Ebonyi LP Guber Candidate, EDON Is Ready to Take Over Ebonyi Leadership In 2023 - Spokesman

By Our Reporter, Abakaliki

The gubernatorial candidate of Labour Party in Ebonyi state for the 2023 election, Architect Edward Nkwegu (EDON) has debunked rumors making the rounds on social media that he has stepped down his gubernatorial ambition for Engineer Fidelis Nwankwo, stressing that such information in its entirety, is false, mischievous and misleading and urged the general public and his supporters  not to be distracted by such fake news, but should rather redouble their efforts as he and the party is prepared to take over the leadership of Ebonyi state come 2023.

In a statement from the gubernatorial candidate spokesman, Mr Roy Ukwuoma, and made available to journalist in Abakaliki, reads; "The office of the gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party Ebonyi State Arc. Dr. Edward Nkwegu (EDON) wishes to inform the general public to disregard the purported step-down of his political ambition for Engineer Fidelis Nwankwo as published on some social media platforms".

The statement reads further, "the information is not only false but also mischievous, unfounded and calculated attempt by the enemies of the Labour Party in Ebonyi State to distract the well-structured plans of Dr. Edward Nkwegu to win next year’s governorship election.

"For purpose of clarity, he has not stepped down for anybody as circulated on the social media.Dr. Nkwegu participated in substitution primaries and won the election and remains the substantive Governorship candidate of the party as evidenced in his receipt of a certificate of return from the national leadership of the party.

"The author of the publication, one Mr. Igiri Innocent is a political jobber constituting a nuisance to the political orderliness thereby lining up his pockets through illegal means".

His statement noted further that Engineer Fidelis Nwankwo is not a member of labour party and never participated in the activities of the party, wondering why the party's candidate will be stepping down for a non-party member.

"Engineer Fidelis Nwankwo whom he is campaigning for is not a member of Labour party and has no party membership card and as such has never participated in  Labour party activities let alone the primary.

 "It is important to note that the so-called south East Elders Forum was purportedly formulated for this dubious act of maligning our principal and misleading the general Public.

"Therefore, the general public should discountenance the publication as it holds no water. 

"EDON (Our candidate) is still in the race and ready to take over the leadership of Ebonyi State come 2023".
