President Muhammadu Buhari will on Thursday visit Ebonyi State to inaugurate some projects in the South East state.
Governor David Umahi, in a statement on Wednesday issued by his spokesman, Francis Nwaze, said President Buhari will arrive in Abakaliki, on a two-day working visit.
The governor said some of the projects that will be commissioned include the New Government House; New Governor’s Office; New State Executive Council Chambers; King David University of Medical Sciences and King David University Twin Flyover.
Other projects to be inaugurated are the Margaret Umahi International Market; International Market Twin Flyover; Uburu-Mpu dualised road; President Muhammadu Buhari 4-way Light Tunnel and State Shopping Mall.
The statement reads: “We acknowledge with the deepest appreciation, your fatherly love and support to Ebonyi State like you do extend to other States irrespective of their party affiliations and which has made our modest achievements possible.”
While urging residents to welcome Buhari, Governor Umahi charged them to remain law-abiding during the President’s visit.
TrackNews understands that the duo as at the time of filing this report are meeting at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Although the reason for the meeting was not made known, this online newspaper understands that it may not be unconnected to Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition.
