Gov Mbah reacts as tribunal affirms victory at polls


Enugu State Governor Barr Peter Mbah has lauded the decision of the Enugu State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, which dismissed the petitions of the Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, and the Labour Party, LP, challenging his victory in the March 18, 2023 governorship election.

He described the decision as victory for democracy and the people of Enugu State.

The Tribunal on Thursday dismissed the two petitions filed by the governorship candidate of the PRP, Elder Chris Agu, and the candidate of the LP, Barr Chijioke Edeoga for lacking in merit.

Speaking after the verdict, Mbah extended hands of fellowship to the opposition candidates and their political parties.

He said the task to build Enugu remained a collective one, adding that he was committed to working with all, irrespective of political persuasions.

Addressing the people of the State at the Government House, Enugu, Mbah said: “This is another memorable day in the anal of our dear state, as the Enugu State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal affirmed the mandate, which you freely gave to us on 18th of March this year.

“This is a victory for Ndi Enugu. It is also a victory for democracy.

“It is a victory for massive development for Ndi Enugu. It is a victory for exponential growth for Ndi Enugu. It is a victory for Enugu’s greatness. It is a victory for the ban on Monday sit-at-home.

“It is also a victory for our determination to restore water in all your homes in the next 68 days”.
