Court sacks Edeoga as Labour Party candidate in Enugu
Recall that Hon. Chijioke Edeoga and Capt. Evarest Nnaji, have been in a legal tussle over who the rightful governorship candidate of the Labour Party is since both of them exited the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, after the May 25, 2022 primary election.
The judgement was earlier scheduled to be read on November 2, 2022, but adjourned to November 9, 2022.
