Obeagu Community in Awgu Local Government Area virtually stood still Sunday March 26th as a former Guber aspirant and political leader, Prince Gilbert Chikwado Chukwunta, rolled out the drums to celebrate Enugu Governor elect Barr Peter Mbah.
Located on top of the Awgu Hills, Obeagu, a community in dire need of social amenities forgot their worries as they sang and danced in praise of the incoming governor.
The people where particularly elated; with their ‘swag’, they seized every opportunity to announce how they voted massively for the PDP candidate. Yes, they were proud they chose the right path; and have woken on the bright side of history.
The Chief host Prince Chikwado Chukwunta who was also the deputy director, public communications and campaign spokesperson (West) of the PDP state campaign council said Mbah is the right man for the job at this material time and Enugu couldn’t have voted any better.
Fielding questions from newsmen he said; “today, we are celebrating the victory of my party; the PDP and my principal, Dr. Peter Mbah whom we believe has the capacity, character and needed competency to change the fortunes of the state. He has pedigree and track records of achievement judging by what he did with Pinnacle Oil and we’re convinced he will replicate same in Enugu.
“In his manifesto, he said a lot and because of his proven record, we’ve absolute faith that he will deliver on his promises up to 85 percent and more.”
He therefore urged the Governor elect to “go and work for Ndi Enugu, go and lift Enugu better than it is.”
On the areas the Obeagu Community would need the assistance of the Governor elect Prince Nkwonta said:
“Our health centre is dilapidated, we need it upgraded even to a cottage hospital to serve our people. Mbah talked about over 10,000km of roads, we believe our people will benefit from it because we need good roads to take our farm produce to the cities.
Also speaking the Governor elect Peter Mbah, who was represented by member of the State House of Assembly Hon. Paul Nnajiofor, expressed happiness and gratitude with the gesture by the Obeagu Community.
He thanked them for standing in solidarity with him during the campaigns and voting massively for him.
Nnajiofor who represents Nkanu East Constituency in Enugu State House of Assembly assured that “Mbah’s vision is very clear and he’s determined to make Enugu State one of the best three in the country where economy, peace, human development, ICT, tourism, education, rural and physical infrastructure will thrive.
“Mbah wants me to assure them that his manifesto will be implemented to the core and Obeagu will be implemented to the core.
The highpoints of the event was the donation of the sum of one million Naira, which was a pledge made by Prince Chukwunta and gifting a motorcycle to one of the youths from the community for his sterling performance during the governorship election.
