ENUGU—A leading transporter in Enugu and Managing Director of Peace Group of Companies, owners of Peace Mass Transport, Samuel Maduka Onyishi, yesterday formally declared his interest to contest for the Enugu State governorship position on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Speaking after being cleared by the PDP governorship screening committee, Onyishi said he had the needed experience to attract huge investments to the state and manage its resources efficiently.
He said: “I started my business from the scratch but today, we are a force to reckon with in the country. It doesn’t really matter the amount of money you have but your ability to utilize the little you have.
”Our assurance to Enugu people is we are not only going to make judicious use of the State’s allocation but use our business contacts to bring local and international economic investment here,” he said.
“Even though I am still rendering service to the people through my business, I will do more as a governor. I also believe that God has prepared me enough to be useful to Enugu State people.”
