Governor Sullivan Chime to resign come 2015 so as to contest for senate



Enugu State Governor, Sullivan chime has
been quoted to have said that he would resign as
governor even if the constitution was amended beyond
2015 to contest for the senate position of Enugu West
under the platform of People’s Democratic Party in the
The governor allegedly made the assertion during a
courtesy visit of members of Enugu Unity forum, a non
political organization at the government house, Enugu,
saying that he wants to teach the serving national
assembly members how to wind down, since they could
not do that on their own.
The governor allegedly received the Forum behind
closed doors at the government house where he
declared to run for the senatorial position of Enugu
West, since the earlier agreement in the state of those
that have served for two terms or more at the national
and state assemblies to step aside for new entrants did
not go down with some of them.
According to him, “since a good number of them were
allegedly agitating and indirectly resisting the earlier
accord at the state PDP caucus, I want to teach them
how to wind down, even if it means dropping the
governorship, I can risk it to contest the senatorial
position”, he explained.
The governor allegedly expressed surprised that the
members of the national assembly can forget so soon a
written agreement that nobody should go beyond two
terms in the national and state assemblies.
Since some of them were charting another dimensions
to the agreement, and could not wind down on their
own, I will teach them how to wind down by running for
the senatorial position of Enugu West, even if the
constitution was amended beyond 2015, I will resign as
Enugu State governor to contest for the 2015 Enugu
West Senatorial position, he noted.
Earlier the national president, Enugu Unity Forum,
Mr. Tahill Ochi, expressed satisfaction with chime for
maintaining his earlier promise of shifting the 2015
Enugu guber to Enugu North Senatorial Zone.
Mr. Ochi applauded Chime on infrastructural
development, education, peace and security in the state,
explaining that the state has enjoyed a clear democratic
transformation of the governor’s four point agenda,
than what was obtained in the past administrations in
the state.
In a vote of thanks at the parley the national secretary,
Dr. Chuka Ezema who later briefed Vanguard
exclusively, noted that the life achievement of Chime in
Enugu State was peace and security which clearly
brings back memories of the state as a Coal City in
the South-East and South-South geo-political zones
in the country.
Dr. Ezema said that the stand point of the governor
on Enugu North Senatorial zone to produce the PDP
candidate for 2015 was a manifestation of honesty of
the state PDP caucus meeting for the governed.
He explained, that “the Enugu Unity Forum is a non
political organization with political interest and would
use template formular to determine a credible candidate
for Enugu North 2015 guber project”, he said.
