Country Director of the International Development, DAI, Joe Abah has commended the governor of Ebonyi State David Umahi for his efforts in building infrastructures and development in the state.
Abah in a tweet on Saturday explained that despite being the state with the lowest allocation from the Federal Government, the governor has been able to maximise resources to build good infrastructures that has made the state stand out.
He said, “I almost missed the road to my village house today. Since I last visited in December, the main road through the village is now a dual carriage way. Please do you have a dual carriage way in your village or is it only in EBONYI?”.

I visited Ebonyi state last month and I must confess, the governor is doing a great job! The new mall and the airport (in view) is really going to announce that state for what it really is.
