- Mbah can replicate Pinnacle’s success story as Enugu Governor
The Managing Director of Orava Nigeria Limited, a marine logistics firm, Mr. Darlington Ofor has congratulated Enugu State Governor-elect, Mr. Peter Mbah following his victory at the recent governorship elections.
Mbah, the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State, won the 2023 governorship election in the state having obtained 160,895 votes to defeat his closest challenger, the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Chijioke Edeoga, who scored 157,552 votes.
The Returning Officer for the election, Maduebibisi Iwe, announced the result at the State Collation Centre of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) last week.
“Mbah Peter Ndubuisi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), having satisfied all the requirements of the law and scored the highest number of votes in the election, is hereby declared the winner of the election and is returned elected,” Mr. Iwe declared.
Speaking with newsmen on the development yesterday, Darlington Ofor noted that Peter Mbah’s exemplary leadership and business acumen as the Chairman of Pinnacle Oil and Gas Limited has availed him valuable experience to judiciously manage the resources of Enugu State.
Ofor, however, encouraged the Governor-elect to ensure he prioritizes the interest of the people and incorporates all parts of the state in his developmental strides irrespective of their voting decision at the last polls.
According to Ofor, the Enugu Governor-elect has really distinguished himself as an upright person that would be able to consolidate on the achievement of the outgoing Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
“I want to specially congratulate Mr. Peter Mbah on his victory at the Enugu State governorship elections to emerge Governor-elect. I also want to encourage him to be aware that the real test of leadership will begin when he is sworn-in on May 29th.”
“When you look at the way he has successfully handled Pinnacle Oil and Gas with numerous filling stations and other thriving businesses, you can be sure that Peter Mbah has the skills and competence to lead Enugu State to greater heights,” Darlington said.
Darlington, who is also a former Deputy National President of the Chartered Institute of Transport Administration (CIoTA) Nigeria, charged Mbah to constructively engage and partner with crucial stakeholders to develop blueprints for economic advancement, security, technology, education, health, social investments, youth and women empowerment, among others.
Noting that Mbah has previously served as a former Enugu State Commissioner for Finance, Darlington urged the Governor-elect to equally channel his experience in managing the State’s finances.
