ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu inaugurated a road and a new government house when he arrived Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital, for his campaign rally.
Tinubu was received by Governor David Umahi, members of the State Executive Council (Exco), state and national legislators from the state, traditional rulers, stakeholders of the party, and a huge crowd of party faithful and supporters.
The former Lagos State Governor immediately inaugurated the new Government House and the dualized road built by the Umahi administration.

He said the people of Ebonyi are known for their determination, courage and independence of mind which enable them to achieve great feats wherever they find themselves.
He said: “Umahi is an accomplished leader who has built others. He has done well. It is a joy to be here to witness progress and development.
“I know Ebonyi for their determination, courage and independence of mind to do good things and I have seen many signs of the developmental strides of this administration as I was coming in.”
The APC presidential candidate was billed to hold a meeting with party stakeholders last night and was expected to attend a gala organized by the State government in his honour.
