"Our 2018 Budget includes many strategic projects for the region in the roads, power, agriculture and other sectors".

"We are collaborating with the Chinese government to deliver these projects, and have taken very seriously our counterpart funding obligations".

Buhari is expected to visit Anambra, a key IPOB dominated state, on Wednesday ahead of Saturday's governorship elections.

"I also unveiled the statue of a great Nigerian, Dr. Akanu Ibiam, who had a notable record for his humanitarian services to the people which included free primary education, which will continue to be an inspiration to all".
