With barely three months to general election, Enugu state has been enjoying the support and domination of rhe people’s Democratic Party (PDP). but the emergence of Peter Obi of Labour Party and APC governorship candidate Chief Uche NNAJI, seem would change the political narrative in the state.

The political consciousness this time in Enugu and the South East makes it difficult for anyone to unilaterally project that a party will dominate the coming election.
