Ebonyi-The Ebonyi State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, stated that it was fully prepared to present Governor David Umahi for contest in the 2023 Presidential Election in the Country.
The State Party Chairman, Barr. Onyekachi Nwebonyi who expressed satisfaction and delight over the outstanding performances of the Governor in every sector of the economy, especially in infrastructure, posited that a leader, such as the Governor, remains eminently qualified to run for the Presidency, following his track records.
Nwebonyi was of the view that the implementation of the Governor David Umahi-led Government’s Policy on Infrastructural Development at the Centre, would bring about sporadic development of the country.
According to him, Umahi is one of the best candidates to tackle the problem that Nigeria was currently facing as the Party was only waiting for him to finish his second term as the Governor of Ebonyi State.
The Chairman of the Party stated this while inspecting numerous projects constructed by the present administration in the State.
Nwebonyi who led other members of the State Working Committee for the inspection, monitored Sam Egwu flyover, Ezzamgbo junction, Ohaukwu LGA, Old Enugu/Abakaliki road, Shopping Mall, Ebonyi State Christian Ecumenical Center, Covid-19,300 bed Facility Center at AE- FUTHA, Chief Arthur Eze Flyover at Abomege, Ebonyi State Medical Science College Uburu, among others.
He said “After his eight years as the Governor of Ebonyi state, we will present him before entire Nigeria to access as alternative to the economic quagmire, political issues and the problem we are having as a country. He is a man with understanding on how things work. In the area of infrastructure, he is number one; in the area of Agriculture, he is number one. Virtually in all segments of the economy, David Umahi has always stood out.
“This shopping Mall our Governor constructed can be likened to a Shopping Mall in Dubai. It s a replica of that and we are not surprised because our Governor is a man that keeps to his words. In the course of taking over power in 2015, he entered into an open covenant with God wherein he promised Ebonyians publicly that he will make Ebonyi state the number one economy in Nigeria.
“At Ezzamgbo Junction, accidents had become a recurrent event. But, with the flyover, accidents will be reduced as it had been at Spera- in-Deo Junction and PRESCO Junction. Apart from the easing of traffic, the bridges have really added to the aesthetic value of the Ebonyi State.
“The Health Sector has seen tremendous advancememt in this regime. The importance of the Ultramodern Wards in this Hospital cannot be overstated. The Wards can best be described as lodges because they have facilities that qualify them as such. With such facilities in the Hospitals, recuperation is made much easier.
“The psychological well-being of a patient is very germane to his recovery. The Medical School and the College of Nursing serve to equip our Health Personnels with requisite know-how as well as confidence.
“One can recall that prior to the ascendance of Governor Umahi to the position as Governor, this Abakaliki – Afikpo Road was in a sorry state and impassable at some points. But today, as you can see, the road has gone from complete repair to dualization. Obviously, Governor Umahi’s projects is always life touching that they begin to impact on the people even while still under construction. The dualization of the road is very important, especially at those sections that traffic is heaviest”.
