Ebonyi State Governor, Engr David Umahi, CON, has announced plans to appoint 1300 liason officers across the 13 Local government areas of the State.  An equal number will also be engaged at the state level.

This he said would introduce fresh blood in the affairs of the State, and act as catalyst for further rural integration in governance.

The Governor made the announcement Sunday while speaking in an interdenominational Church service held at the Government House Chapel, Abakaliki.

He maintained that his administration will not relent in repositioning the youths for leadership in the State through various kinds of empowerment, employment  and mentorship.

Governor Umahi further hinted that the State Government would be reaching out to Ebonyians in Lagos, Aba,  Anambra, Owerri and Abuja in another phase of its ongoing empowerment programmes.

"We will be doing empowerment for our brothers and sisters in Lagos, Anambra, Aba and Abuja in our next phase."

The Governor who announced that the take over process of the David Umahi University of Health Sciences Uburu, would be completed in January 2023, charged admission seekers to take advantage of the ongoing admission processes to enroll in the Institution.

"Admissions is going on in David Umahi Federal University of Health Sciences.

"Let me say that there is a lot of miracles in that University and the School fees has been reduced."

On the ongoing construction of the Ebonyi International Airport, Governor Umahi announced that the facility would  be ready for flight operations in January, 2023.

He expressed satisfaction with the level of immediate and projected employment opportunities offered by the University and the airport to Ebonyi State in particular and Nigeria in general.
"At the last count, we have employed over 1000 people in the university.

 "We will pay their salaries till the end of December.

"From January everything there will be Federal."

"Now on the Airport employment, people are submitting applications but we will consider Ebonyians first. That employment is ongoing."

On the forthcoming general elections, Governor Umahi expressed optimism that the APC would win all its elections in Ebonyi State. He  urged the Governorship Candidate of the Party, Right Honourable Francis Nwifuru,  to remain focused as God would grant him victory.

He also admonished him to activate prayers across the 13 local government areas of the State, maintaining that those for the party are greater in number than its opposers.

The Governor while announcing his determination to pay up all outstanding gratuities and pensions of retirees before the end of his administration, maintained that he would be making approvals for promotion and conversion of Local Government Staff soon.

Earlier, the Chaplain of Government House Chapel, Pastor Eunice Oyeyemi admonished Christians to always heed to counsels from God in order to remain in touch with their makers.

"The significance of God's word in the life of a Christian can not be overemphasized, God's word is very important because that is the only thing that can guide us. When God guides you on what to do, then you have to be careful to carry out that responsibility according to his words.

"God can never lead man into errors, he can not contradict himself.
"He is not the author of confusion. In God, there is safety."
