Imo State governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, has revealed that he has secured approval for President Muhammadu Buhari to visit the state on Thursday, September 9, 2021, to commission some significant projects put together by his administration.
The governor made this revelation on Saturday while speaking with newsmen at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri on arrival from his official trip to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
He informed that he had to embark on the working visit to Abuja to ‘resolve some critical issues that were supposed to be handled in Abuja.’ Such issues, he noted, include but not limited to the World Bank programmes on rural roads, the NEWMAP projects, and other erosion control issues.
Besides, the governor said he ‘used the opportunity to address some political matters.’
His words: ‘The good news is that Imo has been able to attract additional support from Mr. President on management of some ecological problems in the State.’
Speaking on his assignment as the Chairman, APC Campaign Council for the Anambra State governorship election, Uzodimma acknowledged the importance of the responsibility thrust on him by his party and assured that he is doing his best to take the message of what the people stand to gain should they vote APC to win the election scheduled for November 6, 2021.
