How I Bonded So Well With Obi – Edeoga

Listen to article

The Governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the March 18 election in Enugu State, Chijioke Edeoga, has denied ever having any disagreement whatsoever with the Presidential candidate of his party, Mr. Peter Obi contrary to speculations in some quarters. 

Edeoga pointed out that rather, he and the former Anambra State Governor are bonded, not just because they belong to the same political party, but more by their commitment to transparency, honesty, and corruption-free lifestyles.

He claims that both of them subscribe to the premise that character, competence, capacity, and devotion to the objectives of people-oriented leadership must define leadership.

Edeoga, who was responding to some pernicious news reports on social media that claimed he made specific remarks about Mr. Peter Obi at a meeting held at his home, vehemently denied that such a meeting ever occurred.

He declared that he and Obi were presently preoccupied by efforts to reclaim their mandates. And for who believe that investing in diversionary pernicious and mendacious propaganda is their own means of legitimizing their flawed emergence as leaders of the people, he said,  ‘we can only wish them the kind of luck they deserve.’

Edeoga stated these in a statement he personally signed, titled: ‘Intentional mendacious efforts to stoke division in the Labour Party family, and create an atmosphere of mistrust between Peter Obi and myself.’

He said such baseless publication was a part of the desperate, yet vain efforts of agents of destabilisation that have been unleashed to attack and impugn the integrity of the Labour Party and its leaders across the country.

He said: “Ever since the unfortunate outcome of the elections, both Peter Obi and I, in full agreement with our great party, have gone to court, expecting to get justice, not just for ourselves as candidates in the election, but for Nigerians who voted for us, and who see us as emblematic of the change they have longed to experience.

‘We are aware that, having challenged the integrity of what they would want to regard as their victory at the polls, the people who have clearly murdered sleep by their mindless usurpation of the mandate of the people, have found preoccupation in manufacturing and spreading all manner of tasteless, asinine falsehoods against the opposition, all in futile efforts to appear good and legitimize their contrived victories.
