Lion Building 2023 – “Our Mission is Settled” Echoes from Sen. Ike Ekweremadu’s loyalists over Hon. Dr. Peter Mba’s Candidacy.



The good people of Greater Awgu powered by Sen. Ike Ekweremadu , were out in their numbers recently to give massive support to the candidature of Hon .Dr. Peter Ndubuisi Mbah, the standard bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party in the scheduled 2023 gubernatorial election.

We clearly remember that the Greater Awgu comprising Aninri, Oji River and Awgu local government areas of the state prior to the People’s Democratic Party Primary had a greater percentage of people supporting Senator Ike Ekweremadu in his bid to realize his governorship ambition, nevertheless Hon. Dr. Peter Mba had a gentle but firm understanding with Ike Ekweremadu that they were both driven by their love and care for the good people of Enugu State, therefore, each of them would readily support the other no matter who emerged the eventual victor.

As Senator Ike Ekweremadu in a clear demonstration of the spirit of sportsmanship that is expected of every great leader called Dr. Peter as a rival to congratulate him on his victory immediately after the primary election and for that singular act alongside other associated coordinations, the whole of Sen. Ike Ekweremadu’s political support groups and loyalists which emerged from Enugu West Senatorial District in a recent rally at a serene atmosphere of Ugonabor enthusiastically pledged to pool all the resources necessary from their zone to ensure that Hon. Dr. Peter Mbah takes over from the people – oriented Governor, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Dr. Ifeanyi Lawrence Ugwuanyi as the governor of the Coal City State when the bell rings for voting at the next governorship election.

It is worthy of note that the noble assembly that mobilized the rally already has the blessings and consent of Senator Ike Ekweremadu before they set out for the activities that culminated in the event as they expressed their super confidence in Hon. Dr. Peter Mba’s capabilities to deliver in leadership positions as evident in his sterling political and entrepreneurship antecedents.

Hon. Toby Okechukwu; member representing Oji River /Awgu /Aninri Federal Constituency and the co-host of the event spoke extensively on why those from the Greater Awgu alongside Ike Ekweremadu’s loyalists opted to stand with Hon Dr. Peter Mba’s crew and emphasized their awareness of his awesome precedents in the private and public sectors as he keeps piling up medals for his characteristic excellence in delivery. Hon. Toby Okechukwu after showering Hon Dr. Peter Mba’s crew with much encomiums declared excitedly that their “mission” as the good people of Enugu West Senatorial District is “settled”with the emergence of Hon. Dr. Peter Mba as gubernatorial hopeful of Enugu State come 2023 to the jubilation of the crowd in a ready consensus.

The obviously overwhelmed Hon. Dr. Peter Mba immediately acknowledged the uniqueness of the people of Enugu West and admitted that he had always been in good terms with Senator Ike Ekweremadu before and after the People’s Democratic Party State Primaries, expressing his confidence and hope that Ekweremadu would soon regain his freedom and further lauded the good people of Enugu West before pledging that he will always remain loyal to his people, having learnt both in theory and in reality that the noble people of Enugu West in reality can boast of men of honour, character and integrity: “… men whose words can be taken as a promissory note to the bank.”

The historic gathering ended in praise.

Enugu State is in the Hands of God.
