A candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the 2023 general elections, Harrison Gwamnishu, has declared that he is currently in financial mess.
Gwamnishu, who contested to become a member of the Delta State House of Assembly, said he was in serious debt and no longer mentally stable.
Gwamnishu, a self-acclaimed human rights activist, was defeated in the March 18 election.
According to him, some of his property, including one of his cars, has been sold as he attempts to pay the debt.
He would not be continuing as the head of a human rights team under him until he resolved the issue.
“Just to inform you all that I’m in serious DEBT and I’m no longer mentally stable, reasons for my recent post…
“I didn’t defraud anyone. My business went bad as this can be verified. Some of my friends gave me loans during my election.
“I have made an effort in paying by selling my car gifted to me and also sold some of my property to pay off this debt. I have given them a date and failed as I have no other possible solution to pay this debt,” he said.
He said that sleep has gone far from him, while most of his friends have abandoned him.
He said his father is currently suffering from the shock from the situation as some of the people he is indebted to had gone to his parents to threaten them.
“Life happened to me and I pray that I can come out of it soonest,” he wrote on Facebook.
