Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State says his visit to Abia was to tap from the ingenuity of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, adding that his state government will partner with Abia, in the areas of Commerce, Internal Revenue Mobilization, Peace and e-Governance.

Umahi  is currently on a 3-day working visit in Abia State.

Speaking at the Abia State Executive Council Chambers after being received by Governor Ikpeazu and his team, Governor Umahi said they were in the state for a number of reasons which includes to tap from the ingenuity of the Abia Governor in commerce, internal revenue Mobilization, Peace and e-Governance.

"We are here to tap from you, your ingenuity in commerce, your ingenuity in internal revenue mobilization, your ingenuity in governance, your ingenuity in peace and e-governance in the State, " He said

According to Umahi, Abia has made a lot of positive news, especially in the area of Made in Abia products and Ebonyi would be pleased to tap into that, while also calling on Governor Ikpeazu to support his state to succeed just like Abia is succeeding.

He also commended the Abia State Governor for his infrastructure development strides, noting that it's not easy to govern a very enlightened state like Abia and yet focus and push forward with many people oriented programs that are visible to all.

Umahi applauded the governor's relationships with security agencies in the maintenance of peace, cordial relationship with Abia Workers as well as his support for the presidency without regards to partisan differences.

The Ebonyi state Governor described Governor Okezie Ikpeazu as a governor who is more interested in the development of his state, as against political pursuits, adding that it is indeed an honour to have Ebonyi in Abia.

I remember a few months ago when we were conceptualizing the Osisioma interchange, I went to Governor Umahi and was bold to inform the public through the press that I went to Ebonyi to learn how to build flyover bridges"

Ikpeazu who described the visit as a reunion of brothers said there's more to learn from Ebonyi and extended his hand of fellowship to the people of Ebonyi in whatever form necessary. "We are one people, as brothers and sisters and when one is lifted the other is also lifted".
