Imo Social Contract Group Endorse Uzodimma


Imo Social Contract Group Endorse Uzodimma

 Signs that Governor Hope Uzodimma is heading for coronation rather than elec­tion in November 11 became clearer on Wednesday when a body of key political stake­holders in Imo, operating as Imo Social Contract Group, formally endorsed and ad­opted him as the preferred candidate for the governor­ship election in Imo State.

The adoption which took place at the Landmark Event Centre, New Owerri, saw the members of the ISCG speak­ing up on the Governor’s ster­ling performance in the past three years and nine months of being in the saddle.

The Convener of the group, Dr. Fabian Ihekweme, told the audience that the members have resolved to challenge themselves through a “social contract platform that guaran­tees sustainable democracy that holds the government not only responsible but accountable.”

He said that the mem­bership of ISCG cuts across people from PDP, APGA, Imo Reality Mass Movement, the Elite Group and others, and that all the members were in agreement that Governor Uzodimma should be en­dorsed and adopted for a sec­ond tenure.

His words: “The decision is born out of the Governor’s germane stride to grow the State’s economy, reduce pov­erty, and create jobs for the development of Imo State.

“The group has seen the need to build public confi­dence around a tested and trusted Governorship candi­date as is found in Governor Hope Uzodimma.”

Dr. Ihekweme noted that “the road revolution, youth empowerment, skills acquisi­tion and technological know-how by the Governor even in the face of insecurity have gone a long way to reform Imo State.”

At the gathering, the mem­bers did not only pass a vote of confidence through a reso­lution, but affirmed, endorsed and adopted Governor Uzod­imma for a second tenure.

They pledged their com­mitment to ensure the Gover­nor gets massive votes from the electorate in Imo State come November 11.

A surprised but grateful Governor Uzodimma in his re­sponse thanked the members for the decision they have taken to join him to rebuild Imo where education, healthcare delivery, road infrastructure and entre­preneurship will thrive.

He said that by coming together, they are helping to build a consensus “where Imo people will be their brother’s keeper and there will be no more violence and destruc­tion in the name of politics.”
