Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi has urged government officials to be committed in order to secure a better future for the state.
Umahi gave the advice on Wednesday in Abakaliki while marking his wife’s 49th birthday.
The governor, while addressing government officials including commissioners, expressed optimism that the state would develop when officials give their best.
He said even in the face of obvious difficulties, development could still be achieved if officials were dedicated.
“Let us work together to achieve success and secure better future for the state,” Umahi said.
Umahi thanked God for the life of his wife, Rachael, and the achievements she had made in reaching out to women and children through her pet project, “Family Succour and Upliftment Foundation’’.
He also described her as passionate and accommodating.
The deputy governor and the speaker, in their separate speeches, described Mrs Umahi as a tolerant builder. (NAN)
