Remember, he failed in some sectors

Don't use the word FAILED, though I don't know about his governance. It is not possible to touch EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE in 4 years due to time and resources. That's where people get it wrong, a governor didn't tar your street doesn't make him incompetent.

That's the strategy Ambode employed, facing the transport sector squarely. That's why this 2 terms need to be stopped. Ambode might have continued with the transport sector.
Now, let Sanwo choose another sector and face it squarely, this doesn't mean he will abandon other sectors.
By the time about 5 governors face different sectors squarely, with time, there will be all-around development.

No cars on ebonyi roads due to excruciating poverty there and the clueless governor is adding insult to injury by building flyover. What an ingenious way of mocking his own ebonyi people.

You are short sighted! This man is preparing them for tomorrow. People like you would wait for traffic gridlock before construction of roads. How old is Ebonyi? What resources do they have? Yet this man could achieve this...Travel to that state and you'll appreciate him. I wish the governor's in my Niger Delta states are this prudent. We would have been living in heaven.

Ebonyi receive lowest allocation from FG, and he was able to achieve all these and still performing, no body is perfect, many states that receives high allocations, IGR including high debt profiles, they couldn't achieve what Gov Dave have achieved and they are owing workers for months, I'm not from Ebonyi, but to rate them, I believe Gov Dave is best hardworking Gov in Nigeria.

His greatest achievement should be changing the fortune and image of an average Ebonyi indigenes who are mostly seen as " Gala and Lacasera " Hawkers across different cities in NIGERIA

Therefore he needs to create avenue for job opportunities for Ebonyi youth

When its come to Ebonyi State, am the right person to tell you everything you need to know. I reside in Abakaliki town which is the capital of Ebonyi State. If possibly the tenure of a Governor seat can be extended to 4th term, I think Engineer Dave Nwaeze Umahi deserve it all over because of his positive contribution for the development of Ebonyi State. Engineer Dave Nwaeze Umahi a.k.a Akubaraoha of Ebonyi State. May the Lord Almighty God continue to be with you and your family for the infastructure development of Ebonyi State.

Dear brother,don't be myopic,when Tha nations capital was moved down to Abuja,the city planners envisioned that in the future to come,Abuja will be over populated like Lagos,that's they increased the road networks,thereby making traffic to be flexible than Lagos,I have visited some states,their roads are so narrow,that's why the governor is doing what he's doing now. As a bachelor,when u have it in mind that u want to marry,u would want to leave your one,or self contain in search of 2bed rooms. So,my brother,think before u make comment,ok. God bless Nigeria

Critical Analysis Of Gov. Umahi's First Term In Office By Wisdom Nwedene (Photos)

Written by Wisdom Nwedene

As Governor David Nweze Umahi's first term in office is set to elapse soon, it is pertinent for me to analyze how well he has done as the Governor of Ebonyi State since 2015-2019 before he enters into the second phase of his administration.

This article is going to base on my findings as a journalist working in Ebonyi State and not just that, as an Indigene of the state.

There is no doubt that Umahi has done a remarkable job when it comes to infrastructure in Ebonyi State and I must commend him for that.

In fact, he has changed the narrative of the state, from "Dust Of The Nation" to indeed, the 'Salt Of The Nation' and even 'Light of The Nation'.

Many people who visited Ebonyi State before Umahi became the Governor of the state can testify that Umahi is indeed a 'workaholic Governor' if they should visit the state now.

But how well has Umahi performed in other sectors?

EDUCATION : Let me first commend Umahi for reconstructing and equipping many schools in the state and also for approving the promotion of the state university staff – a decision that had stalled for years. Elechi's administration failed woefully in this aspect.

Umahi also reduced the school fees of Ebonyi State University Students, although he collected it back from other avenue. Let me commend

I will rate him 6/10.

ROAD CONSTRUCTION : Umahi has performed very well in this aspect. He has completed over 30 roads within the capital city of Abakaliki. He has also rebuilt some federal roads, especially the Afikpo-Abakaliki Road and the Nkalagu Road.

He reconstructed many dilapidated roundabouts and built flyovers which have given the state capital a new look.

I rate him 9/10. Kudos to him.

HEALTH : Umahi has also tried in Health Sector. No wonder he declared emergency in the health sector and began the reconstruction of general hospitals in the state.

He built the first virology centre in the south east from scratch, to reduce Lassa fever deaths. He tried but Elechi performed better than him in this sector.

WORKERS : The workers in the state have been crying over umahi's decision to revert to the old salary structure for workers, from the new structure approved by Elechi.

Every worker in the state has this mindset that Umahi's administration hates them because of this decision. The workers in the state are poorly paid which is not good. He should do better in his second term in this sector.

Let me commend him though for paying workers’ salaries till date.

According to report, workers have received their salaries on for the last three years of him being in office. Also, Salaries are paid before 20th of every month, while those of teachers are paid before the 15th of every month.

I rate him 4/10.

INFRASTRUCTURE : I must say kudos to the governor for a job well done in this sector. He performed extremely well even with the small allocation the state receives every month.

He constructed many flyovers, Ebonyi Tunnel, reconstruction of Margret Umahi international market, State Of The Art Ecumenical Worship Centre, Shopping mall, reconstruction of Pa Ngele Oruta Township Stadium, etc.

In fact, I rate him 9.5/10

AGRICULTURE: Governor Umahi performed very well in this sector equally. In his administration, he poured billions of naira into the sector as soft loans to farmers, targeting expanded rice farming. This can be verified. Just ask any serious farmer in Ebonyi State and he will testify to this.

He also bought parboiling machines for its three rice mills.

I rate him 7/10

In conclusion, I must say kudos to Umahi for achieving these feats but he must correct a lot of things in his administration.

*He must stop the family business which he has been doing since he emerged as the Governor of the state.

*The illegal tax collection currently rampaging the entire must stop. It is very devastating.

*There are Illegal fees going on in the University, Primary School, Secondary School which should be ended.

*Finally, he should treat the workers in the state very well.

First let me commend this Ebonyi state governor for job well-done that have no impact on the life's of his citizens, showing us the overhype flyover and water font roundabouts is way too immature of him when he ought to have shown us evidence of economic growth and the state GDP ratio from when he inherited the state.
Secondly, the people may be celebrating this elephant projects believing that he is the best but what impact those it have in the life's of common man on the street? The amount of money lavished on those projects would change the life's of their youth through skill acquisition. What the people of Ebonyi state need is a sound visionary leadership of which their governor should focus on and drive Ebonyi state economy towards agriculture and untap mineral resources in the State, by so doing will provide job for their citizens who on yearly basis migrate to Anambra to cause nuisance in the city of Onitsha.

In his second term, he should concentrate more on human capital development. Imagine, no state representation in any national sporting event.

No state-sponsored football team. In d last national sport festival, Umahi & Ebonyi state had zero representation.

Lastly, to me , he's done enough for d capital, Abakaliki. In d next four years , he should spread his infrastructural development across d state. Imagine, in a whole local government, no single commercial bank!!!!!

The Governor of Ebonyi State has done very well in the area of infrastructural developments since he came in to office in 2015 but he has killed the civil and public service in the state. More than 40% of the public servants have retired since he became the Governor but no replacement or employment has taken place and these retirees have not been paid their gratuity and other benefits. Promotions and conversions that are meant to take place yearly was conducted once during his tenure. Leave allowances and other entitlements of public servants have never been paid since 2015. There are no furnitures, light, basic facilities and equipments at the state secretariat. The moral of the public service is very low. Generally, the taxation is very high and people are complaining and crying and have resorted to prayer houses for God's intervention. We hope he will hear.

This is pure bitterness. Why are you so bitter with any good thing associated with this prudent Governor?
You left the wicked Governors in other states doing little or nothing to speak evil of a good man.
Kindly note that your bitterness affects you more wink

It's hard to believe Umahi is a governor in the South-East... One of the greatest undoing of the Igbos in this 21st century is having heartless, unrepentant and unpatriotic thieves as leaders: From Governors to Senators...

Ipob, Massob and Ohaneze should sit their asses down, and tell themselves the hard truth: They have failed to groom good leaders.
