President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday reiterated his belief in the unity of the country.

"Let me reiterate my words to Southeast Leaders who visited me at the State House last month: My administration will not discriminate against any part of Nigeria".

President Buhari assured that the South-East zone would be accommodated in Federal Government key projects, notably roads and power, as captured in the 2018 Budget recently presented to the National Assembly.

"We want to thank you for your assistance in areas of agriculture, harnessing of mineral resources among other areas of the state's development".

Buhari noted that his visit to Ebonyi was an affirmation of his government's commitment to achieve a united Nigeria for the benefit of all citizens.


Former Governor of the state, Sam Egwu, commended the president for the recent decision to pay former Biafra Police officers pensions.

After touching down in Enugu, the president proceeded to Abakaliki township stadium in Ebonyi State for the commencement of the tour.

The governors at the airport were Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Dave Umahi (Ebonyi).

He inaugurated projects including the 14.5 kilometre Abakaliki-Afikpo federal highway reconstructed by the state government, two new overhead bridge along the Afikpo-Enugu highway.
