Francis Nwaze, Special Assistant on Media to Governor Dave Umahi, said the Ebonyi State governor has built numerous flyovers in the State in less than seven years in office.
In a series of twitter post, Nwaze said the flyovers constructed by his principal are all located in various part of the State. He noted that, the “flyovers are thirteen in numbers and ten of the flyovers are double which makes it a total of 23 flyovers, constructed by Governor Dave Umahi in less than 7 years in office.”
Nwaze also said apart from the flyovers constructed by Umahi, the governor has boosted economic and educational drive in Ebonyi State. Also, Umahi is currently building one of the biggest and most beautiful International Markets, University of Medical Sciences and Hospital, International Airport and Olympic stadium, all in Ebonyi State.
Responding to request by bureau chief of a daily national newspaper, Nwaze wrote;
“It is correct that Governor Umahi’s administration has constructed more than 10 flyovers, there are 13 flyovers and 10 of the flyovers are double which means that we have a total of 23 flyovers. One of the flyovers is 30 span, about 500m while another one has 6 entries and exits.
“However, it should be understood that these flyovers are just a part of many other infrastructural, economic and educational transformations that are ongoing in Ebonyi State as the state takes pride in building the biggest and arguably the best and most beautiful Shopping mall in Nigeria – we call it the microcosm of the macrocosm of the Dubai Mall, the biggest and most beautiful international market that is fully deployed, the best and most beautiful University of Medical Sciences and hospital, an ongoing outstanding international airport, over 600 roads constructed on 8 inches concrete pavement, ongoing construction of an Olympic stadium, regular payment of civil servants, massive empowerment for the youths, farmers and widows; massive care for the less privileged, jobs creation and employment, security of lives and property, etc.
“I also informed him that nothing has been done by Umahi’s administration that depicts any form of segregation of any zone or council areas as Governor Umahi believes in Ebonyi State as a state and not a segmented Ebonyi State. As the larger we are in unity, the better. This is equally his believe in Nigeria – a one united Nigeria.
“It is best to say that Ebonyi State has become the rejected stone that is becoming the chief cornerstone as no stone is left unturned under Governor David Umahi.
