Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has said that the requests of the people of the state will be ‘treated expeditiously’ by the Federal Government because the state is very good friends with Muhammadu Buhari as well as Senate President Ahmad Lawan.
The governor, who is of the ruling All Progressives Congress as Buhari and Lawan, made this comment on Friday when the Senate President visited Imo to inaugurate some road projects.
Uzodinma named one of the roads after a former Senate President and former governor of the state, the late Evan Enwerem.
At the event, the governor said, ‘Today, the Senate President, Distinguished Senator Ahmed Lawan, and his Colleagues are physically present to witness the harvest of these roads which were done within our one year in office.
‘A few weeks ago, our great Leader President Muhammadu Buhari flagged off the commissioning of the roads. Last Tuesday, the Vice President also honoured us with his presence to commissioned Dick Tiger road and Dick Tiger Street.
‘The visit of the Senate President as the head of the legislature is significant because it shows the synergy that exists in the APC government between the executive and the legislature.
‘For us in Imo State, we are lucky to have these heavyweights as our friends, meaning that our requests from the centre shall be treated expeditiously’ he concluded.
