The candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Joseph Ewuga, has vowed to defeat the incumbent Governor, Abdullahi Sule, at the governorship election in Nasarawa state, North-Central Nigeria.
Ewuga made this known while addressing a large crowd that hosted him in Akwanga, put together by Community-based Awareness And Development Network For Nasarawa Youths.


Mr. Joseph Ewuga, the Labour Party’s gubernatorial Candidate for 2023 Elections.


He said he was ready to replicate the incident of the 2011 election when an incumbent seeking re-election lost to the opposition candidate at the polls in the state.
Well, as far as Nasarawa state is concerned, the precedence we have here was that an incumbent governor lost the election in Nasarawa state in 2011.
“If it happens again, it is not an exception. It is the right thing to do.
“As long as the particular person that is elected into an office has not done well, perhaps people that make choices will choose who will go for them.
“They would not want a repeat of failure.
“It is a natural thing. Forget about the money that is being spent by anybody. If people know what they want to do, they will do exactly what they want to do.
“My appeal to the electorate is for the electorate to start to look at candidates now from the point of view of their antecedents, from the point of view of what they have done in the past, from the point of view of who they are, what they have been able to do in the society at large.
“On our own, we are not buying the electorate.
“We appeal to the conscience of the electorate for them to choose us and some other persons that are in the race.
“Don’t vote for people based on their religion or what they have but based on what they can offer,” said Ewuga.
The LP governorship candidate encouraged the people to sustain their belief in the party, adding that even the incumbent governor was afraid of the growing strength of the party.
In their separate speeches, the state coordinator of the Community-based Awareness And Development Network For Nasarawa Youths, Sam Akwashiki and Reginald Onoha, the state coordinator of Igbos and Chairman, Multinational Ethnic Groups in Nasarawa state, said the youths were patiently waiting to vote for Ewuga and all the LP governorship candidates in next year’s elections.
They promised to take the message of the Labour Party to every community of the state.
