On Wednesday, Buhari will also visit Anambra, another southeastern state where a governorship election is set to take place on Saturday amid threats of violence by secessionists. I thank you all.

THE Ebonyi State police command, on Monday, warned the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and political parties' supporters against disruptive acts during President Muhammadu Buhari's visit to the state today.

Ebonyi State Commissioner of Police, Mr Titus Lamorde, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abakaliki, the state capital.

He will also be conferred with two traditional chieftaincy titles by traditional rulers in the state before rounding off the event with a dinner later in the night.

"Enyioma 1" means My Number 1 Good Friend, and "Ochioha Ndi Igbo 1" means Overall Leader Number 1 of the Igbo people.

He also unveiled the Statue of Dr. Akanu Ibiam and also laid the foundation stone for Ebonyi City Mall, foundation stone for President Muhammadu Buhari Flyover Bridge/Road Tunnel.

Earlier, former Governor of the state, Chief Sam Egwu, on behalf of Ebonyi Elders, appealed for more federal presence in the state, particularly the conversion of College of Education Ikwo to Federal College of Education.
