‘Ebonyi State is only Obi-Dient to APC, on the 22nd of this month, we will do a rally that is never witnessed in the entire South East in Ebonyi State.

‘We welcome Asiwaju and the Governors to Ebonyi State to the mother of all rallies. You will see what an Engineer can do when you come. We are not hiding to say you are our candidate, we are not hiding to say that you will take care of the south East people. We are not hiding to say that all our votes will be for the APC. There is no mistake about that.

Tinubu said, ‘This is our joy of seeing a man changing the place he met better than he saw it when he first came in. Today is historical and may this building reflect the progress of our people, the Ebonyi people and the prosperity of this country. As a politician, I am of the APC stock and the APC will be very progressive and will continue to carry you along with our progress.’

On his part, Governor Ganduje said the edifice speaks the mind of Umahi and his strides at infrastructural development in the state, He urged him to continue with the good work.

According to the state commissioner for information, Uchenna Orji, the construction of the edifice started in 2020 and was completed in 2022, adding that it was another feather to the mantra of development celebrated across the length and breadth of the State.
