Obi, Edeoga greatest casualties of 2023 electoral fraud —Labour Party

 


The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Barrister Julius Abure, has said the party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, Peter Obi, and Enugu State governorship candidate, Chijioke Edeoga, were the two biggest casualties of Nigeria’s flawed Electoral Act.

 

He said this while receiving in the audience the Enugu State governorship candidate of the party in the 2023 elections, Chijioke Edeoga, at the party’s national secretariat, Abuja, yesterday.

 

Abure also announced Edeoga’s appointment into the team of the party’s committee that would work for the reformation of the nation’s Electoral Act.“

 

Abure said: “It is very clear that they robbed us of that election. It was done in collusion with INEC officials and PDP government in Enugu State.

 

“The whole world is aware of it. Even before you spoke about electoral reforms the party has decided since last year that we are going to pursue electoral reforms in Nigeria. And what happened to us in the general election will never happen to us again.

 

“We believe that the starting point is to begin early enough with the pursuit of electoral reform because we saw all the antics that played out between the national assembly and the presidency in the past electoral reform.

 

“As I speak with you, we are already constituting the committee that will give us the framework for the review. We also decided that the Labour Party will not be a spectator and that we will be the drivers of that process.

 

He argued that the only people who could pursue electoral reforms were victims of the process.

 

“I have made it clear that the major victim of the 2023 general election is the Labour Party. And therefore we cannot be seen to take back seat in the pursuit of electoral reform and in defence of our votes.”
