BY PRINCELY ONYENWE,IMO
Today, the Senate President, Distinguished Senator Ahmed Lawan and his Colleagues are physically present to witness the harvest of these roads which were done within our one year in office.
However, REMARKS BY GOVERNOR HOPE UZODIMMA AT THE COMMISSIONING OF ROADS BY THE SENATE PRESIDENT ON FRIDAY APRIL 9TH 2021 was highly assuring.
It gives me a very great joy to address Imo people again today as we commission yet another road project in our March to uplift the Infrastructural base of the state with the concomitant leap in economic and social development.
A few weeks ago, our great Leader President Muhammadu Buhari flagged off the commissioning of the roads.
Last tuesday, the Vice President also honoured us with his presence to commissioned Dick Tiger road and Dick Tiger Street. The visit of the Senate President as the head of the legislature is significant because it shows the synergy that exists in the APC government between the executive and the legislature.
For us in Imo State, we are lucky to have these heavyweights as our friends, meaning that our requests from the centre shall be treated expeditiously.
Beyond that, however, the shared prosperity agenda of our administration encourages collaboration with sister governments and other arms of government to ensure the rapid development of our state.
It is unfortunate that some detractors through their untoward actions in the last few days have tended to slow down the activities of our government. But nothing can actually stop us from getting to our destination. Our destination is to make Imo a better place for all residents while providing basic amenities and services as well as deepening democracy generally. We are more than ever resolved to implement faithfully our programme of rehabilitation, reconstruction and recovery.
As you are aware, this Government remains committed to making the welfare of the Imo man and woman its top priority. That explains the roads revolution being witnessed in the state.
Because we appreciate that some of our founding fathers did their best to lay the foundation for the sustainable development of Imo State, it is indeed my privilege to recognise and honour the memory of one of them, His Excellency Senator Evan Enwerem, former Senate President and former governor of Imo State, by naming this road after him….. Henceforth, the road shall be known and called Chief Evan Enwerem Road to the glory of God
Indeed we have come to serve and to set things right, It is now my pleasure to invite His Excellency, the President of the Senate, to commission the road, named after his predecessor to the glory of God and service to mankind.
Thank you all and God bless
Sen. Hope Uzodimma
Governor, Imo State
