The Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, expressed appreciation to the President for making a brief stop-over to greet Nigerians living in Enugu state before leaving for Ebonyi. "It is an honour that is well deserved, it has helped us a lot, especially in the area of agricultural revolution", the governor said.

Senator Sam Egwu (PDP-Ebonyi North), a former governor of the state on behalf of the stakeholders, thanked God for restoring the President's health and granting him the strength to work.

Egwu urge the president to ensure that state College of Education, Ikwo, was converted to a federal institution.
