Edeoga told his audience that his emergence as Labour Party guber candidate in Enugu State was as a result of pressures from well meaning people of the State, as well as the Presidential candidate of the party, Mr. Peter Obi.

According to him, "I'm into the race for service. After the PDP primary election, I decided to rest but pressures kept coming from all quarters in Enugu State, women, youths, elders.

"Even Our Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi called me on the phone to come and contest; he said he wants me to fly the party's flag. I was hesitant until it got to a point that I had no choice but to answer the call."
