Enugu East Senator, Dr Chimaroke Nnamani, has stated that there is no cause for alarm over call to postpone the Enugu East Senatorial District election following the gruesome murder of Labour Party (LP) Senatorial candidate, Mr Oyibo Chukwu and five others.
Senator Nnamani, in a statement, asserted, “We welcome any opportunity for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the Enugu East senatorial election.
“While we strongly condemn the senseless killing of the LP senatorial candidate and others by yet-to-be-identified gunmen, I deeply sympathize with all the bereaved and urge the security operatives to fish out the perpetrators.
“Any suggestion that the deceased was favoured to win the election is ridiculous, to say the least.
“It is only a party that thrives on deception and social media stunts that would claim it was about defeating a sitting senator and past two-term governor of the State.
“Indeed, the postponement will allow for a fair contest and for peace to reign in the area.”
