Chijioke Edeoga, Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Enugu State has boasted that he is more experienced than Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the party.
Edeoga who spoke during a radio programme on Energy FM in Enugu, said he joined public service in the country long before Obi.
The candidate said he rose to prominence in 1992 when he served as chief press secretary to Okwesilieze Nwodo, a former governor of the state, and was elected council chairman in 1997.
“Peter Obi had not entered public service in 1997. I have been in public service since 1992 on a continuous basis. I was chief press secretary. By 1997, I was elected council chairman. I was elected on my own strength. I went to the house of representatives in 1999,” Edeoga said.
“I am not trying to take away anything from Peter Obi, but was Peter Obi in PDP when I became the person to beat?”
