Nnamani congratulates Ekweremadu, baffled about attacks at reception

PRESS RELEASE July 1, 2007

Chimaroke Nnamani heartily congratulates Senator Ike Ekweremadu and other legislators on the successful reception held in their honour, Saturday, June 30, by the Governor of Enugu State, His Excellency, Sullivan Chime.

Reacting to reports of the success of the reception at Okpara Square, Enugu, Nnamani said it was a mark of strength of abilities of the Governor that such reception was pulled off with astounding success within the short time it was planned. He thanked the Governor for considering such gesture and goodwill for his colleagues in the National Assembly.

Nnamani, in extending this goodwill message to other members of the National Assembly who were equally recieved, stated that he was not surprised by the success of the exercise, which reminded him of the capabilities of the Ebeano political structure he put in place.

On the views reportedly held by some speakers on the podium of the reception, Nnamani said that he was 'surprised that a good venture as the well-cherished reception for the whole Members of the National Assembly in Enugu State' could be used for muckraking.

According to him, 'memories are short. These speakers fail to appreciate that not one person of the dignitaries, including ex-Senator Ken Nnamani, Ike Ekweremadu and the rest emerged from outside the structure I created and built. Senator Ken NNamani came from our political structure. Ike Ekweremadu was my SSG and became Senator on the platform provided by our political structure. It is not possible that I hold any view against a reception held in honour of persons I helped in bringing up politically.'

Sounding unperturbed by the unwarranted vitriolics of some of the speakers, he reminded the speakers that what should be everbody's preoccupation at the moment was to raise a high level of support for the government of Enugu State to continue the good works of the immediate past administration.

He said that Enugu State would be more inclined to a hospitable political and economic environment which would assure the growth and development of the people and their place if all hands were brought on deck.

Nnamani further urged the people to give their support to government and proffer such views which would bring about further development of the State. more.....
