Chairman of the Labour Party (LP) in Enugu State, Casmir Agbo, has disclosed that the party is waiting for directives from its headquarters to conduct a fresh gubernatorial primary.
Agbo made this known on Monday in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu.
Recall that an Abuja Federal High Court had ordered a fresh gubernatorial primary in Enugu State. This was sequel to a suit brought by Mr Everest Nnaji challenging the emergence of Mr Chijioke Edeoga as the LP candidate.
“We are waiting for directives from our national office to conduct a fresh primary as ordered by the Court,” he said.
Agbo, a Lawyer, said the party’s legal team is studying the judgment “and as soon as we receive the directive we will move on.”
He asked Labour Party faithful in the state to remain focused and calm, as the party is poised to take the state in the forthcoming 2023 election.
