Peter Mbah

The governorship candidate of PDP in Enugu, Peter Mbah, has received an unprecedented massive endorsement from the various communities in the Enugu West senatorial district.

The people from the Senatorial district came out in large numbers on Sunday in Enugu to reaffirm their position about the forthcoming elections.

They took over Awgu town to express their commitment and readiness to vote en masse for Mbah and other PDP candidates from the district during the endorsement rally, tagged ‘Enugu West United for Peter Mbah/Ifeanyi Ossai 2023’.

They also declared that the ruling party had attracted laudable projects, massive infrastructure, and other empowerment packages that had improved the standard of living of their people.

In his welcome address, the chairman of the Planning Committee, Senator Ben-Collins Ndu, disclosed that they had converged on Awgu to reiterate their support and endorsement for Mr Mbah’s candidacy.

Ndu said the district had already made a choice and would ensure victory for him, his deputy and other PDP candidates.

He recalled that in 2021, the people of Enugu West senatorial district came out through the “Ifemelumma Summit” to demand equity, justice and fairness through their support for zoning of power to Enugu East Senatorial district.

He said this was so because of their firm belief that the right thing should be done, explaining that God had used Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to grant their demand.

Explaining that the endorsement rally became necessary because of the progress recorded at the district and their unflinching commitment to a new Enugu, Toby Okechukwu stressed it was aimed at supporting Mbah.

According to him, the large turnout at the rally showed that they believed in the philosophy of ‘Tomorrow Is Here’ as espoused by the governorship flag bearer in his manifesto.

Mr Okechukwu, a ranking member of the House of Representatives representing the Aninri/Awgu/Oji River federal constituency, expressed confidence that Enugu, under Mr Mbah’s leadership, would transform the state’s economy, reform the agricultural sector and ensure massive infrastructure when elected.

Deputy Governor Cecilia Ezeilo lauded the governorship hopeful for his dream for the people, saying that the various stakeholders who spoke at the rally had already revealed the minds of their people.

She moved a motion for the formal endorsement of the gubernatorial flag bearer, promising that the district would leave no stone unturned in rallying voters across the polling units for him.

Mr Mbah said with the “massive endorsement, defeat is already staring at the opposition.”
