Senator Osita Ngwu, representing Enugu West senatorial district, has felicitated Enugu State Governor Peter Mbah on his victory at the Court of Appeal.
The Appellate Court in Lagos on Friday confirmed the election of Mbah of the Peoples Democratic Party as the governor of Enugu State.
The court unanimously dismissed all three issues raised by the appellant, Edeoga Chijioke Jonathan, of the Labour Party.
The 3-member panel led by Justice Tani Yusuf Hassan ruled that the appellant failed to prove that the respondent forged his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate and was not qualified to run for the government election.
Senator Ngwu, in a congratulatory message, said the victory was a reflection of the overwhelming mandate that the people of Enugu State have given him to be their governor.
The lawmaker said Governor Mbah’s vision, integrity, and passion for the welfare of the people will enable him to make effective decisions and implement positive changes.
The statement reads, “On behalf of myself and the good people of Enugu West Senatorial District, I convey our sincere congratulations to His Excellency, Gov. Peter Mbah, on his recent victory at the appeal court.
“This success in the legal battle challenging his victory at the polls is a reflection of the overwhelming mandate that the people of Enugu State have given him to be their governor.
“The appeal court judgement not only confirms the trust and confidence that the people of Enugu State have in his leadership but also endorses the massive support and faith they have in the governor’s abilities to lead the state towards growth and development.
“The victory serves as proof of Governor Mbah’s tireless efforts in serving the people of Enugu State and ensuring their voices are heard and represented. We are optimistic that under his leadership, Enugu State will continue to experience remarkable progress and prosperity.
“Governor Mbah’s vision, integrity, and passion for the welfare of the people will enable him to make effective decisions and implement positive changes.
“Once again, we congratulate him on this well-deserved victory. We are proud to have him as our governor and look forward to the continuous positive transformation he has established in Enugu State.
