AS the countdown to the Presidential and NASS elections continued, Sen. Chimaroke Nnamani has embarked on ward-to-ward campaign in his Enugu-East Senatorial District, seeking support to return to the Senate.

Nnamani in a statement on Sunday, said on a ward-to-ward, Ebeano campaign train went through major roads, streets, markets and neighborhoods structures in the district, canvassing for votes.

“In a carnival-like movement, the campaign train played Ebeano jingles with sound speakers, attached to the vehicles, while supporters cheered and danced to the rhythm of the music,” Nnamani said.

He said that the ward campaign was complementing the Enugu-East Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) zonal chairman, Nnamdi Nwafor-led campaign tours going on simultaneously.

The Senator said that the train distributed customised exercise books, T-shirts and face-caps to constituents along the roads, streets, markets and neighborhood structures in Enugu North, Enugu South, Isi Uzo, Nkanu East and Nkanu West local government areas.

He said that the team listed some projects attracted by Sen. Nnamani to the constituency in the last four years.

The move according to him, is to justify why his constituents should return him to continue his quality representation and provision of more dividends of democracy.

Nnamani said that the projects included installation of all-in-one solar powered street lights in the Senatorial District, markets, parking lots, schools, hospitals, streets and roads in the local government areas.

“They also listed the construction of 154- metre drainage line and development of rural access roads for farmers in the Senatorial District, among others,” he said.

Nnamani said that he had also sponsored 3,991 female students in the Senatorial District for their West African Examination Council (WAEC) fees.

The senator said that he had also provided entrepreneurship skills acquisition and empowerment schemes for 100 unemployed women and youths, as well as deep freezers and sewing machines.

He said that he had been an advocate of gender parity and women emancipation in the Senate, adding that educated and empowered female folks would be agents for development in the country.

According to him, he has been unrelenting in the battle to eliminate all forms of discrimination, such as women’s right to inheritance, denial of access to education, under aged marriages and female genital mutilation.

Nnamani promised to consolidate and attract more dividends of democracy to the constituency, if elected again (NAN)
