Positive shock awaits Ebonyians prepping to visit home this yuletide.
Simply put, Governor David Umahi’s imprints are everywhere in the fledgling young town. Within two years of his tenure: the impossible began to happen. Today, pleasant surprises is what the state offers to its homecoming sons and daughters from far and near.
The first surprise package that awaits those voyaging back for Christmas celebration is the sharp upsurge in infrastructure even as Nigeria roil in one of the most disastrous economic recessions in the last three years.
They will be shocked that the flyovers they see in other big cities in Nigeria are now sprouting uncontrollably in the state. They will be astonished that all the intra city roads are now fully tarred and electrified. They will be thrilled by the blanket of peace and serenity that has enveloped the state as the governor has ensured that no criminal activity is witnessed during this season. In the nights, they will see the brilliant bright lights radiate incandescently, creating a superb sight.They will be shocked by the invention of water fountain roundabouts in the state and return of drinking water to the dry taps.
They will not help but admire the classy and modern look Government House Gate is now wearing and the charming touches given to our renovated township stadium.
Their expectations to ply dusty roads to their villages and communities will be dashed and replaced with a smooth travel experience.
Today, coming home to Ebonyi state is done with more confidence and joyful pride!
