The senatorial ambition of Senator Uche Ekwunife, is under threat as
some communities in Anambra Central Senatorial Zone have rejected her return to the Senate.

The communities include Akwu Ukwu in Idemili South and Nnokwa in Idemili North among others.

The communities said they don’t want her representation again, saying the person they wanted was Senator Victor Umeh.

Ekwunife is contesting the Anambra Central senatorial election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, while Umeh is contesting on the platform of the Labour Party, LP.
However, during some of her campaigns, the communities dismantled her campaign structures and drove her away from their places.

It was gathered that the angry constituents were ready to unleash their anger on her save for her security details that stopped them.

A source said, “it has not been easy for Uche Ekwunife in her campaigns. The people of Anambra Central have truly rejected her.

“She ran for her dear life in some of the communities, including Akwu Ukwu and Nnokwa among others.

“Let me tell you the truth, our people are disenchanted with Ekwunife. She’s not representing us well, they’re only interested in their own well-being and that is why our people have decided to vote for Victor Umeh (Ohamadike) on that Election Day.

“Again, they have continued to accuse Ekwunife of being selfish and arrogant. She has tried her best, she should go and rest and allow Umeh to go for us”
