I remember vividly in 2009 when I applied to sit for JAMB and how hard it was for me when I discovered that I had to travel all the way from Delta state to Ikom in Cross River State.
God willing we got there safely and after exams we headed back to Delta state which happens to be my base as at that time.
The driver was somehow convinced to take an alternative route from Cross River state through Ogoja to Abakaliki connecting Enugu, Onitsha to Delta.
Behold Abakaliki the supposed Ebonyi state capital. The whole place was so dusty and under developed.
It was such that when a fellow who knows me very well asked me out of curiosity “ is this your state capital “ I could have denied not having anything to do with Abakaliki and Ebonyi state at large but then I summon up the courage and owned my DUSTY STATE CAPITAL.
Now my question is this, what if 2009 happens to be today?
HEAR ME NOW , when people write a ‘thank you messages’ to the extraordinary man of great developmental stride, a man who has the love of our dear state at heart...please don’t come to my inbox and ask me why do I keep praising a man for merely doing his job ?
Umahi is #IronGate and he deserves all the praises for all he has been able to achieve with little federal allocation.
Thank you #IronGate !!!
