Umahi to employ 5,000 civil servants
Gov. David Umahi has said that the Ebonyi state government will recruit at least 5,000 civil servants and empower 10,000 residents across the state.
Umahi, who stated this in Abakaliki when signing the 2022 appropriation bill into law, also stated that the state House of Assembly is always critical of his policies and so cannot be classified as a rubber stamp.
Contrary to popular belief, he stated that the House is well-versed in the art of legislating.
He said: “Anyone who thinks otherwise can go and try them and get floored.
“The members are committed to moving the state forward and prepared at all times to make sacrifices, including calling off their recess anytime their attention was needed.
Umahi said the state government would ensure the completion of its mega projects in 2022.
The projects included the airport, stadium, flyovers and roads, amongst others.
“We intend to make the state university move to a one campus structure to enable the new University of Aeronautics to use the Presco campus as temporary site.
“The new University for Information Communication Technology will also use the College of Agricultural Sciences campus as temporary site,” the governor said.
Umahi also said that the government would employ at least 5,000 civil servants and empower 10,000 citizens from various sectors of the state.
The Speaker of the house, Francis Nwifuru, commended the governor for ensuring the prudent management of the state’s resources.
“We are happy to report that the 2021 budget had over 70 per cent implementation, which had helped in the overall development of the state.
“We interfaced with relevant government agencies in reviewing the budget and would always collaborate with other arms of government to make the state better,” Nwifuru said.
The state government appropriated N145.4 billion for the fiscal year.
