NSUKKA—-A socio-cultural group under the aegis of Nsukka Ezue, on Sunday, said that the choice of People’s Democratic Party, PDP, candidate in Enugu State, Barr. Peter Mbah, from Enugu East Senatorial District would foster unity, peace and solidarity in the state.
The group said that the choice was in agreement with the already existing zoning arrangement in the state which  designated the next governor of the state to come from the District.
This was contained in a communique jointly signed by the Chairman, Prof. Damian Opata, and the Secretary, Hon. Vitus Ugwu, after a general meeting at Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State.
The group equally lauded Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of the state for his resolve in maintaining zoning arrangement in the state.
Part of the statement reads “The general meeting of Nsukka Ezue held at Professor Opata’s house, and after long deliberations on issues that affect Nsukka in particular, and Enugu State in general, took the 
following decisions:
“The members discussed the primaries in the state, especially those of the ruling party in the state, and were of the opinion that the primaries were very peaceful, despite few observed hitches and challenges here and there.
“The members heartily appreciate the enormous hurdles which faced Rt. Hon. Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi throughout the primaries and beyond. The greatest of these hurdles was the vigourous attempts to scuttle the zoning system for the election of governors in Enugu State. With this in mind, the members  heartily congratulate Rt. Hon. Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for the choice of Barr. Peter Mbah, from Owo, In Enugu East Senatorial District, as the PDP flagbearer in the State. This will continue to foster unity, peace, and solidarity in Enugu State.
“The members equally felicitate with Barr. Peter Ndubisi Mbah on the onerous and challenging task that has been placed on him.We also commend Barr. Peter Ndubisi Mbah for choosing our brother, Barr. Ifeanyi Ossai as his running mate.We have enormous confidence on these great lawyers of national and international repute. We are aware that they have the requisite exposure and immense relevance experience to drive Enugu State to very great and enviable heights. 
“We equally congratulate all the contestants that have keyed into the choice of these great personalities. These contestants have demonstrated the needed maturity and sportsmanship that drive politicsthroughout the world.
“Finally, we call on all Enugu State citizens, home and abroad, and irrespective of party affiliation, to rally round Rt. Hon. Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Barr. Peter Mbah, Barr. Ifeanyi Ossai, and the general leadership of the PDP in Enugu State so that come 2023 Barr. Mbah and Barr. Ossai will have a resounding electoral victory at the gubernatorial election in Enugu State.”
