Nsuka turns against Edeoga as Comr. Iyere’s speech electrifies voters (video)
Popular humanitarian activist, Comrade Kennedy Iyere, has moved the students of University of Nigeria, Nsuka (UNN) with touching speech and demonstrations against Barr. Chijoke Edeoga, the 2023 gubernatorial candidate of Labour Party in Enugu State.
Iyere, who is widely credited for promoting Mr Peter Obi into a national phenomenon, has endorsed Edeoga’s rival, Barr. Peter Mbah, the governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party in the State.
Addressing crowd of UNN students on Thursday, the fiery activist insisted that Mbah is the best candidate who represents the competence, character and capacity Peter Obi sings about.
“Barr. Peter Mbah has capacity, he has character; he is competent. He is the only candidate who can put Enugu State on world map once he becomes the governor.
“Mbah built Pinnacle Oil and Gas, one of the largest oil firm in Africa. Even as fuel pump price across Nigeria is over N300, Pinnacle Oil still sells at N180 per liter.
“But Barr. Chijoke Edeoga is the opposite; he is opposite of all Peter Obi stands for. He has no legacy.
“Edeoga has been in active politics since 1997. He is journalist, but he failed there. Edeoga is a barrister, a profession he also failed at. Everything he touches fails.
Edeoga had been riding on the violent waves of the Obidient movement, intimidating his major gubernatorial contenders before Iyere collapsed Obi’s coalitions under the LP governorship candidate.
Comrade Iyere also gave N400,000 each to two physically challenged students who attended the event.
