Ebonyi state governor, David Umahi on Saturday reiterated that there is no division in his party, People’s Democratic Party ( PDP) in the South East.
The governor, who is the Chairman of the Southeast Governor’s Forum, stated this at Iboko, headquarters of Izzi Local government area during the flag off of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) campaign in the council.
He charged the people to vote for all the candidates of the party during the forthcoming general elections.
“There is no division in PDP in Southeast, Southeast is PDP and PDP is Southeast. Vote for all PDP candidates”, he said
Governor Umahi promised that the Abakaliki ring road will commence by Match.
He said efforts to begin the construction years earlier were twarted by some members of the All Progressive Congress who deployed all means to frustrate the efforts of government to take loan from the African Development Bank to donstruct the road.
The Abakaliki ring road is the longest road in the state and cuts across 8 out of the 13 local governments in the state.
“The same people who caused the delay are today coming to ask you to vote for them. We will commence the road by Match and will do more projects for you”.
The governor also announced the appointment of Dr Sunday Nwangele as a Commissioner to make it two commissioners from the local government.
He urged the people to vote for Dr Sam Egwu for Ebonyi North Senatorial Zone, Sylvester Ogbaga for Abakaliki/Izzi federal constituency and Chukwuma Nwazunku for Ebonyi/Ohaukwu federal constituency in the election.
The governor also flagged off the the N1.4 bn community development project for the 140 communities in the state.
According to him each Community will get N10m to carry out a project of their choice.
Umahi said the money for the community projects has already been set aside and that leaders of all the 140 communities have submitted projects their communities like for execution.
Umahi noted that he will continue to develop the state and called on the people to continue to support his administration.
“We are starting N10million project in each of the 140 communities. The money is already available, it is by action not by mouth. We said that every community should give us project of their choice and they have done that. So, we will need to flag it off”, he said.
