Uzodinma thanks Imo people as peace returns to state
By Chris Njoku, Owerri
He also thanked them for their ceaseless prayers that resulted in the peace that is being enjoyed once more in Imo State after weeks of security breaches.
The Governor spoke at the Government House Chapel yesterday amid a gathering of Imo leaders from the business, political, religious and traditional institution class, who joined him at the day’s Church Service.
Governor Uzodimma, who described the Imo leaders as partners in progress not only told them that peace had returned to the state but also thanked them and all Imo people for believing in his leadership.
He praised the leaders and, by extension, Imo people in general for the recently concluded visitation by all the 27 local government areas in the State, noting that government had taken note of their demands, both political and non-political, and “will deal with them accordingly.
“I must thank our leaders, captains of industries and all who came in from outside the state, despite their busy schedule, and sacrificed to be part of the local governments’ visitation. I have taken note of the sacrifice and love for our dear state, and promise that we will not disappoint your reasonable expectations.”
However, Governor Uzodimma enjoined the leaders and Imolites to continue to pray for the peace of the state in the belief that “only God can solve our problems in Imo State.”
