Monica Congratulates Umahi for Positioning Ebonyi, Nigeria’s Lowest Federal Allocation Earner, to Rank First Among the 36 States

….Says he may be the Messiah Nigeria needs to Turn the Fortunes of the Country.

Lady Monica Chidinma Eze, erstwhile Technical Assistant on Media to the Executive Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. David Nweze Umahi, has expressed satisfaction over the sterling performance of the Governor, which has repositioned the state and earned her a pride of place in  service delivery in several critical sectors.

The former Governor’s  Media Aide made the expression while congratulating Gov. Umahi and the good people of Ebonyi over the emergence of the State as the best performed in Investment in Capital Infrastructure in Nigeria and many other sectors.

In a statement made available to media houses in Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi State, Lady Monica said Gov. Umahi has shown enormous commitment in service delivery through Infrastructural and human capital development which remain very critical elements of good governance and societal growth.

While stating that the State Government under the current administration has a grasp of shrewd common sense in public finance management, Monica Aka Ada Ebonyi commended the independent assessors who fact-checked and profiled each state according performance, for doing a fair job and urged them to continue to be independent in their assessments.

Created in 1996, Ebonyi State is one of the lowest earners of the FG monthly allocation with a meagre internally generated revenue making it uneasy for the government to take up critical development projects.

This narrative perpetually placed the state on the list of the poorest in the country.

According to Lady Monica the President and Founder of DUNAETA, fortune smiled at Ebonyi when in 2015, Engr. David Nweze Umahi took up the responsibility of steering the statecraft with a robust economic master plan spanning through a variety of critical sectors including infrastructure, investment, economy, health, education, jobs, human capital development etc.

Employing the best hands into his cabinet to drive the blueprint of development, six years after, Umahi has turned Ebonyi into a construction site and an investment haven.

With an improved internally generated revenue, reinforced workforce, towering economy, top notch infrastructure, quality healthcare and massive investment in education and human capital development, Monica said Umahi has earned the Ebonyi a pride of place in the comity of states.

Ada Ebonyi opined that Ebonyi State at the age of 25 not minding the state of her creation and backwardness in the past has come of age to take its rightful position among the comity of States in Nigeria courtesy of the remarkable impacts and innovative leadership that the current Governor have brought to bear on the leadership of the State.

The remarkable feats of Governor Umahi within the past six years in areas of healthcare, education, security, initiating one of the best Airports in Nigeria, agriculture, maintenance and dualization of Federal Roads particularly the Abakaliki to Enugu and Abakaliki to Afikpo Express Roads,  Construction of the Biggest State Shopping Mall in Nigeria,  prompt payment of salaries to civil servants and pension to pensioners, plans to  employ of over 5,000 civil servants while many other States are plotting on how to sack most of their workers, infrastructural revolution which are visible even to the blind placed Governor Umahi as the best in Nigeria today.

Through this enigma, Ebonyi State has begged the best State in Nigeria in  Prudent Use of Public Resources,  best State in Nigeria in Investment in Capital Projects  4th best State in Nigeria in Reducing Debt Burden & Well Controlled Debt Borrowing,  4th best State in Nigeria in Investing Towards Self Reliance, 2nd best State in 2021 Fiscal Performance Ranking

All these are 2021 Rating of States in Nigeria as produced by Nigeria’s most reliable economic development  analysts ( FG Budget Office)

If what Governor Umahi is doing in Ebonyi State is not revolution then I wonder what revolution is all about, Monica echoed

I therefore suggest that it is time for all Nigerians both within and in the Diaspora to invest in Ebonyi State having put in place the kind of infrastructure we see in advanced countries of the world.

Ebonyi is truly blessed with an enigma and innovative leader as her Governor that one can easily postulate that the modernization of Ebonyi State has been achieved in our lifetime through Apostle Dr. David Nweze Umahi.

Lady Monica commended the Governor and his cabinet for working hand in glove to rewriting the story of Ebonyi and urged Nigerians to support the Governor for greater service to Nigeria.
