Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi has urged the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to provide more developmental grants to states of the country.
Umahi spoke on Tuesday during the National Virtual launch of the USAID Nigeria Accountability, Transparency and Effectiveness–State to State Activity.
“I feel delighted to be part of this virtual launch as Ebonyi government is committed towards good governance anchored on accountability, transparency and prudence.
“This has been achieved despite challenges such as human capital constraints, dwindling resources from oil revenue, devastating effect of COVID-19, insecurity among others,” he said.
Umahi described the project as apt and sought the continued support of development partners in delivering good governance in Ebonyi.
“Ebonyi would collaborate with the agency to make the programme succeed in order to enhance the people’s well-being.
