Ebonyi SSG's Aide Dedicates Daughter.


By Einstein Chukwu.


It was indeed a great moment of joy for the Hon. Morris Eguji and his wife, Sonia, as they dedicated their daughter, Amazing Morris Eguji to God at the Christ Embassy Church, Mile 50, Abakaliki.


Speaking at the event, Morris expressed gratitude to God for being merciful to his family, especially for seeing the wife through the pregnancy period to the time of delivery without any problem, adding that the event was an opportunity to show gratitude to God for the gift of a child that God added to their family.


“I want to thank God for how far he has brought me in the journey that started since 2010 which has metamorphosed to a big family. I came here as a single man and now, I am blessed with two wonderful children and a comely wife, a woman that is down to the earth. We are here today to celebrate God for a safe delivery by my wife, and to show gratitude to Him alone for the gift of a beautiful baby girl”, he said.


He appreciated Dr. Ugbala Kenneth Igwe and Hon. Ogbuefi Elekwachi for their support and fatherly roles in everything that concerns him and assured that they will not shirk in their responsibility of bringing up the child in the fear and way of the Lord.


High points of the event was prayer of dedication by Pastor Eunice Oyeyemi and testimony by the family, praying that the child, Amazing, will grow in wisdom and knowledge of God.


Hon. Morris thanked his friends and his family for coming to share with them in their moment of joy.

Happy Easter Celebration.


I, on behalf of my family and staff of the Cabinet Office, Abakaliki, heartily felicitate with you, the father of Ebonyi State, Engr. Chief David Nweze Umahi, FNSE, FNATE, the first family and indeed, all Christians across the State, on this year’s Easter celebration.


Easter symbolises love, sacrifice, service to God and country as well as the triumph of good over evil. We should always reflect on the lessons and significance of the season and demonstrate the same in our lives.”


Therefore, as we mark the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, I urge you to continue to demonstrate love, promote peace and show good neighbourliness to your fellow human beings wherever you may find yourself.


We are indeed in a trying moment but I am optimistic that with collective commitment, sacrifice and by turning to God through prayers we shall overcome all the trials and emerge stronger.


Our government is working assiduously through various empowerment programmes, and infrastructural development ongoing in the state to alleviate the plight of the masses and rewrite our narratives as undeveloped state, which we were known for in the past.


Therefore, for us to get there, we must emulate the virtues of tolerance, love and selflessness as espoused by Jesus Christ in commemoration of this holy day. May God bless and keep all of us.


Once more, i wish Christian faithful, peaceful and joyous Easter celebration in Jesus name.

Valentine ties nuptial nots with heartthrob


By Einstein Chukwu


The love between beautiful Njideka Lucy Nwaza and Chukwuma Valentine Ugbala, the younger brother of the Secretary to Ebonyi State Government and Coordinating Commissioner, Dr. Kenneth Ugbala Igwe, was on Saturday March 5th sealed in marriage at St. Luke Chaplaincy, Presco Campus, Abakaliki.


His Excellency, the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. Chief David Nweze Umahi, represented by his Deputy, Barr. Eric Kelechi Igwe, described marriage as the fulfilment of the holy scripture which says that the two shall become one, adding that it is specifically meant for procreation.


He said “Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, it gives me pleasure to be here today to witness the solemnization in holy matrimony between Valentine and Lucy. Each time I am invited to occasions like this, I get so very excited. The excitement is in two, three phases: firstly, it is the fulfilment of the holy scripture that there must be multiplication so that earth will be replenished.


Secondly, it is also to add more numbers to our numerical strength especially to some of us in politics, you know politics is a game of number. And lastly, it is to expand our demography as Igbo race”.


Dr. Kelechi Igwe further charged the couple to always use dialogue and comedy in resolving the intrigues and intricacies associated with marriage and expressed optimism that their marriage would be a blessing.


In a homily, Rev Fr. Dr. Joseph Monday Orji, advised the newly wedded couple to always submit to one another and never allow third parties into their union.


Families, friends and well-wishers, including, Ebonyi State Executive Council members honoured the occasion and offered special prayers to them for a blissful marriage.

Good governance, panacea to underdeveloped rural communities: case study of Ebonyi State.


Written By

Einstein Chukwu, A Public Affairs Analyst.

The primary aim of establishing local government areas is to decentralize functions, powers of government to the grass-root, and to bring development down to the suburban areas as well as to ensure that more people participate in the process of governance. A local government system is generally regarded as a powerful instrument to community development.


Through the local government, the entire nation is broken into small local areas which constitute centres for development at the grassroots level as they serve as units for equitable sharing of government amenities.


Good governance is also about the relationship between the state and its citizens, either in their individual capacity or as a group. It is equally a process by which government and the people together identify shared values, needs and challenges and jointly manage their implementation and the available resources through a transparent and accountable process with shared responsibilities for outcomes that are responsive, gender-sensitive and broad-based.


Before now, I used to ask questions on why we have local government areas when there are no good road network to access them and basic amenities for people to enjoy? That was the case of local government areas of Ebonyi State before the advent of Governor Umahi as the third civilian Governor of the State.


To some States, good governance is a mere fantasy as it only exists on the pages of the newspapers. But that is not the case in Ebonyi State as it is seen everywhere with visible and touchable evidences across the three senatorial zones of the state.


Residents of various communities in Ebonyi State can now beat their chests in awe as they recall the “then and now scenarios”. The story of impassable streets and how the ghettos of wretchedness used to constitute an eye sore.


To travel from one local government to the capital city was akin to the journey of Israelites to the Promised Land, full of detours and tortuous but now, the difference is clear as the then rural communities have now assumed a new look with good road networks all over and business activities as well as nightlife are booming due Umahi’s Midas touch.


As a way of practicalizing good governance, Ebonyi State Government has constructed over 15 kilometres of roads in all the local government areas. These include 23.5km Amasiri-Uburu road; 15km-Amasiri-Owutu-Oso Edda road; 15km Nwiboko Obodo Road; and 23.5km Ezzama-Oshiri-Onicha Road. Others include the 25.4km Abomege -Ukawu-Ugwulangwu Road, 23km Agbaja-Nwofe, and 12.6-km Okue-Nzerem-Ishiagu Roads, 14km along Abakaliki-Afikpo road, 4.7-km Enugu-Abakaliki road, 15km Nkalagu-Egedege-Ehamufu road, 18-km Nkwagu-Enyigba-AEFUNAI, among others


In semblance, Hon. Mrs. Princess Nkechinyere Iyioku Ezeani, Chairman, Ohaozara L.G.A., following in the footsteps of her father, His Excellency, Chief David Nweze Umahi, has turn Ohaozara Local Government Area to an El-dorado through the transformational and enviable projects in the local government area. Indeed, these projects are unprecedented and Ohaozara people have every cause to celebrate as government of the people by the people has been exemplified, and campaign promises fulfilled.


Some of her achievements include the construction of a 1km road network at Ugwulangwu, Grading and lateriting of Enyimeyi road from Ugwulangwu to Okposi, construction of concrete road from local government secretariat at Obiozara to Brass Junction, construction of parking lot at the local government headquarters, reconstruction of Ohaozara local government council hall, construction of a new local government chairman's lodge, construction of Njoku Oha Mega culvert 1 at Mebiowa Okposi, construction of Mega culvert at Amogba village, Ugwulangwu, construction of Mini Bridge at Umuakuma-Ekem bridge, Okposi, construction of Mini bridge at Enu-egu Umunaga Uburu, construction of Njoku Oha Mega culvert 2 at Mebiowa, Okposi, reconstruction of Ebonyi State Electoral Commission ( EBSEC) building at the local government headquarters, reconstruction of six classroom blocks at Ugwulangwu secondary school, construction of a six classroom blocks at Igwebuike primary school Ugwulangwu, and construction of street lights along Okposi- Ugwulangwu road, among others. These projects are not done for political aggrandizement but to justify pronouncements in her electoral manifesto.


Unarguably, Governor Umahi has shown Nigerians the way to go in providing effective leadership, enabling political and legal ground for economic growth and equitable distribution of wealth and social welfare to the civil societies and communities with a view to facilitating political and social interaction, societal cohesion and stability.


Governor Umahi as a performer and the grandmaster of infrastructural development has exercised judiciously the economic, political and administrative sagacity and suave to manage the affairs of Ebonyi State at all levels. He has shown class in administration of good governance hence the need to entrust him with bigger things come 2023. As the maxim goes: “to whom much is given, much is expected”, and charity, they say, begins at home. Let us give him a chance to transform Nigeria.


Development is a process and has begun in Ebonyi State with Governor Umahi. It is good to know that Dubai as a city was not built in a day. There is no one giant step that does it all but one step at a time.


I mean, we do not develop anything with one giant step. No matter who you are, or what you do, each one of us had had to take a lot of individual steps to accomplish a task, a job, a career, or even a hobby.


Each step serves to move us forward even if it is an inch at a time and Governor Umahi has taken more than a leap in administering good governance.

2023: Why Governor Umahi Stands A Better Chance To Pick APC Presidential Ticket – Orji


In this interview with LEADERSHIP, commissioner for Information and State Orientation in Ebonyi state, Barr. Orji Uchenna Orji, says the state governor, David Umahi who has declared his intention to run for President under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stands a better chance to clinch the party’s ticket among other contestants.

by Leadership Group

**Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has declared his intention to contest the presidency of the country in 2023. In view of others such as Bola Tinubu, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo that have shown interest to run under the All Progressives Congress (APC) what will be the chances of Governor Umahi?*

*

Let me say that power belongs to God. The governor as a very committed member of the APC believes that it is the decision of the APC leadership and entire structure through the delegate election that will decide who becomes the president. What is very important at the moment is to look at the track records of those who are contesting for the president because at this time in our history we cannot afford to disappoint Nigeria and Nigerians. I say this because over the years we have been complaining about lack of performance, lack of good leadership, issues of job creation and creating the environment for private sector participation in the development of our nation. We are also talking about how to improve on the wonderful strides of President Muhammadu Buhari, how to get a square peg in a square hole and a round peg in a round hole that will continue from where Mr. President will stop in 2023.


We should be thinking about somebody that has got the performance credential, the passion, the zeal and the energy.


And I can say that within the APC we have people who have declared, but looking at the track records of all of these people, one can say that Governor Umahi has very bright chances of becoming the candidate of the APC.


*You have painted a glowing picture of the governor’s track records in your state. Can we compare it to some of the other big weights vying for the party’s ticket?*


Who becomes what at any point in time has two major factors. One- God Almighty who is in heaven and controls our doings, and two- the people themselves. I can tell that if you look at the history of those that have become president, it is not all about struggling, it is not about how rich you are or how connected you are, it is all about the favour of God through men who God is using to put people on board and we do hope that this case will not be an exception.


The people whom God uses to anoint someone, God will use the same people to anoint who becomes the president. It is our prayer and hope that that will favour the Governor of Ebonyi state, it does not matter that the person is not the richest, what matters is that God sees the heart of every man and knows what is the yearning of the people of this country.

2023 is a defining moment in the area of insecurity, is a defining moment in the area of giving the people effective and efficient leadership and if we don’t get it right in 2023, it is going to spell doom to the unity and collective existence of this country.


*The party has talked about the zoning formula and from all indications, the North is taking the position of the national chairman of the party and the South is taking the presidency. South east is one of zones in the south that has not had a shot at the presidency. What will you say to those from other parts of the south angling to become president?*


The issue of zoning of revolves between North and south and it is looking at critical national positions, which includes that of the president of the federal Republic of Nigeria. But in all of these things and considering the real essence of nation building, it is important that equity, morality and equality be brought on board to determine where next it goes as it has come to the south. Looking at the scenario in 1999, somebody became president from southwest, by God grace through the instrumentality of men. And the person served for eight years.


And power had to return to the north if not for some eventualities that made somebody from south- south to be president. And now, by the good judgment of Mr. President and by his effective judgment as the leader of the APC, we are beginning to see a sign that the APC will zone the presidency to south.


What it entails is that the APC leadership believes in equity and what it means is that it has to trickle down. There has to be effective equity in the south. That is to say now that we have a region that produced the president for eight years and coupled with the fact that the current vice president is also from that region, and coupled with the fact that the immediate past president is from the south-south, it is only fair and equitable, morally speaking that south east be considered.


But when people have confidence and hope that with time they will have opportunity of showing their ability and capability, it will heal a lot of wounds. Based on that you can see that prominent Nigerians are saying that it is only good for the south east to produce the president. APC has done the needful and we commend them.


We are therefore challenging other parties to be very sincere to themselves to show sincerity of purpose by being decisive the way the APC has done by zoning the national offices of their party and giving indication that the Presidency is going to the South.


Once the presidency comes to the south as we are expecting, the needful will be done. And we believe that the people of Nigeria, will have to say south east it is your turn; let us see what you can do.


*The issue of Ebubeagu appears to be a constraint that elements in the state are using to perhaps scuttle the chances of the governor. How is he handling this issue and insecurity in the south east?*


Let me say that Ebubeagu is one of the best things that has happened to Ebonyi State. The Ebubeagu came as a result of agitation in the south east. Ebubeagu came because of the call that the entire security outfits of each state should have a commonality of effect just like we have in the south west.


Before the constitution of Ebubeagu, we had had what was called neighborhood watch and in its function and duties is the same thing as what we are seeing with Ebubeagu except that in the case of Ebubeagu we had to further strengthen the laws to ensure that the collaboration between Ebubeagu and the conventional security outfits is enhanced, the collaboration between the Ebubeagu of Ebonyi State and Ebubeagu of other states is enhanced and that is the very reason for the existence of Ebubeagu in South East.


Following the resolution of south east Governors and leaders of south east that is the Owerri Accord, Governor Umahi had to take the bull by the horn being the chairman of the south east governors' forum by renaming the security outfit Ebubeagu and it goes to show that the governor is proactive, effective and responsible as a governor who does the yearning of the people of the south east.


Now, who are the people castigating Ebubeagu? They are opposition elements who do not know the rudiments of politics and what opposition is all about. When the governor entered into APC they cried foul, the first thing they did was to name him Fulani, Hausa and everything .


Today, when they have seen that that blackmail did not succeed they raised the issue of Ebubeagu being a militia. But that is by the way. The issue is that these opposition elements were part of the nomination of Ebubeagu at the time it was called neighborhood watch. But because they have seen a sense of self-rejection in the state, some of them are in the National Assembly as PDP lawmakers, their plan to have automatic ticket is failing, and then they started using the media platforms to castigate Ebubeagu.


Let me tell you one thing, Ebonyi State is the safest state among the states of the south east, the state government is known for its engagement power, engaging even the non state actors, and stakeholders at all levels to ensure that there is security in our place.


Today, even on Mondays, we go on our normal businesses and Ebubeagu is contributing to the peace that we are seeing, to the security that we are seeing. If you go to Ebonyi State in the evening, you can be sure that no matter your position, you can walk around in the evening and you are not molested. Apart from pockets of hit –and- run kind of attack by people that we perceive could be elements who are being funded by opposition; we have got no problem about violent attacks in the state the way we are seeing in other parts of the south east.


*The governor joined the APC just about a year ago, won’t that affect his chances of picking the party’s ticket?*


Let me say that qualifications to be a candidate of any political party are provided in the constitution of the party. Beyond that there are virtues that you need to cultivate to be selected or to be chosen. One of them is loyalty, membership that is committed and up to date and of course track records of performance as well as marketability of a person.


In the case of our governor, he has up to date membership, he is loyal, he is committed, he is one of the best governors, one of the shining stars that people trust that can make all the difference. So, we leave the decision to the party hierarchy. We also leave the decision to God who raises people to do things in the interest of the people.

International Market Abakaliki: Governor Umahi to Issue right to title document.


By Einstein Chukwu.


Ebonyi State Government has assured traders and shop owners at the St. Margaret Umahi International Market, Abakaliki, that certificate of occupancy (C of O) would be issued on Tuesday next week to the deserving shop-owners who have fulfilled the relevant requirements.


Secretary to the State Government and Coordinating Commissioner, Dr. Ugbala Kenneth Igwe, made this disclosure in a meeting with the SA on SDGs and Market Development, Hon. Mrs. Ngozi Obichukwu, Permanent Secretary, SDGs and Market Development, Hon. Ken. Uhuo, management staff of SDGs and Market Development, stakeholders of Ebonyi Rice Mill Industry as well as leadership of the International Market, in Abakaliki.


“I am particularly very happy that our wonder working Governor has fulfilled his promise to the traders and shop owners at the St. Margaret Umahi International Market by signing the C of Os for those who have made 100% payment of the shops, warehouses in lots 1 to 4 and the Lounge in lot 5. By the grace of God, between now, and next week, formal flag off will be done”, he said.


Dr. Ugbala further said that the move will douse the tension, opposition and rumour mongering from those bent on discrediting the unrelenting dispositions of Umahi led-government in making Ebonyi State the economic hub of South East region.


“Most of the people have been romouring that the shops they bought would be revoked by the end of our administration, that that was why our government withheld the release of C of Os. I think that this action will prove them wrong as everybody who has paid 100% will receive C of O”, he emphasized.


He appreciated the new government functionary in charge of the market for her zeal, passion and commitment to duty and promised to work with her to realize the vision of the Governor in establishing the market.


In addition, he introduced Dr. Mrs. Ngozi Obichukwu to the leadership of International Market, Stakeholders Rice Mill Industry and spelt out her jurisdiction as the person in charge of all the markets in Ebonyi State and urged the market people to give her the maximum cooperation.


In her remarks, Dr. Mrs. Ngozi Obichukwu, pledged her unalloyed support in ensuring that the vision of the Governor in establishing the market was realized and promised to maintain decency and unbroken record of transparency in the discharge of her statutory functions.


Local Government Area Council Chairmen who have not collected, filled and submitted their forms was appealed to do so for the interest of easy of doing business in the international market. Similarly, traders of the Computer Village, Lagos State, who had paid one hundred million naira into the State Government account for the purchase of shops at the international market was called for to collect their shops and commence full business operation in the market.
