The statement reads:
” The LP party gubernatorial candidate in the 2023 general elections, Hon Chijioke Jonathan Edeoga will not be attending the ESUT Convocation ceremonies for the award of degrees and honors as planned.
Hon Chijioke Edeoga is one of the recipients of the Masters Degree in Public Administration but will not attend the event as a mark of respect to those killed by suspected Herdsmen at Ehamufu, Isiuzo Local government area and other parts of the State last week. The LP candidate will instead be at Ehamufu to attend the burial of the victims holding today same time as the convocation.
Hon Edeoga regrets the inconveniences caused by the sudden change and wishes to thank his numerous supporters who despite humongous challenges are still committed to enthrone a society that can take security of life and property for granted and hold those entrusted with the responsibility accountable.
