Hazel Oyeye Onou, popularly known as Whitemoney, the winner of Big Brother Naija Season 6, has praised Governor David Umahi’s infrastructural transformation of Ebonyi State.
The `Big Brother Naija` reality star made the remarks during a courtesy visit to the Governor on Wednesday at Ochoudo Centenary City in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.
Whitemoney was in the state for a show and was taken aback by the transformation he witnessed while touring the state. According to the musician:
“One thing I like about Ebonyi State is the road network. It’s amazing. I never had the opportunity to explore the state in the magnitude I did today.
“Your Medical School, I don’t know if it is human beings that built that thing or machines because the structure is beyond human comprehension. I have never seen that kind of structure in Nigeria, I mean it, I am jealous.”
“I will urge the Media, the Media Houses in Ebonyi State, project Ebonyi State, it is not being projected the way it should. Everything I saw today, the Science Lab, chemistry lab, physics lab and so forth are too foreign.
“And I heard that it is Ebonyi people that built them This is amazing, I have never seen this kind of structure in Abuja, I have never seen it, this is the first place and I am grateful to be part of this.”
In response, Gov Umahi said, “You are a very humble person. I want to thank you for what you said about our modest achievements. All I can say is that everything we are doing first is the grace of God. Two, is the determination of people here to rewrite our history, the unfortunate position we were forced into.
“And the selfless services of the men and women you see here and some that are not here. Ithink you are an honest man and somebody who is happy with good things. Congratulations once again.”
