The Nkanu people of Enugu East Senatorial Zone are not leaving any stone unturned in their quest to produce the next governor of Enugu State.
The zone has made its stand crystal clear based on the existing zoning system which favours them.
Yet, the people are not leaving anything to chance considering the uncertainties usually associated with politics especially in this part of the world.
In one of his interviews with EverydayNews, a former National Auditor of the PDP Barr. Ray Nnaji had warned that only the best candidate should be allowed to fly the Nkanu guber flag.
This may have informed the believed emergence of Capt. Everest Nnaji popularly known as Ondengene, as one of the leading aspirants to the throne.
EverydayNews reliably gathered that there are moves from top Nkanu stakeholders to persuade him to present himself for the Governoship race.
Our source confirmed that consultations have reached advanced stages all in an attempt to get Odengene aboard the guber train.
A philanthropist who has been of great assistance to his people, especially the indigent and downtrodden, this may be pay back time for Odengene.
Captain Evarest Edeh Nnaji was born into the family of Chief Silas Edeh Nnaji and Chief/Mrs Janet Wowo-Ogo Nnaji, of the Odengene larger family clan, Isienu Amagunze, Nkanu-East Local Government Area, Enugu State.
Through Odengene Foundation, his pet philanthropic project, he has over the years granted and maintained scholarship for thousands of indigent students, ranging from high School through to the University. The Foundation also has a unique care program for orphans and abandoned babies. The program does not believe in adoption of babies, but raises the children completely for their parents; retaining their names for their biological parents, where known. The Foundation also undertakes legal services for Awaiting Trials inmates in prisons for minor offenses.
