President Muhammadu Buhari has commended Gov. David Umahi, of Ebonyi State, on the quality of projects in the State.
Buhari expressed satisfaction with his performance saying he was not surprised at the standard of work because the two-time governor is an engineer of repute.
The president began his two-day visit to the State with the inauguration of projects at the state-owned King David University of Medical Sciences, Uburu.
The projects included a twin flyover, 12-kilometre dualised federal road from Mbu, Enugu State to Uburu, the University Building and the University Medical Hospital, Facilities and Equipment.
While in Uburu, Ohaozara Local Government Area of the State, the president also inaugurated the Cancer Centre at the King David University of Medical Sciences, built and equipped by the Federal Government.
Umahi, who thanked the president for approving the funding of the Centre, said the facility could rank with other centres around the world.
At the inauguration of the hospital section of the university, the governor thanked the president for acceding to the request of the State government for the Federal Government to take over the running of the teaching hospital.
Also, at the inauguration of the Presidential Lodge at the Muhammadu Buhari International Airport, Onueke, the governor announced that the tarmac and runway of the airport, built with concrete, had attained over 70 percent completion, and would be ready by the end of next month.
The President also inaugurated the 5-kilometre dualised airport road in Onueke, built by the State government as well as the reconstructed St. Margaret Umahi International Market complex and a 750-metre length twin-flyover near the market.
