The former minister also commended Governor Sullivan Chime and the senator representing Enugu East, Gill Nnaji for their giant strides in the state in terms of infrastructure development. He said that Chime had done a lot, changing the landscape of Enugu, and had gone further to lay good foundation for the development of all sectors of the economy. He described Senator Nnaji as one of the best senators from the zone that had attracted a lot to the zone, including the international ICT University among other things.

Others who spoke at the rally include Senator Nnaji; the House of Representative candidate Chukwuemeka Ujam and Paul Nnaji Ofor, who would be going for the House of Representatives on the platform of PDP.
