Enugu Gov-Elect Mbah Extends Hands To Opponents

The winner of Saturday’s governorship election in Enugu State, Peter Mbah, has appealed to his co-contestants to join hands with him to bring good governance to the people of the state.


He made the call in an acceptance speech on Thursday, a day after he was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the keenly contested election.


“In the elections we ran, we are all winners. No one is a victor, nor is anyone vanquished. The task at hand transcends emotions, politics and other mundane divides.


“This is why I extend my hands of fellowship to all my colleagues with whom I ran the gubernatorial election. Our dear Enugu State is greater than all of us. Let us come together and give our people a tomorrow that befits their hard-work, industry and ancestry of greatness,” Mbah said.

He dedicated his victory at the polls, which he said was made possible by the active support of the people of Enugu State, to God.


“This victory could not have been won except for God, with the active support of you, the people of Enugu State. It is why you, Ndi Enugu, are the hero of this victory. You sowed your sweats and prolonged discomfort that earned us this victory.


“In the hot and torrid sun, you were with us; when the rain – literally and metaphorically – drenched us, you stood by us, offering your clothes to damp our wet apparels. And when it was time to stand and be counted with your votes, Ndi Enugu, you did not let us down.”


Mbah of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) polled 160,895 votes slightly above his closest rivals — Chijioke Edeoga of the Labour Party (LP), who scored 157,552 and Uche Nnaji of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who got 14,575 votes, amongst others.
