It is with overwhelming joy in my heart that I congratulate Your Excellency, Dr. Peter Mbah and Barr. Ifeanyi Ossai on your victory as the Governor-elect and the Deputy Governor-elect respectively as well as the subsequent swearing-in on this day, the 29th day of May, 2023 as the Governor and Deputy Governor of Enugu State. As the Holy Bible rightly puts it, “there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God”.
The good people of Enugu State look forward to the deployment of your fountain of expertise, brilliance, skill and wide-reach in consolidating on the achievements of the past PDP Administrations in building a better Enugu State.
As you step into this huge shoes of responsibilities of serving the good people of Enugu with humility and moderation, openness and inclusiveness, simplicity and forthrightness, I pray that the Almighty God who has chosen you will fill you with the unfathomable wisdom, strength and understanding to direct the affairs of our dear State, Enugu.
On the same note, I felicitate and congratulate my Boss, the outgoing Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi on a wonderful eight-year stewardship to the state. May God guide and direct your path and future endeavors.
Congratulations, Your Excellencies.
Hon. David Okelue Ugwunta, Ph.D., AIF, HCIB
