Ebonyi State governor, Dave Umahi, on Monday, said God will give Nigeria a president “who has a good heart like President Muhammadu Buhari for the good of this country” in 2023.

He stated this while addressing State House correspondents after meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Umahi praised the President on some landmark projects in the South East, especially the Second Niger Bridge, which according to him, 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.

Reacting to the questions surrounding the purpose of his visit to the State House, the governor said, “I came to see Mr. President. One is to thank him very highly for a number of mega projects that he is doing in the southeast. The second Niger Bridge is fast becoming a reality. Each time we visit that bridge location, it is always like a dream. So, we the people of the South East are very grateful to Mr. President for this.”

He added, “We also thank him for the award of these Eastern corridors of the railway line. This is a project that is going to fast track the commercial activities of our people. I recall that when I was in school, I used to take a train from my state, Ebonyi and then get up to Maiduguri where my brothers were staying, for my holidays. Mr. President is about restoring that hope. We are deeply very grateful.”
