Enugu: The campaign team of the Enugu State Labour Party, LP, Governorship candidate, Hon Chijioke Edeoga has disowned a certain write up, allegedly credited to their principal, describing it as “the handiwork of the ruling party (PDP), which has become jittery and apprehensive of the rising popularity of Edeoga among Ndị Enugu, especially the youths.”
A ppress release issued by George Ugwu, Spokesman,Chijioke Edeoga Governorship Campaign Organisation read as follows:
The attention of the Edeoga – Nwokeabia Campaign Organization has been drawn to a statement purportedly made by our principal, Hon Chijioke Edeoga, the Enugu State Labour Party Governorship candidate at Oji River LGA yesterday that “Enugu Youths should stop being lazy”.
Ordinarily, we would have ignored the said publication made of outright lies, but decided to respond because of the reference to our hardworking youths, whom our candidate have respect for and well thought out program to profitably engage their energy when he becomes governor after the 2023 elections.
Firstly, the LP governorship candidate, Hon Chijioke Edeoga was not at the said “event “ when such derogatory comment was made about the hardworking youths of the state and did not make the statement either by self or through a representative.
Our research has shown that the writer, Bonaventure Nwankiti is a fictitious person and therefore the write up is the figment of imagination of the person masquerading as Bonaventure, concocted to deceive the general public.
It is also worthy to note that as the 2023 election campaign kicks off, the ruling party has become more jittery and is clawing on every straw to stay relevant in the minds of the people.
We wish to however urge the public to disregard the said statement as it is entirely false and deliberately meant to portray our principal in bad light.
The distasteful statement is the handwork of detractors, who are apprehensive of the rising popularity of Edeoga among Ndị Enugu, especially the youths.
We wish to further affirm that Hon Chijioke Edeoga, has the highest regards for the youths of Enugu State and will not make jest of them. He has a well planned out program for Agriculture in the state and Youths in Agriculture, with easy to access incentives to make the sector attractive and profitable to them.
Finally, we urge all our supporters to Obidiently ignore the mischievous statement. Edeoga has great faith in the capacity of Enugu youths and could never had made such a disparaging statement.”
