Ex-governor Chime endorses Peter Mbah for governor

Published

on

The former governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime, has endorsed Dr Peter Mbah the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 11 Governorship and State Assembly elections.

 

The former governor made his stand known in his Enugu residence during an interactive session between Mbah and some group of politicians and members of the businessmen community on Sunday in Enugu.

 

“Mbah is the best candidate for Enugu State. I have had interactions not just with him (Mbah), but with other candidates. Looking at the field, Mbah is the best and credible candidate Enugu can offer now.

“I have no reservations whatsoever in endorsing and supporting him. I believe, that he will not disappoint the people of Enugu,” he said.

He described Mbah as a great asset for the state especially considering his track records of achievements in business and other public engagements saying recently his privately owned company has recorded over N1.4 trillion annual turnover.

“When I was working with Sen. Chimaroke Nnamani, Mbah wasn’t a politician. Mbah is still not a politician. From our interactions he is very clear on what he wants to do. He has a passion of giving back to the state and he has the passion of taking Enugu beyond what it is,” he added.

He declared that Mbah had never been charged for any offence by the Ecomomic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or any security agency.

I’ll Turn Ondo Into Another Lagos, Says Wale Akinterinwa Ahead Of APC Primaries

Published

on

Wale Akinterinwa, a governorship hopeful on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), says he will turn Ondo into another Lagos, the country’s commercial capital, if elected governor.

 

The Ondo APC governorship primary election is scheduled for April 20 while the state-wide election will be held on November 16.

 

Speaking during his official declaration at the ruling party’s secretariat in Akure, the state capital, on Tuesday, Akinterinwa said he will make Ondo an industrialised state.

The governorship hopeful who had worked in Lagos civil service, said he would utilise the natural resources in the state to attract investments.

“We will turn Ondo into another Lagos state in terms of development because we have what it takes, in terms of coast. We must ensure that the port comes alive and that will be a game changer,” Akinterinwa said.

“But, beyond that, we also have the landmass and ought to be an agrarian state. So, we are going to take agriculture to the next level while we encourage and support the local farmers.

“We will also attract investors who will invest in agriculture so that we will be exporting finished products. We will not just be producing for the table but we will be producing for export.”

On security, Akinterinwa said his economic initiatives would get most youth employed and lead to reduction in the rate of insecurity in the state.

“For security, part of our challenges today is because today is because we have many unemployed youths. So, Amotekun founded by our late governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and other South West governors will be strengthened so that with appropriate security in place, we can have development,” he said.
