Dr. David Nweze Umahi, FNSE, FNATE, and wife, Her Excellency, Chief Mrs. Rachael Ogonna Umahi (Ogoo Nwanyi), the Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State, Barr. Kelechi Eric Igwe, Ph.D and Wife, the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru, the State Chief Judge, Hon. Justice A. A.

Peter Onyekachi Nwebonyi and indeed, all Ebonyians, on the occasion of this double-barreled celebration of the 59th Independence Anniversary of our great nation, Nigeria, and the 23rd Anniversary of the creation of Ebonyi State.
Your Excellency, Sir, today’s Independence Day Celebration calls for joy and reflection. It is a unique day for celebrating the joy of the freedom associated with the freedom of thought, actions, faith and speech as well as release from the unfavourable grip of our colonial masters, 59 years ago. In the same vein, our freedom and development as a State after our sojourn in different States is quite remarkable today.
It is the celebration of the sovereignty of our fatherland and the celebration of unbeatable strides recorded so far, as a State, especially in the areas of infrastructural development and human capital development.
Your Excellency, Sir, your colossal achievements have led to a spiraling transformation of our dear State in consonance with your campaign promises thus igniting the consciousness on Ebonyians, the gains of good governance as well as astute leadership style.
Your administration has maintained the principles of transparency and inclusiveness, and that remains the best form of government. Our determination is to work in concert with you in nation building to the benefit of our people and realizing your dreams of placing Ebonyi State on the globe and giving it a new footing to serve as a model.
I must also congratulate the good people of Ebonyi State for their exemplary conduct in the past decade in pursuit of those ideals and actions that would strengthen our nation’s economic growth rather than undermine it. Therefore, we must promote peace and unity of our country, Nigeria and eschew disaffection among ourselves or any incidents capable of truncating the unity of our nation and stand firm to ensure her survival.
May I once more offer my best wishes and the assurances of my highest regards to your Excellency.
Engr. Ogbonnaya Abara Obasi.
