The Member Representing Aninri/Awgu/ Oji River Federal Constituency in Enugu State, Hon Toby Okechukwu has rejected the Labour party candidacy for the 2023 general election.

In a statement, the lawmaker wrote;
"My attention has been drawn to the list of candidates for the 2023 general election released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on 20th September 2022 wherein my name was published as the Labour Party Candidate for Aninri/Awgu/Oji River Federal Constituency, Enugu State.

"I wish to state that I will not be contesting as the candidate of the Labour Party or any other party in the said election. I remain a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.

"Meanwhile, my position on this matter had since been conveyed to the National Chairman of the Labour Party in my  letter dated 19th July 2022.

"I deeply appreciate and can never take for granted the overwhelming goodwill of my leaders, constituents and their wish for me to be on the ballot in the 2023 general election. 

"I very much understand the pains my decision is bound to cause them. However, I believe and wish to reassure them that as a constituent, I will continue to do my best and be of utmost service to them in or out of public office.
"While thanking them for their immense support and love through the years, I am supremely confident that God will remain the ultimate compass in our affairs", the lawmaker concluded.
