The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Enugu State, Dr. Peter Ndubuisi Mbah, has condemned, in totality, the dastardly “attacks on the campaign trails of the Labour Party, Peoples Democratic Party, and All Progressives Congress” in the state which occurred in the night of Wednesday, February 22, 2023, leaving scores dead, including the Labour Party senatorial candidate for Enugu East senatorial zone.
This was contained in a statement signed by him and made available to newsmen in Enugu titled ATTACKS ON ENUGU CAMPAIGN TRAILS SAVAGE AND CONDEMNABLE.
Expressing shock and extending sympathies to the families of the victims, the governorship hopeful charged security agencies to fish out the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
His statement reads in full: “I received with shock and a deep sense of loss the reports of the Wednesday, February 22, 2023 attacks on the campaign trails of the Labour Party, Peoples Democratic Party, and All Progressives Congress in parts of our state, which resulted in loss of lives, including that of the candidate of the Labour Party for Enugu East Senatorial District, Oyibo Chukwu, some party supporters and a driver in the campaign trail of the PDP candidate for Enugu North/Enugu South Federal Constituency, Hon. Offor Chukwuegbo.
“These dastardly acts stand condemned in totality. They are senseless, savage, and do not represent who we are as Ndigbo and Ndi Enugu. This is a lethal shot at the soul of our state and democracy. Therefore, it must not go unresolved and unpunished.
“I call on the security agencies to take immediate steps to investigate the incidents with a view to bringing the culprits to book. I urge them to provide an enabling environment for our people to exercise their franchise without fear of molestation.
“Meanwhile, my heart goes out to the families of the deceased as well as the affected political parties. I convey heartfelt condolences to the family of Oyibo Chukwu and the Enugu State chapter of the Labour Party. They will continue to be in our prayers for the inner strength to pull through these trying times and for the peaceful repose of the souls of our departed brethren”.
DR. PETER MBAH
Governorship candidate of the PDP, Enugu State
