Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has admitted that with his Supreme Court victory over his opponent, Emeka Ihedioha, people in the state are expecting miracle from his government, and that he is ready to fulfill their dreams.
The Governor who spoke to newsmen today, March 3, shortly after the Supreme Court dismissed the petition of Emeka Ihedioha who was challenging the earlier judgment of the apex Court, said: “our people will expect miracle because I know I have a vision and that vision is a well cut out vision that will develop our state, bring prosperity, development and ensure good and long life for our people.”
The Governor reiterated his resolve to take the state to the next level and called on all Imo sons and daughters, both at home and abroad, to contribute their quota to the development of the state.
Governor Uzodinma also called on his opponents to accept what the faith had had for them, saying: “in this business, you must show the spirit of sportsmanship. It’s not every time you win, it’s not every time you lose. When you win, you carry the losers along; when you lose you follow those that won. My plea to my opponents is for them to bring their ideas; let us team up and create a synergy that will develop Imo State and bring succour to our people.”
Governor Uzodinma said that time has come for the APC to make sustained impact in the Southeast region.
“APC is in all the five states of the South East, but Imo is the only state with a Governor of APC extraction. I will improve on the status quo by doing things that will impress the people through persuasion, conviction and dialogue. I’ll go on a political evangelism to convert people of the South East to join the National party.
