The OBIDAATI train berthed in the coal city state Enugu on Thursday 12th January amidst fanfare and excitement as the Peter the Rock crisscrossed Enugu landscape with the kind of massive support from huge crowd that thronged every event he participated in the one day visit.
One man who from the day he was appointed as the Peter Obi campaign Council coordinator in Enugu State has gone out of his way to ensure that the Labour Party Presidential Candidate campaign rally in the state becomes the mother of all Rallies in the South East is the young unassuming and cerebral Czar IDE, PRINCE EMEKA MAMAH of the famous Transport magnate Ifesinachi Transport company.
A one time commissioner for chieftaincy and Rural development in Enugu State and group Managing director Ifesinachi Transport company.
During a recent campaign rally in Igboeze North LGA Enugu State where he hails from, the kind of massive support he got from the Labour Party Enugu State Governorship campaign rally for Edeoga Nwokeabia ticket was a testimony to the fact that IDE is a grassroots person who has affected the life of the youths and the people in general.
His status as a labour Party Enugu State Chieftain has no doubt helped to bring more high profile individuals into the party that is a nightmare to the ruling party as a result of the wide acceptance of the party and the caliber of high profile individuals who daily wish to identify with the greatest movement of our recent time.
As the dust of the tsunami of a visit by the Man of the moment His Excellency Peter Obi is yet to settle it is hoped that the few weeks remaining to the general election in February, Prince Emeka Mamah (IDE) and his Executives will continue to put everything in place for the anticipated victory by His Excellency Peter Obi and his deputy Presidential Candidate Ahmed DAATI will be a fitting present to the Prince of Igboeze North who is coordinating things in the South East capital ENUGU STATE.
