The Eastern Union (EU), a so­cio-political pressure group of the people of the Old Eastern Region, has pledged to deliver 25 million votes to Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election.

Hon. Charles Anike, the Eastern Union (EU) Nation­al President, in a statement on Saturday, said the organ­isation would do everything possible to ensure that Peter Obi and the Labour Party (LP) secure a comfortable victory in the coming ‘residential election.

Anike stated that Eastern Union, which was formed since 2006 by the peoples of Old Eastern Region of Nige­ria, has formidable grassroots structures in the South-East and South-South geo-political zones.

He informed that the EU has over the years, spread and maintained a strong presence across the country, especially in all the states of Southern Nigeria and some states in the North, especially in the Mid­dle Belt Region.

According to him, “The EU has also maintained a strong leading voice on national is­sues. We have also maintained friendly relationships with fellow Nigerians of all walks of life.

“This has enabled us to net­work and convince millions of our friends and associates in our different locations to see the need to put Nigeria first in our quest to change the pres­ent leadership of the country.

“Nigeria needs a capable leadership that will restore hope for every Nigerian cit­izen. The country has been passing through several years of misrule and its cit­izens have been experienc­ing extreme hardship and disasters, especially under the present All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government.

“The country deserves a leader of Obi’s standing that can bring a fast healing and restoration on the land. This is why we have taken it upon ourselves without any sup­port, mobilising Nigerians across the country to ensure Obi’s victory at the presiden­tial election.

“Every of the EU State Co­ordinator has been mandated to make sure they deliver at least one million votes for Obi in their respective states. We have used the EU platform to set up campaign cells in the wards of every state where the EU exists.

“We are appealing to Nige­rians of all walks of life not to miss this God-given opportu­nity to take back our country for any reason.

“We must not fall prey again to the hands of the evil genius politicians, who in many ways have contributed and are still contributing to our woes as a nation, because they are already preparing their arsenals to launch their deceitful and fake campaign promises.

“We must continue to re­mind ourselves that the pres­ent APC government and the previous PDP leadership laid the foundation for our present sufferings. Both governments over the years deliberately sustained the policy of un­employment of the Nigerian youths.” (Sunday Independent)
