Peter Mbah’s Life History

What You Need To Know About Peter Mbah 

Peter Mbah

 

Peter’s education commenced at the Army Children’s School, Bori Camp, Port Harcourt, from where he obtained his first School Leaving Certificate with distinction. After leaving school, he wanted so much to be an international merchant; thus, he engaged in commercial training/trading, simultaneously pursuing his academic studies. He later enrolled at Owode High School, Owode Egba, Ogun State, where he sat for and obtained his Senior Secondary School Certificate in 1992.

 

It was while trading that he realized the importance of Legal Education. He applied to and was accepted to study Law at the University of East London, (UEL) in the United Kingdom from where he obtained a Bachelor of Laws (LL. B) degree, in the Upper-Class Division in 2000.

 

While at the University of East London, his Leadership and Organizational skills came to the fore.

 

He was thus elected president of the Students Law Society between 1998-99. Under his leadership, the school won the Students’ Union prize and Certificate of Achievement for the ‘Most Productive Society of the Year.’ From 1999 to 2000, Peter was a Member of the Students Representative Council of the UEL, as well as a Member of the School of Law Board, where he represented the Final Year students. Peter won the First Prize in the University of East London Mooting Competition and led the University’s team to the International Negotiation Competition.

He returned to Nigeria to study for his bar examination. He was later called to the Nigerian Bar and awarded the Barrister-at-Law (BL) at the Nigerian Law School. He did his youth service in Lagos with the law firm of Udeh and Associates and was mentored by the inimitable Justice Nnaemeka Agu (JSC, rtd) of blessed memory, who was then a consultant to the firm.

Subsequently, Peter proceeded to acquire a Master’s degree in Maritime and Commercial Law from Lagos State University in 2004.

 

In addition to these academic achievements and in the spirit of lifelong learning, he has continued to expand his boundaries of knowledge by participating in numerous other academic and capacity-building programmes, including:

Master’s degree in Business Administration from the IESE Business School, Barcelona, University of Navarra, Spain.

Chief Executive Programme at the Lagos Business School.

Post Graduate Diploma in Strategy and Innovation at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford and, numerous other Executive programmes in leading business schools across the world, including the Stanford Business School and Harvard Business School.

 

Peter’s academic records and grasp of administration, even in his student days, could be gleaned from the testimonials of his leadership given by his former lecturers and tutors at the University of East London, as well as here in Nigeria.

 

Since leaving school, Peter has distinguished himself remarkably, seemingly to justify his tutors – Sumner, McGuire, and Ohuruogu projections of his capabilities. Aside foundingPinnacle Oil and Gas from an almost zero base worth and nil reckoning in the corporate world, he also sits atop the board and management of Pinnacle Pointers, a real estate and hospitality company.

Comrade Deji Adeyanju
@adeyanjudeji
APC plans to share between N10k to N20k per PU in Osun. What is the plan to prevent this from happening? Majority of Poor Nigerians can’t say no to money at PUs on Election Day. Or PDP and others are just going to try to share money too? You can’t outspend the Govt in power.

He also added :

“To understand how to defeat an incumbent, we must ask ourselves how APC did it in 2015. Everybody came together to do it. They also prevented rigging of votes. Although the vote buying concept was not this bad; hunger was also not this prevalent in the country.”

Gbajabiamila is pride to Lagos, face of effective legislature - Lagos Assembly

The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa, and members of the House on Monday showered encomium on Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives, who recently clocked 60.

The members of the House spoke during plenary describing Gbajabiamila as one who has brought pride to Lagos State.

Speaking about Gbajabiamila’s legislative acumen, Rt. Hon. Obasa described the Speaker of the House of Representatives as “a legislator who carries out his duty with passion and dedication. He has sacrificed his own personal interest in the interest of the people.

“You will recall during the reign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); he was awarded a national honour, but because he had reservations the way and manner the country was being managed then, he rejected the offer.

“This shows that he has always been with the people and serves in the interest of the people. He has also contributed a lot to the development of legislative institutions in this country.”

The Speaker thereafter directed the Clerk Barr. Olalekan Onafeko to transmit a congratulatory letter to the celebrant.

The Deputy Speaker, Hon. Wasiu Eshilokun-Sanni, in his congratulatory message described Rt. Hon. Gbajabiamila as an example of what a legislator should be .

“He has shown that the older the wine, the better the legislature,” he said.

Majority Leader of the House, Hon Sanai Agunbiade, described Gbajabiamila is a man that is charismatic of the office he occupies.

“He is calm, composed and each time you watch him preside, you would know an experienced legislator is presiding,” he said.

The Deputy Whip of the House, Hon. Mosunmola Sangodara, described Rt. Hon. Gbajabiamila as a great leader who has brought developmental projects to Surulere constituency.

“He is a very outstanding man. His success cannot be far-fetched as this trait can be seen in his mother who was once a Local Government chairperson and performed very well during her time,” she said.

In his contribution, Hon. Temitope Adewale from Ifako-Ijaye said Speaker Gbajabiamila had shown to the world that there is credence in legislature .

“We are celebrating a man from Lagos who has rose from the ranks to become the ‘number four citizen’ in the country,” he said.

While lending his voice to the debate, Hon. Sa’ad Olumo opined that “Gbajabiamila had done everything in terms of quality representation. He has great impact on us in his capacity and representation.”
