….A dream Enugu cannot afford to kill for mere partisan considerations
By Nnamdi Chime
Beyond partisan politics, when a people thinks about a better future, they assemble their first eleven for elective positions and the case of Enugu State should not be any different. The man Peter Mbah is indeed God’s gift to not only the good people of Enugu State, but to humanity at large.
An insight into his antecedents as a philanthropist and globally renowned CEO is a befitting testimony of his credibility and capacity to advance the course of the state’s democracy as the next governor of Enugu State.
Long before his decision to run for the governorship ticket of the state, Chief Peter Mbah has over the years used his position as a successful business executive to touch more lives than most serving and prospective political aspirants across the country.
Besides his litany of empowerment schemes and infrastructural development which has transformed many lives and built lots of business and religious institutions, the PDP candidate has brought about disruptive changes to the Nigerian oil sector.
Before his intervention in the challenges facing oil marketers who lift products from Apapa section, it usually takes one to two weeks for marketers to navigate through the heavy traffic, but with the advent of this experienced business leader, the oil sector witnessed a positive transformation that made it easier for business to thrive efficiently in this sector.
More instructive was the fact that it took Peter Mbah just few years to solve administrative bottlenecks hindering productivity in the oil sector through sound initiatives using his Pinnacle Oil and Gas which is practically the leading oil investment concern in the country.
Interestingly, Pinnacle Oil and Gas through quality control and competitive prices for petroleum products has demonstrated high-level commitment towards seamless delivery of products through its branches nationwide, which has consequently maintained stipulated pump price, both in and out of product season.
He was the frontline proponent of moving to the Lekki Free Trade Zone where the ocean is deeper where a Tank Farm was built to facilitate speedy vessel operations and effective service delivery in the oil sector. He had it well planned with foreign partners to the extent that even the biggest vessels in the world can now discharge there.
This partnership with foreign expatriates birthed the acquisition of about 2000 brand new trucks with which Pinnacle Oil distributes products within the country to ensure adequate supply and price stability despite periodic scarcity occasioned by human factor.
These and more to come are few of the landmark achievements that distinguishes the Enugu State PDP Guber candidate from his opponents and contemporaries in view of the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.
