  1. For 16 years, people like Ekweremadu and his cronies have seized Enugu state for themselves looting and sharing the collective resources and taking all the federal appointments accrued to the state. At some point, they even refused people from joining the PDP thereby making the party an exclusive club for selected few. He grabbed the Igwe of his place for his dad (now Late), made his brother LG chairman two times and when he finished, he forced him on the people as house of assembly member in Enugu state after forcing the then incumbent (Abel Chukwu) to resign. Very selfish man. Ekweremadu has played god in Enugu West for long. This is the main reason I like this wind of change so that people like Ekweremadu and his cronies can be blown out with time so that we can breathe in Enugu .He is going back to the senate after imposing himself again for the 4th time but let him be rest assured that he is going there now as a floor member (without the paraphernalia of office he has been using to intimidate people) and this will be the beginning of his political oblivion.
