Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has assured the people of Ezza that work will soon resume on the Ugwuachi end of the North-Onueke Ezza Road in the next one week.

Umahi, at a civic reception for him by the people of Ezza Ezekunna at Onueke on Staurday, added that work on the Ezzama-Oshiri-Onicha Road would commence in the next one month.

The governor, who described the people of Ezza nation as a reliable ally in the struggle for political freedom, social justice and fairness, also said: “We are going to have water together with street light at Onueke in the next two weeks.”

He thanked the people of Ezza for honouring him and his wife, stressing that he was proud of their sons and daughters working in his government.

Umahi recalled that two commissioners out of the four given state award for meritorious service in December 2015 came from Ezza nation.

He said: “I want to say to Ezza nation that I am very, very proud of you people. I am quite appreciative of the commitment of your sons and daughters that are working with me in Ebonyi project.

“I cannot mention all of them, but it is of note that, when commissioners were given award, and I’m not sure they were more than four, an Ezza son and daughter got two. That is eloquent testimony that together, we are moving Ebonyi State forward.”

Governor Umahi lauded the Chief Judge of Ebonyi State, Justice Aloy Nwankwo, for his uprightness in justice delivery, and also paid glowing tributes to National Assembly and State Assembly members from Ezza extraction who stood by him in the face of rising opposition.

The governor praised Ezza people for their great show of meekness and understanding which, according to him, helped to forestall escalation of the Ezza-Ezillo crises.

Governor Umahi promised that his government would soon bring permanent solution to the crises.

The Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Bernard Odo, had earlier in his address, applauded Umahi for his achievements and benevolence to the people of Ezza nation.

“You have brought equity, synergy, foresight, transparency, morality, meritocracy and exceptional energy into the. Administration of the state,” Odoh stated.

Highlight of the ocassion was the conferment of chieftaincy title of Ikenga 1 of Ezza nation on   Umahi and Ozinya Ikenga 1 on his wife, Rachael.
