Buhari made the announcement late Monday, November 13, 2017 saying he hopes to have a two-day working visit to the two states.
He also reiterated his promise to the leaders of the region that his administration would not discriminate against any part of Nigeria.
“Tomorrow I will begin a 2-day visit to Ebonyi and Anambra states. Let me reiterate my words to Southeast leaders who visited me at the State House last month: My administration will not discriminate against any part of Nigeria.
“I will again assure the people of the southeast that we are investing in infrastructure projects that are of critical importance to the region: the Second Niger Bridge, the East-West Road, the coastal rail, power projects – these and more will benefit the region and unlock economic potential.
“We are collaborating with the Chinese government to deliver these projects, and have taken very seriously our counterpart funding obligations.
“I look forward to my visit, and to continuing to work to ensure that every part of Nigeria benefits from our programmes and policies,” he said.
The report quoted Daily Sun as stating that apart from Imo state that is controlled by the APC in the Souteast, the four other states are controlled by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
