THE Former members of the Enugu State House of Assembly, comprising former speakers, former principal officers in their plenary resolved to congratulate Gov. Peter Ndubisi Mbah, the Governor of Enugu State on his victory at the appellate court sitting in Lagos, on Friday, November 10, 2023.
It is a patriotic duty by the former lawmakers to place the interest of Enugu State above partisan and narrow interests. To this end, we call on Gov. Mbah to consider the victory at the Appeal Court as part of the deepening process for democracy and a collective triumph for the good people of Enugu State.
While calling on Gov. Mbah to be magnanimous in victory, we call on all and sundry to team up with the governor in the interest of Enugu State.
The former members explained that what should preoccupy the leaders is the vision of the Founding Fathers of Enugu State.
It is lamentable that at the creation of Enugu State in August 1991, there were the Sunrise Flour Mills, Emene; Hotel Presidential, Enugu; Ikenga Hotels, Enugu; Star Printing and Publishing Co (Daily Star), ETV/ ESBS in full operation; ENTRACO, Emene; Niger-gas. Emene; Niger Steel Emene; Anambra Vegetable Oil, (AVOP), Nachi; Building Materials, Ohebedim; Games Village, Awgu and many others and almost all the above parastatals enjoyed three shifts of workers on a daily basis.
There was a regular water supply in the Enugu metropolis and the environs. But today, all these are history. The above narrative is very regrettable and should be a source of worry to every patriotic son and daughter of Enugu State.
It is the hope of the members that the Peter Mbah disruptive and innovative policies will stimulate and incentivize the abundant but dormant human resources in the state for the wellbeing of the good people of Enugu State.
“We commend the gallant men and women of diverse political persuasions for their sustained struggle for the Enugu Lion Building, which commenced over four years ago. However, as brothers and sisters, we must put the past behind us,” the statement endorsed by Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, Chairman, former members of the Enugu State House of Assembly, said.
