China–based businessman and Chief Executive Officer of Blue Diamond Logistics, Festus Mbisiogu, has commended Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, for his giant strides in infrastructure development and agricultural re-invigoration.
Mbisiogu, who said this after a visit to the state, described Ebonyi as a model of development every governor should emulate, particularly South East governors.
“I’’m proud of governor Umahi and his team. Truly, he has executed the divine mandate of his administration equitably. This has, of course, resulted in the progress made in the areas of infrastructure development and agriculture.
“As far as I’m concerned, Ebonyi State of today is one of the best states in Nigeria, in terms of infrastructure development, which is a key driver for progress, enabler for productivity and sustainable economic growth.
“I‘m shocked at the level of development going on silently in the state. I’m proud of Ebonyi because with the level of infrastructure investment that I saw, human development, poverty reduction, the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), are guaranteed in the state.”
