“I know Ebonyians for their determination, courage and independent mind to do things, and I have seen some signs since we started coming. May God bless you.”
On his part, Governor David Umahi explained that the road was part of the master plan of his administration to construct quality dual carriage road with solar streetlight around the new Government House.
He told the APC presidential candidate that the projects he had seen in the state were just a tip of the iceberg.

So, we are not very keen on commissioning.We are just keen on finishing projects and deploying them for use,” Umahi stated.
