Chief Eneukwu was born in Udi local government area of Enugu State. In 1993, shortly after graduating from University of Nigeria Nsukka, Eneukwu was elected as Udi LGA Party Secretary of the defunct National Republican Convention, NRC, a party in Enugu state that peopled the likes of Chief Hyde Onuaguluchi of the famous Hydro – Tech. Thereafter in 1997, after helping to form the Congress for National Consensus, CNC, he emerged the first Enugu State Chairman of the party, then, first Enugu State Chairman of All Peoples Party, APP, in 1999 and when APP merged with late Admiral Augustus Aikhomu’s UNCP and metamorphosed into ANPP, Eneukwu was once again called upon to lead the party in 2002 in Enugu state. Still under the same ANPP, he was the Chairman of all State Chairmen.
Chief Emma Eneukwu aspired to run for the National Chairman of ANPP in 2007, but backed out after the zoning permutations didn’t favour him. Regardless, he emerged as the National Publicity Secretary at the National Convention of ANPP. He also served in numerous sub- committees that shored the fortunes of ANPP.
Not surprisingly, when the merger talks between some mega parties kicked off, Eneukwu was among the ANPP delegates alongside Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, John Oyegun, Senator Sani Yerima, Senator Adamu Aliero, among others. This elevated him as a member of the Central merger Committee, with the Publicity sub- committee as his primary assignment. When the merger became successful, he was called upon to be the APC Convener in Enugu state.
When the Interim Management Committee of APC was constituted under the leadership of Chief Bisi Akande, Emma Eneukwu was the National Welfare Secretary until the 2014 APC National Convention. At the 2014 covention, he emerged the first elected National Vice Chairman, South East, and was reelected in 2018. His stint as National Vice Chairman was marked with stellar and gusto performances. In all these services to the party, Eneukwu discharged them without blemish, rather, with a high sense of responsibility and discipline.
