Enugu state governor is 52! He deserves more than three hearty cheers to celebrate this new age which he attained while in office as the leader of a great state such as Enugu.

As a quintessential politician, public administrator, businessman and lawyer, Governor Mbah has imprinted indelible marks in different areas of human endeavour.

In just two years above half a century of his life cutting across Oil and Gas, Finance, Maritime, Politics, Legal fields, and in the process, he has given many people reasons to be happy. Thus, in the view of F. Scott Fitzgerald, he has become a personality with “unbroken series of successful questures.”
