The governor-elect for Ebonyi state, Engineer Dave Umahi has said his administration will review all ongoing projects in the state, saying that no one will run away with money stolen from the state.

He said that the incumbent governor, Martin Elechi, meant well for the state but that many things happening without his being aware of the true situation such that some persons are suspected to have looted the state.

Umahi, the incumbent deputy governor of the state explained that he would not allow the visions and labour of the forebears of the state go down the drain as occasioned by some projects executors whose main goal was to cheat the people of Ebonyi state.

He spoke on the occasion of his meeting with the state branch of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), in Abakaliki the state capital.

The governor-elect which had earlier disclosed his resolve to investigate the Caretaker Committee Chairmen of the 13 local government councils of the state said he would not condone corruption;

so, he would run an open administration where various stakeholders in the state would participate in major decisions.

Umahi explained that the situation where people were led without their input on issues that touch them is over, noting that even the funds that accrue to the state would be of public knowledge so that everybody, including the workers would be operating from the same page.

He thanked the CAN members for boldly standing for truth and pledged to fulfill the campaign promises he made saying that God who gave him visions would also empower him with the requisite enablement to fulfill them.

Umahi announced that after being sworn in on 29th May 2015 the state government would take off with praying and fasting from May 30th to June 6th 2015.

In his address, the CAN chairman, Rev. Emmanuel Nshii assured the incoming governor that they would continue to pray for his administration and the state urging him to provide a conducive environment for continued cordial relationship between him and the CAN.

He said that they were not in doubt as to his pedigree but advised him to remain guided by the words of God, remarking that his election as the governor was ordained by God long ago.
