2023 Governorship Poll: LP vows to resist attempt to upturn its ‘governorship victory’ in Abia, Enugu


THE Labour Party (LP) chairman, Julius Abure, has vowed to resist what he called attempts by the governors of Abia and Enugu states to thwart the outcome of the elections in the two states, which he said were in favour of the LP.

Abure made this known in a statement he personally signed today and obtained.

Abure claimed that “INEC staff are held hostage at Obingwa Local Govt by Governor Ikpeazu and his cohorts to rewrite the results already compiled by INEC officials despite an order from the election body asking their staff to head to Umuahia to collate results for the election, which is in favour of Labour’s Alex Otti.”

He alleged that what the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had been found doing was not different from “the criminality orchestrated against our presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, during the February 25 presidential election.”

The LP chairman called on the Inspector-General of Police to intervene and ensure the transfer of all electoral materials to Umuahia where he believed the sanctity of the election and the safety of the officials in charge can be guaranteed.

He threatened that if this was not addressed, LP would be left with no choice than to mobilise “Obidients” all over the country to take over the streets across the length and breadth of the country.
