The Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu,

has paid a surprise visit to Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi at his country

home in Uburu, Ohaozara Local Government Area.
Neither Onu nor Umahi spoke to the press after the visit

which was seen by a large gathering at the Umahi compound ass ending a

seemingly political animosity between the two Uburu-born politicians.

The governor belongs to the Peoples Democratic Party while

Onu, a former governor of the old Abia State, is a member of the All

Progressives Congress.
The Caretaker Committee Chairman of Ohaozara LGA , Justice

Ogbonna, described the visit  as  a sign of peace and unity in Uburu community.

''The visit has put to rest the peoples' insinuation that

Dr. Onu and our governor are not enjoying good relationship, forgetting that

both of them come from the same community'', the council chairman  said.
