"Also, Dr. Peter Mbah will continue to feature in audience participation programmes and speaking engagements, and direct interface with Ndi Enugu, trade unions, professional bodies, and our communities as he is currently doing across the 68 Development Centres of Enugu State to secure their buy-in for his comprehensive manifesto and roadmap for the quantum leap of Enugu State, once he is elected as governor in the forthcoming elections.
"May we equally seize this opportunity to invite Ndi Enugu and members of the public to join us virtually at the Interactive Town Hall Meeting with members of the Enugu Sports Club tomorrow, January 15, 2023, at 7.00 pm which will be live-streamed on different online platforms.
