Buhari Arrives Abakaliki, Begins Project Commissioning

Politics President Buhari Commences 2-Day Visit To South-East Nigeria

He is also expected to visit Anambra State. Led by the late army major Odumegwu Ojukwu, a bid in 1967 by the mainly Igbo eastern region to secede from Nigeria culminated in a 30-month civil war that ended in Nigeria's favor. I want to assure you that we will deliver on our promises. "Our 2018 budget include many strategic projects for the region in roads, power, agriculture and social sector", the president said.

President Muhammadu Buhari received a warm reception at the Akanu Ibiam International airport in Enugu on Tuesday.

As the President performs the commissioning of projects, the Air Force and military jets were hovering within the vicinity of Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.

He will also be conferred with two traditional chieftaincy titles by traditional rulers in the state before rounding off the event with a dinner later in the night.

President Buhari conferred with the title of Ochioha NdiIgbo 1 by South East traditional council of rulers led by Eze Eberechi Dick during his visit to Ebonyi State on 14th Nov 2017.

Earlier, former Governor of the state, Chief Sam Egwu, on behalf of Ebonyi Elders, appealed for more federal presence in the state, particularly the conversion of College of Education Ikwo to Federal College of Education.
