There are strong indications that the Senator representing Owerri zone, Senator Samuel Anyanwu may join the Imo governorship contest any moment from now.
Anyanwu represents Owerri zone in the senate and heads the senate committee on Public petitions, Ethics and Privileges. He had announced his intention to run for a second term to the senate last year but certain political developments may have influenced a possible change of mind.
The Senator is yet to officially announce his latest ambition but close sources believe he is still consulting and may make his ambition known later.
Signs that the senator may go for a higher political office manifested last December when more than 15 senators including Senate President, Bukola Saraki, some members of the House of Representatives, State Governors including Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State attended a civic reception organized in his honour by his kinsmen at Iho in Ikeduru Local Government Area.
Sources close to the senator are optimistic that the senator will announce his governorship ambition after concluding extensive consultations . A post on the facebook wall of the senator’s media aide, Mr. Kelechi Eke today has further increased suspicions on the intention of the senator to run for Imo governorship.
Mr. Eke wrote “ We demanded and prayed for it. Behold our prayer is answered. Owerri zone best offer to Imo State. The consensus option across political, zonal and religious divides. Tested, trusted, accepted, experienced, loved and grassroot game changer”
