zone)
from 1999 whose tenure will end in 2023”.
“That from the aforementioned and in line with the accepted and existing zoning of governorship seat in Enugu state, it is the turn of Enugu East Senatorial zone to produce Governor Ugwuanyi’s successor in 2023 as
this has brought about peace before, during and after the elections all these years.
“That this position represents the stand of our founding fathers and stakeholders irrespective of their political
affiliations. That what is good for the goose is delightful to the gander. That this is more so when it is the turn of the gander, in this context is Enugu East Senatorial”
“That we view it as a collective insult to our people and height of ingratitude that those who were direct beneficiaries from our zone at the Lion Building are those spearheading this unprovoked malice against PDP Enugu State”.
