Video: Gov Umahi Displays Expertise, Lectures Engineers At Project Sites



The Ebonyi State Governor, Engr. David Umahi on Sunday displayed his expertise as he supervised major projects around the state.

Umahi who opted to the dry-erase board, to clarify points to site Engineers simplified his points to the surprise of other aides.

According to Francis Nwaze, Umahi’s
Special Assistant to the Governor on
Media and Publicity; “The Governor has a history of being detailed in all activities and happenings in all the construction sites in his State. This is as a result of his routine inspection of all ongoing projects in the state to ascertain the level of completion, quality and ensuring that specifications are not compromised’

“Testimonies abound that Mathematics and Physics remain his Alpha subjects as he always comes out of his exams in Excellent grades”

“On Sunday, January 17th, 2021, the governor inspected some projects in the South Senatorial zone of the state which includes; the ongoing Ugwu Iyere flyover, the dualization of Okposi-Amasiri road, the Ivo bridge, ongoing construction of Low-income housing estate, the industrial cluster, etc. But he observed a slight construction error caused by the ignorant of the site engineers at the ongoing construction of Ebonyi State College of Medicine (School of Excellence) and he needed to correct and teach the Engineers how to detect the error and prevent it before proceeding”

“To the astonishment of all that gathered, he headed for his ‘Air Line’ and a measurement instrument and began the lecture which was now extended to both the Supervisors, site Engineers and the contractors”


Mr Nwaze further said;

“Below were some of the conversations that took place during the practical class: “I want everybody here to learn this. It is used to ascertain the water level… With this, many errors can be cleared”.

“Is it okay? Take it up a little. Have you marked your end? Take it to the other one. Lock your own. Bring both of them closer. Are there bubbles in it?”

“The Governor commenced with the practical and ended with his marker on the whiteboard”

“Ebonyians are blessed to have Umahi as their Governor as he has turned the State into construction sites”
