“The state through my ministry will soon have a comparative advantage to compete with the states in the Federation.

“Ebonyi State under Francis Nwifuru will now compete with other states favourably.”
He further applauded the governor for his determination to carry along all stakeholders as a way to foster peace and unity in the state.
