A prominent Igbo multi-billionaire and renowned Oil Magnet, Arthur Eze, has donated over N1 billion, for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, in 2019.
This came a few weeks, after the South-East Leaders dumped President Buhari, and endorsed the Presidential Candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar.
He also donated N250 million to the Traditional Rulers in Ebonyi State.
First largess of N50 million was given the Monarchs, at Abaomege Community, in Onicha Local Government Area, where he flagged off the construction of overhead bridge, and later announced N200 million, at Akanu Ibiam International Conference Centre, Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.
Eze, who was recently appointed as the Chancellor of Ebonyi State University, was also in the State to perform the groundbreaking for the construction of New Cruise Housing Estate, in Abakaliki.
He lauded the Ebonyi State Governor, Davi Umahi, for his developmental strides in the State, even as he urged the people to support him for a second term.
“Ebonyi State is looking beautiful now. There is no State in the South-East that is like Ebonyi State now. It has the best roads”, Eze said
