His words:

"It is correct that Governor Umahi’s administration has constructed more than 10 flyovers, there are 13 flyovers and 10 of the flyovers are double, which means that we have a total of 23 flyovers. One of the flyovers is 30 span, about 500m while another one has 6 entries and exits.
"However, it should be understood that these flyovers are just a part of many other infrastructural, economic and educational transformations that are ongoing in Ebonyi State as the state takes pride in building the biggest and arguably the best and most beautiful Shopping mall in Nigeria - we call it the microcosm of the macrocosm of the Dubai Mall, the biggest and most beautiful international market that is fully deployed, the best and most beautiful University of Medical Sciences and hospital, an ongoing outstanding international airport, over 600 roads constructed on 8 inches concrete pavement, ongoing construction of an Olympic stadium, regular payment of civil servants, massive empowerment for the youths, farmers and widows; massive care for the less privileged, jobs creation and employment, security of lives and property, etc."

Nwaze noted that nothing has been done by Umahi’s administration that depicts any form of segregation of any zone or council area.

According to him, the governor believes in Ebonyi as a state and not a segmented one. He added:

"As the larger we are in unity, the better. This is equally his believe in Nigeria - a one united Nigeria."

Nwaze noted it is best to say Ebonyi state that was the rejected stone is becoming the chief cornerstone as no stone is left unturned under Umahi.

Ebonyi can never be part of Biafra previously reported that Umahi declared the state will never be part of the proposed Biafra nation by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

According to Governor Umahi, Ebonyi state was better in a fair and equitable Nigeria.

He made the statement at the Ecumenical Centre, Abakaliki, on Thursday, January 13, during a reception organised for him after declaring his presidential bid in Abuja.
