The Enugu State Governor-elect Dr. Peter Ndubuisi Mbah has promised to tackle unavailability of water in homes in the state within 180 days of assumption into office.
In his acceptance speech, Mbah promised that his administration will not focus only on Enugu metropolis in tackling water issues but the hinterlands/rural areas as well; “we shall bring water to Nsukka, Oji River, Udi, Awgu and other LGAs too.”
Mbah further promised to upgrade the Abakpa, Ugwuogo Nike-Nsukka road to a dual carriageway, build a monorail from Enugu to Nsukka, Udi, Awgu and construct a ring road to connect all the 17 local government areas of Enugu State.
“We are in a hurry to build a world class Theme Park, establish Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in all the local government areas as well as Agro-Allied Processing Zones and Industrial Parks in all our senatorial zones,” the Governor-elect stated.
Recalling the selfless sacrifice by his supporters and the electorates, Mbah pledged “My obligation is to devote every tissue of my flesh, the totality of my mind and spirit to the task of the greatness of Enugu State.”
“Let me pledge to you, once again, that I will serve you and dedicate every of the 1,460 days that make up this initial tenure of office to serving you. I will remember the coarse road you travailed to get us here.”
Extending a hand of fellowship to the entire 2023 Enugu gubernatorial candidates, Mbah plea, “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.”
“In the elections that 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.”
