I was in Afikpo yesterday with Chinese investors to ascertain the existence of huge coal deposits in echara mgbom, amamgbala, Unwana, Edda. I went to Uburu also to do same confirmation on lead zinc. Am on my way now to wase, plateau state to visit a lead plant in operation, the type His Excellency wants in Ebonyi state. His Excellency, Engr. David Nweze Umahi FNSE, FNATE is passionate and highly committed to exploitation, exploration and developing the solid mineral sub sector in a large scale.
This might be his reason for appointing me in the first place. An experienced civil engineer, petroleum engineer, and well trained environmental engineer, am sure to meet the expectations of His Excellency and Ebonyians in this sector. We are indeed very lucky to have a visionary leader like Engr David Nweze Umahi as our Governor in a time like this.
