Labour Party has started its campaign in a bid to take charge of the governorship of the state in 2023, and they have promised to create wealth and numerous jobs for the youth and satellite towns across the state.

This campaign was hosted by the Enugu West Senatorial District, and they did witness a large turnout of party members and supporters.

Speaking in the rally, the governorship candidate of the party in the state, Chijioke Edeoga commended the people of Enugu West for their show of affection as manifested in their massive turn-out.

He stated that what prompted him to pick a running mate from the zone was his love and desire to bring Enugu West to the scheme.

The Labour Party candidate promised that if he wins, Enugu State will among other things be primarily focused on the following; the creation of jobs, the creation of wealth, provision of infrastructure such as roads, electricity and water, as well as the creation of satellite towns.

He maintained that jobs as well as wealth will be created by investing strongly in agriculture and the agricultural value chain as well as exploring technology, he also added that, his administration will also leverage on the development of sport and entertainment to help youth develop their talents and become gainfully employed.

“Technical and entrepreneurial skills will be provided to the youths to enable them to become employers, adding that an idle mind is the devil’s workshop.”

“The youths need to be properly engaged. We shall engage them in agriculture, we shall engage them in sports, we shall engage them in the entertainment industry, we shall engage them in technology, skills, etc.”

“Under my watch, all hands shall be on deck. Together, we shall create the Enugu State of our dream,” Edeoga assured.

Dr. John Nwokeabia who is the chieftain of the party and also hails from the zone said that the massive turn out of people of the zone is an indication of their disenchantment with the ruling party, PDP in the state.

Dr. John mentioned that PDP is synonymous with lies, deceits, impunity, and arrogance; he also added that the people of Enugu West have turned their back on them and have taken a decision to move ahead with the youth and the rest of Nigerians through the Labour Party.

The deputy governorship candidate mentioned the PDP falling the people of Enugu State, and that “Yes, we (people of Enugu) did trust them”, saying that it is now time to remove the party from the state.

Dr. John described as shameful, and what he called “the abysmal performance of the PDP administration”

“Your Excellency, the Governor of Enugu State come May 2023, Enugu West Senatorial District has resolved to give you total support. PDP has failed us woefully and our only alternative now is the Labour Party.”

“We will not take this opportunity for granted; we have decided to grab it with two hands.

“Together with you, we shall move Enugu State forward,” he pledged.
