…as Enugu South LGA assures of resounding victory

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Enugu State, Dr. Peter Mbah, has reassured the people of the state of his resolve to address the protracted traffic congestions in the state by creating alternative routes and flyovers that will ease movements.

Dr. Mbah gave this assurance at town-hall meetings held in Idaw River and Eke Otu, Amechi Uwani, headquarters of Enugu South East and Enugu South Central Development Centres, respectively, which attracted stakeholders across different political parties, business community, religious organizations, professional bodies, civil society groups, artisans, traders and farmers.

The governorship candidate who was responding to the endorsement as well as demands made upon him by the spokespersons of the various wards in the local government area, stated that massive investments in the state could only be possible when there are basic infrastructures such as access roads, flyovers and other modes of transportation that will facilitate seamless movements.

The governorship hopeful further said he was conscious of the important roles that service roads play in urban renewal which his administration will prioritize, adding that his aim is to build a world class city that the citizens will be proud to live in.

Re-echoing that his administration will construct at least 10,000 kilometers of roads within the next eight years when elected in 2023, the governorship hopeful pledged to construct 1200 kilometers of roads every year.

Further maintaining that his government will create an environment for investment through robust development programmes that will make the youth productive, and upscale production in the agricultural sector, the business mogul promised that Enugu will be the next industrialised city of the country.
Speaking earlier, the entire people of the area expressed their commitment to give the PDP gubernatorial flagbearer a resounding victory in the forthcoming general elections, saying that his development programmes as contained in his robust manifesto have helped them to anticipate a new Enugu State under his administration.

While maintaining that the local government has no other political party except the PDP since 1999, some of the stakeholders that spoke at the gatherings promised that they’re deferring party sentiments to support the best governorship candidate in the state.

They commended Mbah’s manifesto for addressing their fundamental needs and proffering the way forward to their collective problems, stressing that they’ll vote for him because of his unblemished credentials in the private sector where he has been leading the downstream sub-sector of the Nigerian oil and gas industry.

Addressing the well-attended interactive session, one of the grassroots mobilisers in the area, Hon. Emma Ugwu said the council area had already taken the project as their own because of his pacesetting integrated development plans for the state.

He lauded Mbah’s uncommon exploits in the private sector where he employed thousands of Nigerians including Enugu citizens, stressing that he would bring the same entrepreneurial skills and administrative proficiency in the state.

Similarly, Hon. Paul Ogbe who is known for his experience in delivering electoral victories in the development centre, stated that they’d already embarked on streets campaigns for the governorship candidate.

He called on the party to extend its development tentacles to their environs by reconstructing the Loma Linda-Monarch-Express road, Timber-Ndemude-Top Land-Express road, and Emeka Ebule road which has two strategic bridges linking Mount, Akwuke communities and other towns in the area.

A legal practitioner at the meeting, Barr. Francis Ani, while calling for more political inclusion of their people, re-echoed their confidence in Mbah’s ability to ensure justice and equity prevail.

According to him, the PDP gubernatorial candidate has renewed their hope of having a new state through his successful businesses scattered across the globe.

On his part, the administrator of the development centre, Hon. Chinedu Onukwe reiterated his people’s commitment to vote en masse for the PDP, adding that Mbah has no rivals in terms of his programmes and robust plans for the people.

Onukwe while rendering the stakeholders that graced the town-hall meetings, said they’re going to deliver bloc votes for the party through the dignitaries and people of the area that had already started campaigning for Mbah and his running mate.

In his contribution, the member representing Enugu South and Enugu North Federal Constituency, Hon. Ofor Chukwuegbo commended Mbah for bringing government closer to the people through the initiative behind the town-hall meetings, adding that his leadership had delivered 2.1 kilometers road in the urban area.
