A group which has identified itself as the Nsukka Professionals Association (NPA) has asserted that the Supreme Court decision which affirmed the declaration of Peter Mbah as the governor of Enugu State should actually bring to an end all the agitations and protestations about the concluded gubernatorial election in the state.

The association invited the state’s political elite to work with Governor Mba to urgently implement the policies and measures required to improve the living conditions of Enugu residents and bring about rapid and sustainable development to the state. It also urged contestants who felt wronged to get ready to run again in 2027.

The association, in a statement by its President, Mr Charles Nwodo Jnr, formerly congratulated Governor Peter Uba over his victory at the Supreme Court affirming that his declaration as Governor has brought to an end the legal challenges to the state gubernatorial election outcome.

Mr Nwodo Jnr asserted that the association would maintain with vigour, its role as promoter of good governance and electoral integrity as well as foremost defender of the common good.

The association further extended congratulatory message to the gubernatorial candidate of Labour Party in the state, Hon. Chijioke Edoga for the important achievement recorded by his party stating that “more significantly, for his decision to resort to the courts and not to the streets to seek redress in relation to the election outcome.

According to Mr Nwodo Jnr, Hon Edoga should be proud of himself and his party for his contribution in raising civic awareness and deepening the political space in Enugu State and Nigeria.

NPA also noted that valid and substantial misgivings about the 2023 election outcome in the state exist, but, asserted that the Supreme Court decision should draw the curtains on all agitations.
