Buhari in Ebonyi reiterates FG's commitment to roads rehabilitation


President Buhari conferred with the title of Enyioma 1 of Ebonyi by Ebonyi traditional council of rulers led by Eze Charles Mkpuma during his visit to Ebonyi State on 14th Nov 2017.

He heads next to Anambra State where a governorship election is slated to be held on November 18.

He said that his visit to the state was clear demonstration of his administration's strong belief in the unity of Nigeria. "As the most populous country in Africa with over 300 ethnic groups, our diversity is nearly unique among the nations", he said.

"I will not disclose the number of personnel we have drafted for security reasons, but I assure citizens that enough personnel have been deployed across the state to ensure a hitch-free visit".
