By Thomas Okoye
The Labour Party, Tuesday, said Hon Chijioke Edeoga is its gubernatorial candidate in Enugu State.
The state publicity secretary of the party, Mr Ibuchukwu Ezike, stated this in a release made available to newsmen.
He said the clarification became necessary in view of conflicting reports on who the party’s guber candidate in the state is.
According to him, “Mr Chijioke Edeoga is the undisputable gubernatorial candidate of Labour Party in Enugu State.
“Last week, we issued a press release where we clarified that Mr Chijioke Edeoga is the gubernatorial standard-bearer of the Labour Party in Enugu State.
“However, since three days ago or so, our numerous members and supporters have continued making calls to find out if Edeoga has actually been replaced as the Labour Party candidate.
“This followed stinking rumours making the rounds in the Coal City State that a certain politician has replaced Edeoga as the only and authentic candidate of our party.”
