Enugu Guber: I’ll Give UNN Special Attention If Elected – Edeoga

The Labour Party’s governorship candidate in Enugu State, Chijioke Edeoga, has promised to give the University of Nigeria Nsukka special attention if elected governor of the state.

Edeoga said this on Wednesday while addressing the university community ahead of the elections billed for March 18, 2023.

Edeoga an alumnus of UNN thanked them for voting for LP en masse during presidential and National Assembly elections held on Feb 25, this year.

Edeoga descried the infrastructural decay in the institution, including its Zik’s Flats, road networks and streetlights.

He said: “UNN is the fountain of the Igbo renaissance. It gave birth to many personalities that have changed the face of the world. I know the challenges of UNN. At night, most places are dark. I’ll light up the university, in conjunction with the authorities, if you vote for me.

“The state of Zik’s Flats is a disgrace. If it is redeemable, we’ll rescue the flats. UNN will receive our maximum attention if elected. I’m aware of the road problems. They will receive our attention. Some of them need expansion.”

He alleged that the ruling Peoples Democratic Party was deploying thugs to disrupt the March 18 polls, citing arrests made in Igboeze North and Isi-Uzo LGAs as evidence.

He added that the deployment of thugs in Uzo-Uwani LGA had become open, and commended the Nigerian Army, the police, DSS, and the civil defence for their prompt responses in ensuring crime-free elections in the state.
