Peter Mba

After days of what appeared like a logjam with attendant anxiety and tension over the authenticity of election results from two local government areas, oil magnate, Peter Mbah, has won the last Saturday’s keenly contested governorship election in Enugu State.

Mbah, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) polled 160,895 votes to defeat his closest challenger of the Labour Party (LP), Chijioke Edeoga, polled 157,552 votes.

The Returning Officer for the election, Professor Maduebibisi Ofo Iwe, made the formal declaration shortly after party agents signed the election result sheets on Wednesday night.
