Imo Guber: Owerri North Adopt Uzodimma, Urge kinsmen to drop ambition

Four months to the November 11th Governorship election in Imo State, critical stakeholders of Owerri North Local Government Council have thrown their weight behind the re-election of Governor Hope Uzodinma and advised indigenes of the council extraction nursing Governorship ambition to discard this and wait for 2027.

Briefing newsmen at the council headquarters- Orie-Uratta shortly after the inaugural sitting of a High Court Complex at the council constructed by his administration and commissioned by Governor Hope Uzodimma in April this year, the Sole Administrator of the council, Chief Tony Umezuruike, explained that the endorsement was in appreciation of the landmark achievements of the governor in the LGA especially on roads construction and rehabilitation and to pave the way for the emergence of one of their indigenes to take over from him in 2027 in line with the spirit of the Imo Charter of Equity.

Chief Umezuruike who showered encomiums on Governor Uzodinma for making funds available for the completion of the project disclosed that necessary machinery had been installed to replicate the governor’s mantra of “Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, and Recovery”m popularly known as 3Rs in the area.

He said: “We have marshaled out some empowerment programmes for women and indigent children in these areas and I will visit all the 21 autonomous communities in this LGA during the forthcoming women’s August meeting where I will unfold some of our empowerment programmes”.

The SOLAD explained that the court complex built and commissioned was in response to the people’s request to redress the risk and hazard inherent in traveling long distances to obtain legal services, assuring that the court had come to stay and would be sitting regularly from October this year.

He, however, lamented the incessant encroachment on lands belonging to the Council by some unscrupulous elements, boasting that he had recovered the lands encroached/illegally acquired, warning those involved in the encroachment to desist forthwith and that he had recovered those already encroached on.

Enumerating some of his achievements, he said that the security architecture of the council, environmental sanitation, rehabilitation of dilapidated structures, regular payment of salaries and pensions as well as promotion of the general welfare of workers of the council would continue to remain his priority, even as he urged the people of the area to sustain their support to governor Hope Uzodinma to enable them to reap more democracy dividends.
