Listen to article

Ebonyi State Governor, Rt Hon Francis Nwifuru, has disclosed that he would approach the State House of Assembly for approval of the supplementary budget to execute more projects.

Nwifuru stated this during a thanksgiving service to mark his one year in office at the Government House Chapel, Abakaliki, yesterday.

He revealed that his administration has effectively implemented this year’s budget so far. He mentioned that the supplementary budget will allow him to undertake and complete important projects such as the Olympics Stadium and the Vanco Junction flyover, among others.

He attributed his success in the last one year to the grace of God and support of the people.

“I am delighted to be here this afternoon. It is not because we are too righteous, but because God chose you to work for Him.

“If we are to thank God for what He has done for us, it will not be enough even till next tomorrow.

I am grateful to God when I look at my background and the incidences behind where I am today.

“I appreciate all those that contested the election with me.

“We are thanking God for Ebonyi State. We are very hardworking, respectful, and industrious.

“There is nowhere you will not see Ebonyians in Nigeria”, he said.

The Governor noted that all the projects embarked upon by his administration have been fully paid for, assuring that efforts will be intensified to industrialize the State.

We have revitalized the pipes production company and it is our intention to get more machines to make it fully operational, including the State Recycling Plant. It is part of the reasons for the supplementary budget.”

Governor Nwifuru also assured that adequate compensation will be paid to those whose property was affected by ongoing construction of the fly over at the Vanco junction.

He called on the people to continue to offer their support and prayers for the success of his administration.

The Catholic Bishop of Abakaliki, Most Rev. Peter Nworie Chukwu, acknowledged the modest achievements of the Governor in the last one year especially in the area of human capital development.

The Bishop, who was represented by Monsignor Felix Onwukaike, appealed to the Governor to also ensure the maintenance of structures put in place by his predecessor.
