Hon Chijioke Edeoga represents what Peter Obi is at the federal level, Comrade Igwebuke Ugwu, a youth leader in Enugu State, said Sunday.
Edeoga is the governorship candidate of the Labour Party in the state while Mr Obi is the party’s presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Ugwu said, “Edeoga is a simple man. He is humble. Edeoga is after peace. We are looking towards the next eight years in Enugu State.
“Ex-Gov Sullivan Chime is a model in the state. His administration saved Nsukka people through that road that passes through Enugu-Ugwuogo-Opi-Nsukka. Without that road, Nsukka would have been cut off.
“We thought that the road should have been dualised. So we are looking for such governor in the state that can have the courage to initiate such projects.”
He advised youths to avoid thuggery in the forthcoming general elections.
Quoting him, “Collect their money and vote according to your conscience because that money they use to bribe you is our collective wealth.
“They stole it to buy us during elections, and return us to ever suffering. It won’t happen this time around.
“Wherever we belong or reside, our best option is to belong to Labour Party. We can’t go back to the dark years again. It is now forward ever.”
