Kenneth Okonkwo, the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council Spokesman, has reacted to the Labour Party’s defeat in the Enugu State Governorship election to Peter Mbah of the Peoples Democratic Party.
On Wednesday night, Okonkwo bemoaned on his official Twitter handle that his Party’s mandate had been stolen, just as it had happened in the Presidential election.
He did, however, state that Edeoga will retrieve his triumph in court.
“Cowards die many times before their death – Julius Caesar. Abia’s Returning Officer refused to be intimidated and refused to announce the rigged result. At the same time, Enugu Returning Officer confessed that he was given a figure to announce by the corrupt Abuja INEC officials, and he ‘moomooishly’ announced what was given to him, which was supposed to be a Professor and somebody’s father.
“God forbid!! God save our country. They stole our presidential mandate, and now they stole our gubernatorial mandate. By the grace of God, we will recover all.
“I have received assurances from Chijioke Edeoga that he will reclaim his mandate. Evil will never triumph over good. Congratulations to the Obidients for winning Enugu State. INEC is already known as a rotten organisation worldwide with a rotten head. Their declaration is as useless as the organisation under Mahmood. In God we trust”, he posted.
Prof. Maduebibis Iwe, the Returning Officer for Enugu State for the Independent National Electoral Commission, reported PDP’s Mbah received 160,895 votes, narrowly defeating LP’s Chijioke Edeoga, who received 157 552.
The release of the Enugu State guber result made it the 26th Governor-elect announced by INEC, pending the completion of the inconclusive elections in Adamawa and Kebbi states.
