Enugu Assembly Members Commend Gov Mbah on Infrastructure, Good Governance


_…call for more support as committee rates quality of road construction high_

Enugu State House of Assembly members have commended the commitment of the state governor, Dr. Peter Mbah Mbah, over his infrastructural initiatives and good governance spread across the state.

Members of the House Committee on Works and Infrastructure led by Hon. Clifford Obe, representing Igbo-Eze North Constituency II, made the commendation over the weekend during the inspecting of some of the ongoing projects in the state as part of their oversight functions.

Addressing newsmen shortly after the inspection of the ongoing road construction at the Golf Estate/Trade Fair Dual-Carriageway, Obe, while calling for more support for the Mbah administration, said the committee was impressed with the quality of job going on in the state.

Obe, who passed a vote of confidence on the contractors engaged by the state government, noted that Ferotex Construction Ltd had distinguished itself with the quality and speed at which it was delivering the various projects awarded to it by the Mbah administration.

“When you see a good job you will know. We have not seen any problem with the works so far. We are impressed with the standard of work we saw today,” he added.

The committee chairman further described the governor as a blessing to the people of the state for ensuring continuity of good governance through project execution and capacity building.

According to him, members of the house would no longer carry out their oversight functions in the office, saying that inspection of projects on the field would help them hold any contractor performing below standard accountable.

He stressed that the governor’s one year in office witnessed massive improvement through the commissioning of multiple projects, further assuring that more projects would soon be commissioned by the administration before its second anniversary.

On his part, a member of the committee representing Igbo-Etiti constituency, Hon Williams Amuka, expressed satisfaction with the rating of the government in the past one year, maintaining that projects were going almost simultaneously across all the electoral wards in the state.

“Everybody is rejoicing because in every ward there are projects of smart schools and healthcare facilities going on. Most of us have been going to our various constituencies to make sure that these contractors deliver the projects in record time.

“The idea behind the smart schools is innovative and ingenuous. You are also aware that the Enugu State Universal Basic Education Board (ENSUBEB) is recruiting smart teachers which is going to transform our system of education. Also, the 33% budget allocation to education in the state’s 2024 budget by the governor is commendable and this deserves our support as a committee and as a legislative organ,” the lawmaker noted.

Extolling the governor for his integrated development agenda, a member of the committee representing Aninri constituency, Hon Magnus Edeh, said he had understudied the policies and programmes of the governor and would describe him as a “millennium, digital and tech-compliance governor”.

He observed that Aninri is experiencing agro-industrial revolution under the administration through deliberate mechanized inputs and investments in the agricultural sector which would soon guarantee food security and made-in-Enugu products for export.

“The governor has committed huge investment in the agricultural sector, and my constituency in Aninri local government is a reflection of that. Thousands of hectares have been cultivated with cassava to encourage bio-ethanol production by the government.

“I believe that the governor has come to change the narrative with a new leadership trajectory. So, we will continue to support his government to deliver dividends of democracy,” he said.
