Mbah’s Leadership In Enugu Worthy Of Emulation -PDP Governors

Listen to article

The Peoples Democratic Party Governors Forum (PDPGF) under the Chairmanship of Senator Bala Mohammed, has described as exemplary and worthy of commendation, the quality of leadership provided by the Governor of Enugu State, Peter Mbah over the last nine months. 

The Bauchi state governor made this known in a birthday message on behalf of himself and his colleagues to celebrate the 52nd birthday of Mbah.

According to the statement which was signed on behalf of the PDPGF by its Director General, C.I.D Maduabum, which was sent to The Eastern Updates on Monday, PDP governors were elated that Mbah has had such a profound impact on the lives of his people within a short period with his leadership style.

It read in part: “The forum acknowledges his pragmatic approach to purposeful leadership delivery as witnessed through the reinforcement of law and order, safety of lives and property, as well as the provision of enabling and conducive environment for ease of doing business in the state.

“In the last nine months, it has been a Midas touch in all activities of  Mbah in the delivery of good governance in Enugu State. Starting with the erection of an A-class educational infrastructure and system upgrade, water provision, urban renewal/infrastructure revamp, trade and investment driv.

“Also, repackaging of the solid mineral sector, transportation, agriculture and agro-based production, state-local government joint venture project initiatives, improved workers’ welfare and healthcare service delivery.

“Equally, much impact is being felt in flood and erosion control measures, road infrastructure networks linking several LGAs to promote his administration’s mega farming ventures against poverty and unemployment, skills development and empowerment programmes for youths and women aside other people-friendly initiatives.

“Perhaps the greatest game changer is the conceptualisation and development of a New Enugu City. The forum assures him of our unalloyed support at all times as he oversees the affairs of state,” it said.

Meanwhile, Mbah has described Nigeria’s presidential federalism, which vests too much powers and revenues in the centre as a major setback to speedy socio-economic development in the states.

Mbah likened Nigeria’s brand of federalism to a man with 36 children, but who overworked a few till they became too weak, noting that the ensuing hard times should be seen an opportunity to overhaul the nation’s production strategy.

He, however, commended the transfer of railways and power from the exclusive to concurrent  list to enable the states to play a role in those sectors and lauded the ongoing discussions and predisposition of the President Bola Tinubu administration towards the devolution of more powers to the federating units.
