The people of Enugu State will be electing a new Governor in 2023 to take over the baton of leadership from the current Governor of the State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who is currently on his second term in office.
Political players who have the interest to contest for the post of the governorship seat in Enugu State in 2023 are already working underground to achieve their aim.
The Peoples Democratic Party will try to win the Southeast state and continue ruling the state. Politicians on the platform of PDP who want to take over from Governor Ugwuanyi are already doing their underground work to win the support of the stakeholders in the party ahead of the governorship election in 2023.
One of the influential politicians on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party who is expected to take over the baton of leadership in Enugu State in 2023 is Senator Ike Ekweremadu representing Enugu West Senatorial District.
With his successful political career in the Nigeria Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu is seen as the favourite politician to become the next Governor of Enugu State in 2023 because of two strong reasons.
Political Influence In The State
One of the reasons why Senator Ike Ekweremadu may likely take over from Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi in 2023 is his current political influence in the state.
The Enugu West Senator is one of the famous and most respected politicians in Enugu State. He has been able to carve a niche for himself in Enugu State because of his contribution to the development of his state on the floor of the Nigerian Senate.
Ekweremadu has been representing Enugu West Senatorial District since 2003 and served as Deputy Senate President in the 7th and 8th Senate. He has been able to make his State proud with the achievement he recorded in the Senate chamber.
This has endeared him to his people in Enugu State and make likely work for him in the 2023 governorship election.
Another thing that may also work for Ekweremadu is the strong political structure he has been able to build for himself over the years which may likely favour him to clinch the PDP governorship ticket in 2023.
His Influence In PDP
Another thing that may also work for Ekweremadu in the 2023 Enugu governorship election is his current influence in the Peoples Democratic Party at the national level.
Remember Senator Ike Ekweremadu has never decamped from PDP since he became a Senator in 2003, PDP may likely reward his loyalty and support him to fly the flag of PDP in the 2023 Enugu governorship election.
