“This building is identical with what we do here in Ebonyi .You can see the quality of the building, you can see the finishing. I can declare that this project is fit to be in Ebonyi state.
“I was talking with a group of people and I told them I want to make a permanent Secretary on federal projects . And they asked me , can you stop a Federal projects? .And i said I can . You too. And anybody can stop any project whether it is federal,state or anywhere. It is your money,it is my money . We all have the right to stop a bad or badly executed projects.
“My former senator, I learnt the court has removed him, was doing a bad solar light projects that was not inline with what we do. I had to stop him. And I called the minister and told him thag the man was doing a bad job,he laughed and and asked me to send him a petition.”
