The people of Ezza North  have pleaded with   the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr.   David   Umahi, not to go to Abuja until he  completes the “good works” he is doing in the state.
They made  the appeal when they paid him homage at  his country home in   Uburu, Ohaozara Local Government Area .
Their spokesman, Mr. Hygienus Nwokwu, said, “Your Excellency, we are highly pleased with the good works you are doing in this our state. We are are particularly pleased that our local government area has been well favoured in the area of infrastructural development.
“You have ensured equity in the spread of projects and appointments. We are happy with you sir. But your Excellency, we want to plead with you not to go to Abuja yet. We say this because very soon, people in Abuja  will soon ask you to come to the centre.
“But we say don’t go yet  untill you have completed the good works you have started.”
The stakeholders,, according to a statement on Sunday by Umahi’s Chief Press Secretary, Emma Anya, added that they did not want a situation where the governor’s “massive projects would not be completed.”
Also,Senior Technical Advisers and Technical Advisers, who were received at the same time and venue by   Umahi, said the governor’s second tenure was assured.
Their leader, Mark Onu, said the only thing that could cause disagreement with them and the governor  was if he chose not to contest the poll.

Onu said, “Few days ago, Your Excellency  , I told you that we have looked at your electoral promises and you have gotten to a decimal point.
“We are happy with you. Your second tenure is assured. We can only disagree with you if you refuse to present yourself but I know the good Lord will guide you in all your dealings”.
They noted that Umahi had  given the state a facelift within a short space of time and urged him to come out for a second term in office.

Responding, the Governor  enjoined them to join hands with him to create wealth, stressing that wealth would help them to represent government at any level.


Umahi, who reminded them that they were  his representatives whereever they found themselves encouraged them to supervise projects sited in their localities.
The governor also stressed need  for the STAs and TAs  to sustain their agricultural  activities   by  making  sure that every empty land in the state  was cultivated.
He said, “I will look at your success  in terms of the volumes of agricultural programmes in each local government. It is very vital because we have gotten ourselves to a very difficult situation and that is the situation of calling us as the first state in terms of agriculture in this country.
“.It is  a task that is quite very high to surmount . So you have to do something. We are to ensure that there is no land in Ebonyi that is left uncultivated.”.
Umahi  told them to channel their strength towards massive food production and explained that enormous resources would  be invested in the area more than before.   .
