Enugu LG Election: Coalition rejects PDP candidate for Nsukka

Enugu LG Election: Coalition rejects PDP candidate for Nsukka
An amalgamation of civil society and so­cio-political groups in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State, under the aegis of Nsukka Demo­cratic Movement (NDM), has rejected
the candidature of Mr Patrick Omeje as the Peo­ples Democratic Party (PDP) chairmanship flag bearer, urg­ing the party to replace him.
The coalition, comprising of Independent Nsukka Sol­idary Agenda Worldwide, United Nsukka Indigenes for Good Governance, Nsukka Arise for Change, Nsukka Youths Empowerment Initi­ative, Greater Nsukka Con­gress, Alliance for Democrat­ic Governance, among others, insisted that if the PDP can­didate was not replaced, they would mobilise opposition against the party in the coun­cil, come November 4, 2017.

The NDM in a statement signed by its Coordinator, Comrade James Ezema and its Secretary, Dr Joseph Idoko, accused the candidate of intimidating and harassing Nsukka indigenes with si­ren even before the election, saying, “If he can intimidate people with convoys and siren when election has not taken place, we are not safe if he wins the election”.
The groups maintained that “Beyond doubts about his competence and academic qualification, which is cur­rently under investigation by our coalition, he has so far shown that he lacks qualities of a good leader. Worst of all, he seems not to be disposed to learning.
