He said: “The benefits of the presidential visit will be immense and beneficial for Imo.

“A few days after his departure from Imo, President Muhammadu Buhari’s state visit is still a hot topic in the state.

“For example, there are federal highways that the governor was committed to that aren’t actually state highways, but because of the viability of those highways, he took them with meager funds.
