INEC List: PDP Rep denies running on Labour Party ticket in 2023
Toby Okechukwu (PDP-Enugu) has faulted his inclusion on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) list for the 2023 poll as the Labour Party’s candidate for Aninri/Awgu/Oji River Federal Constituency.
Mr Okechukwu, also the deputy minority leader of the House of Representatives, said this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.
“My attention has been drawn to the list of candidates for the 2023 general election released by INEC, wherein my name was published as the Labour Party Candidate for Aninri/Awgu/Oji River Federal Constituency, Enugu State.
“I wish to state that I will not be contesting as the candidate of the Labour Party or any other party in the said election. I remain a member of the PDP,” he said.
Mr Okechukwu said his position on the matter had since been conveyed to the national chairman of the Labour Party.
Hours ago, INEC released the final list of candidates for the 2023 general elections. The list consisted of 3,875 male and 381 female candidates for the presidential and federal parliamentary polls.
