Enugu Labour Party Candidate, Edeoga Vowed To Challenge Governorship Election Outcome –Party Spokesman, Okonkwo

he Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Enugu State, Chijioke Edeoga, has vowed to challenge the outcome of Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

One of the spokespersons for Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council, Kenneth Okonkwo, who made this known described the outcome of the election as a stolen mandate.

According to Okonkwo, Edeoga assured him that he will challenge the election result in court.

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Peter Mbah was on Wednesday declared the winner of the poll by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) after the results of the controversial Nkanu East Local Government Area were collated.

INEC on Monday suspended the collation of results and declaration of the winner of the poll following allegations of over-voting and results manipulation in Nkanu East and Nsukka local government areas of the state.

Reacting to the outcome of the election, Okonkwo lamented that the presidential mandate was stolen from the Labour Party on February 25 and March 18 governorship elections in the state.

Okonkwo, who blamed the Enugu State Returning Officer for the Labour Party’s loss of the governorship election in the state, said, “Cowards die many times before their death – Julius Caesar. Abia Returning Officer rejected to be intimidated and refused to announce rigged results.

“While Enugu Returning Officer confessed that he was given a figure to announce by the corrupt Abuja INEC officials and he moomooishly announced what was given to him, and this is supposed to be a Professor and somebody’s father. God forbid!! God save our country.

“They stole our presidential mandate and now they stole our gubernatorial mandate. By the grace of God, we will recover all. I have received assurances from Chijioke Edeoga that he will reclaim his mandate. Evil will never triumph over good.

“Congratulations to the Obidients for winning Enugu State. INEC is already known as a rotten organisation worldwide with a rotten head. Their declaration is as useless as the organisation under Mahmood. In God we trust.”
