The lawmaker representing Ikeduru/Mbaitoli Federal Constituency of Imo State in the House of Representatives, Amarachi Amadi, has called on the people of the state to ensure that the governor of the state, Hope Uzodinma is re-elected during next month’s governorship election in the state.
The 30-year-old federal lawmaker while speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting he organised on Friday to give an account of performance within four months in office and to fulfil his electioneering promises, pointed out that the best thing that would happen to the state presently was to have Uzodinma reelected as the governor of the state.
Amadi said that the governor had done well in infrastructure, provision of jobs, prompt payment of salaries and pensions, and lifting of the education, health and agricultural sectors, among others.
The youthful lawmaker said that among all the governorship candidates, Uzodimma had more capacity and experience to move the state forward.
He said that the governor was doing well to tackle insecurity and deepening democracy in the state.
To support Uzodimma’s reelection project, Amadi donated 14 branded sienna vehicles to coordinators across the federal constituency, saying that the biggest project was to have Uzodimma reelected as governor on November 11.
He said that the electoral ward in his federal constituency that delivers the highest number of votes for the All Progressives Congress at the November 11 governorship election in the state, would have the Zonal Intervention Project worth over N100m captured in the federal budget cited in that ward.
He said ‘Please vote for the governor come November 11 governorship election in Imo State. Our governor has done well in his first tenure in office. He has done well in job creation, provision of infrastructure, tackling of insecurity and lifting our major sectors like education, agriculture, health and tourism.
‘To support this project, I am donating 14 branded Siena vehicles to the coordinators. This is to give impetus to the reelection bid of our governor in our federal constituency.
‘Also, any ward in our federal constituency that delivers the highest number of votes come November 11, will have the Zonal Intervention Project which is worth over N100m captured in the federal budget cited in that ward. We will do it.’
The lawmaker also rewarded electoral wards and voting units that gave him the highest number of votes during his election last February and March
He provided brand-new motorcycles to each of the wards in the federal constituency which gave him the highest number of votes in the last National Assembly election.
The wards in Mbaitoli Local Government Area included: Amaike, Ezinihitte, Ogbaku, Afara/Eziama, Ogwa 1 and 2, Orodo A and B, Umunoha/Azara, Ifekala, Ubomiri and Umuagwu/Umunwaoha.
