Enugu Guber: I Have Evidence To Prove That I Won – Edeoga

Listen to article

The Labour Party (LP) candidate for the just-concluded governorship election in Enugu State, Chijioke Edeoga, has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of rigging the gubernatorial election.

Speaking in an interview with reporters on Sunday the former local government chairman, commissioner, and House of Representatives member claimed that evidence shows that LP won the election.

While expressing confidence in regaining his mandate, Edeoga pointed out that with the success recorded by the LP in the Presidential, National Assembly, and the State Assembly elections, it was grossly illogical to say that LP lost the governorship poll in Enugu State.

Edeoga said: ‘In the presidential election, LP recorded more than 80 percent success. Most of the votes cast in Enugu State were cast for LP. In the National Assembly elections, which went on concurrently, out of the eight House of Representatives seats, LP won seven clearly and convincingly; out of the two senatorial positions that were contested that day, LP won one convincingly, in fact, defeating the incumbent governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi with a margin of more than 50,000 votes.

‘What is on the ground is that LP won clearly two senatorial seats in Enugu State against the three that are available. LP won seven House of Representatives seats out of the eight that are available; LP won 14 House of Assembly seats out of the 24 that are available.

‘So, the award of victory to PDP (in the governorship), which INEC did working in collaboration with INEC officers in Enugu and Abuja, flies against what is evident on the ground as expressed through the number of victories that LP secured.’

The Eastern Updates reports that the Labour Party candidate has already filled his petition at the tribunal.
