Why Ebonyi Gov, Dave Umahi, Is Called ‘The Roadmaster’

dave umahi

For those who have been to Ebonyi State in the last 10 months, they will attest to the fact that the state is gradually wearing a new look under Governor David Nweze Umahi, fondly called DNU.

From the metropolis to the rural areas in the state, the action governor, as some locals love to call him, has ensured they have a taste of good governance.

No wonder some residents and citizens of Ebonyi, who live outside the state, have started clamouring for him to accept staying for eight years.

This is because his less than one year in office has brought massive change to the state, which was carved out from Enugu State.

Umahi has transformed the state capital dramatically with massive road rehabilitation and construction.

Other areas which used to be hell to get to or navigate are now wearing new looks.

The governor has also urged residents to notify him of any road that needs to be retouched.
