"The leaders raised several concerns on the condition of roads and other infrastructure in the region and I want to assure that we will deliver on all our promises".

"I also commend the state governor for his numerous infrastructural strides of which I have commissioned some projects he initiated", he said.

The welcome also came with 2 Chieftaincy titles: Enyioma 1 of Ebonyi, which I am told means Trustworthy friend of Ebonyi; & Ochioha Ndigbo, which means Leader of Igbo people. I thank you for this honour and warm reception.

On arrival in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, President Buhari inaugurated a number of road projects, including two Flyovers on the section of the African Trans-Saharan Highway that runs between Enugu and Cameroon. I thank you for this honour and kind gesture.

"Such an act of accommodation is what translates a mere leader to a great father of the Nation", he said.
