A spokesperson of the Labour Party’s presidential campaign, Kenneth Okonkwo has charged the people of Enugu State to vote for the governorship candidate of the party, Chijioke Edeoga.
Okonkwo made this call in a post on his Twitter account, urging the people of the state to also support other candidates of the party.
He, however, warned Edeoga that he would be voted out if he fails the people of the state.
Okonkwo wrote, “moment of truth in Enugu state. I come to the people of Enugu State in peace. I owe you the truth as your Servant. Let me admit that there is no Saint among all the candidates for Governor in Enugu State. None of them can exonerate himself from the ignoble past of the negative influence of the Ebeano politics in Enugu State.
“Ebeano is all about power and money. They are producers of death and corruption. After witnessing how PDP organised its gubernatorial primary in Enugu and saw how the ticket was bought and sold to the highest bidder
“I remembered how our principal Peter Obi witnessed the same thing in PDP national convention and refused to participate in it but rather left for Labour Party for a new Nigeria. After also seeing how PDP as a party treated the South-East which gave them 100% support for 20 years but turned round when they should support the presidential aspiration of South-East to tell us that we are not qualified to be President or Vice President in Nigeria, I felt that no reasonable person from the South-East should ever support anything PDP until such insult is remedied.
“We cannot empower a party that calls us nobodies. APGA in South-East is even more dangerous for the South-East than PDP because Gov Soludo is the leader of APGA now. You can imagine empowering a party in Enugu which doesn’t believe that a person from the South-East should be President of Nigeria. The cock of APGA has been killed by unknown gunmen in the South-East. This will not help us realise our presidential mandate given to Peter Obi.
“The Labour Party is the only pathway for the realisation of the presidential mandate given to Peter Obi. Chijioke Edeoga made a wise decision by coming under the canopy of this new trend to a new Nigeria. He has a mentor in Peter Obi that will help shape him in line with the needed character, capacity and competence in any area he needs it.
“I am endorsing Chijioke Edeoga looking at the future of our people not the past. PDP and APGA have failed us. Time to try a new direction has come. Vote Chijioke Edeoga of the Labour Party for a new Enugu State. We will vote him out in four years if he fails us. God bless NdiEnugu. Kenneth Okonkwo Presidential Spokesperson Labour Party Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council”
