Nwaji said she was poised by the leadership ingenuity and innovativeness of the governor, Engr. Dave Umahi, who has assisted the college to record a great breakthrough, in creating waste to wealth projects.

She noted that her recent travel to UN conference in Washington DC, has helped the college to think in the direction of developing the state with technology’s.

“I love most of the things we have produced, especially that of the electric tricycles and vehicles. It is echo friendly. It has zero carbon dioxide emotion. The earth is polluted and the governor is taking a global action against climate change and we will support him,” she stated.

Nwaji said that Ebonyi vocational college is the only school in Nigeria that has made climate change as a compulsory subject, with the purpose to curtailing the damages and other havoc/ disasters posed on citizens of the state as a result of climate change.

She applauded the state governor for his numerous achievements and doggedness in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 in the state, especially in providing solar panels and 500 Kg generating plants that enables the college to have constant power supply.

She commended him particularly for partnering the college to produce over 80,000 facemask and sanitisers to assist the people of the state.
