Former Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, on Saturday, expressed joy that his successor, Governor Francis Nwifuru, honours him even after leaving office.

Umahi said this while speaking with newsmen after being conferred with an honorary doctorate by the Ebonyi State University on Saturday in Abakaliki.

According to the Minister of Works, it is not common to hand over to a successor and still be continually honoured by him.
