Senator Ekweremadu has been able to build strong political structures across the State which placed him as one of the favourite politicians to take over from Governor Ugwuanyi in 2023.
Remember that Ekweremadu has been in the Senate chamber since 2003, he has been able to win the love of the people of the state with his contributions at the Senate chamber and his zeal to fight for his state.photo credit: Daily Trust
The Senator has established himself as a respected political figure to reckon with in Enugu State through his political networks across the State. This may likely make it easy for him in 2023 to fly the flag of the Peoples Democratic Party and emerge the next Governor of the State.
Another thing that may also work for Senator Ekweremadu is his political experience. Since he became Enugu West Senator in 2003, he has been able to win the love of the people which helped him to win his subsequent reelections.

As a respected politician, Ekweremadu is not new to Enugu politics, his political experience will make it easy for him to win the support of political players and power brokers in the State.
Recall that Ekweremadu had served as Deputy Senate President in the 6th, 7th, and 8th Senate, his influence and political experience may likely make it easy for him to emerge as the next Governor of Enugu State.
