The Executive Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, had revealed on Monday that he prays that God gives Nigeria another president like President Muhammadu Buhari, who has a good heart and wants what is good for the country .
The Governor has said this at a meeting with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, where he was addressing State House correspondents.
Gov. Umahi praised the President on some landmark projects in the South East, especially the Second Niger Bridge which, he said, was becoming a reality; and the award of the eastern corridor of the railway line which he said would accelerate commercial activities in the region.
He said that his reason for visiting the state house is to thank the president for the mega project he is doing in the southeast region and also, for the Niger Bridge which was a dream but fast becoming a reality.
He also hinted that the hinted that Buhari has already approved and disbursed the funds into the Solid Mineral Development Fund. However, part of the requirement is that there must be a Special Purpose Vehicle integration or private sector initiative.
He hailed President Buhari for ensuring capital projects are approved and well done.
His statement read in part; “We also have a number of ongoing projects. Most of them will terminate at the end of 2021. Like the International Airport, which Mr. President two years ago gave approval. Now we are the first in the whole Nigeria to build an international airport runway with concrete that is going to be ready for Mr. President to lay the foundation stone. I will invite him next year to commission it.”
He ended his address with prayers, he said ; “I continue to say that power rests in the hands of God. And God will also give us the next president who has a good heart like President Buhari for the good of this country.
“We need God’s own anointing for our own anointed President for the interest and unity of this country.”
