Nnah who was accompanied by his friend and business partner, Mr. Jarret Ekehson, explained the motive behind his generous gesture.
He said: “I’m here to present these campaign materials in solidary to your candidacy in retrospect to the recognition done on us by Obong Ekere.”
He explained further that that on receiving the information that Nsima Ekere had nominated an Oruk Anam son with proven integrity as a running mate, he decided to come all the way from Lagos to affirm his full support for the duo as well as identify with the progress that is about to manifest in the state in the next couple of months.
Attai, an indigene of Oruk Anam, was overwhelmed by Mr. Nnah’s gesture.
