Just In; Ebonyi Labour Party Authentic Guber Candidate Revealed

The Spokesman to Arc. Dr. Edward Nkwegu, Gubernatorial Candidate, Labour Party, Ebonyi State, Chief Roy Ukwuoma, have again reiterated that his principal, Edward Nkwegu remains the authentic gubernatorial candidate for Labour Party in Ebonyi.

Ukwuoma, in a statement made available to newsmen in Abakaliki revealed that Dr Edward Nkwegu, was validly nominated as the Gubernatorial candidate of the party following the withdrawal of Mr Splendor Oko Eze from the race.

His statement reads; "It has become imperative to clarify issues bordering on the governorship Candidate of Labour Party in Ebonyi State in the face of some fake news being peddled by some disgruntled self-acclaimed journalists, particularly one Igiri Innocent and Onwe, O. D. O (Polymath).

"It would be recalled that Arc. (Dr.) Edward Nkwegu became the validly nominated gubernatorial candidate of Labour Party in Ebonyi State on the 2nd of  August, 2022 following the withdrawal of Splendor Oko Eze. As a result, substitution primary was conducted by the party. The whole process was superintended by the party hierarchy and members  and duly monitored by INEC. Due process was entirely followed .

"It is an utter aberration and mere shadow chasing that anyone would rely on the court to do what is constitutionally the prerogative of a political party as enshrined in the electoral act section 33. Twice, enemies of our great party have dragged this harmless gentleman EDON to court; all to no avail. Each time the matters remained appealed. Under the law, it is wrong for anyone else to claim candidacy of the party for gubernatorial race as the status-quo is being maintained.

"Mr. Splendor Oko Eze voluntarily withdrew and had the intention of ceding the position to his desired candidate (Fidelis Nwankwo) which the party faulted and desired to look for a candidate that can win election for her. And that Candidate is Arc. (Dr.) Edward Nkwegu.

"Therefore, all the dust/noise about Splendor Oko Eze as the supposed Ebonyi State Labour Party Guber Candidate for the 2023 general elections is spurious, frivolous, unfounded and indeed holds no water. This is still the evil machination of detractors and enemies of progress.

"More so, the
authors of this fake news (Igiri Innocent and Onwe O. D. O Polymath) are mere jobbers who go cap in hand for brown envelope; all in the name of journalism.

"Therefore, the Labour Party faithful as well as the general public should discountenance the said publications milling about in the social media and/or any other print or electronic media.

"My Principal, the in-coming governor of  Ebonyi State (by the grace of God) Arc. Edward Nkwegu* is not moved by the tantrums coming from Engr. Fidelis Nwankwo quarters as he (Nwankwo) does not possess Labour party Membership card and is therefore not a member of the Party.

"Arc. (Dr.) Edward Nkwegu has come to stay and remains the one and only candidate of Labour Party for the gubernatorial election come 2023.

"Let the hearts of all  OBIDIENTS and indeed all Ebonyians not be troubled. EDON means well for all Ebonyians and is ready to run an all inclusive government with the milk of human kindness God  bestowed him with. A government with human face", his statement ended.
