While describing the projects executed by Umahi, an aspirant for the APC presidential ticket, as mind-blowing, the President said he was enthused by the Governor’s vision to create the needed environment and raise the economic status of Ebonyi.

The post read further, “I remember with pleasure, the hospitality that I received, how I was given a Chieftaincy title as ‘Enyioha 1 of Ebonyi State’ and ‘Ochioha 1 of South East’ by the Traditional Rulers of Ebonyi State and South-East respectively.

“At the time I commissioned two twin-flyovers, 14 km Abakaliki – Afikpo Road, performed the foundation Laying Ceremony of the Shopping Mall as well as the 4-way Light Tunnel named after me.

“At that time, the administration was in the opposition party, and yet I was accorded a spectacular reception. Now on this visit, I was privileged to commission these projects whose foundations I laid about five years ago.

“I am indeed very honoured that in the life of my administration, Ebonyi State government and her people made the right choice to join our progressive Party, the APC. I commend the Governor for the courage to join the party at the centre and for all his contributions in moving our nation forward.
