BY PRINCELY ONYENWE, IMO
The length and breadth of the political circle in Imo state were agog since the change of administration from PDP Emeka IHEDIOHA to APC Hope UZODINMA on whose governance is better measured than the other.
Even the former governor Rochas Okorocha’s opposing GROUPS are foisting their weight to drown the APC government without recourse to the level of decay his administration has done to Imo state.
Imo people are furious over the type of governance going on in the state until Senator Hope Uzodinma came onboard as the governor of the state.
And since his inception, Imo can testify the changes so far recorded all over the state amidst serious oppositions.
It is therefore the wish of the people to see GOVERNOR Hope Uzodinma surpass his predecessors while looking unto God to touch the minds of Imo Politicians to form a good front to Improve the state.
In his submission, Sir collins UGHALAA has maintained that the previous governors were involved in UNSERIOUS travels and SUB-STANDARD projects than the Hope Uzodinma’s administration.
He stated that “IF AFTER ONE YEAR AND SIX MONTHS UZODIMMA WAS AWAY FOR JUST 25 DAYS, THE OUSTED GOVERNOR IHEDIOHA WASTED ALOT OF HIS TIME TRAVELING IN HIS 7 MONTHS IN OFFICE?
He however hinted that the opposition, especially, supporters of the PDP have, in the last couple of days, been in the habit of calling out Governor Hope Uzodimma for the few days he has spent in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, on a working visit, which is just 50 minutes away from Imo by flight.
UGHALAA frowned at their propaganda which he said is frivolous and false.
In his words, “their complaints are obviously aimed at smearing the Governor’s hard-earned reputation.
“If not, why did they not make a count of how many days and millions of Naira lavished by Emeka Ihedioha in overseas trips from Imo between the time of his election, swearing-in and his ouster as a Governor on Tuesday, January 14, 2020.
The analyst took his time to compare and contrast the period of travails made by both governors and wish our readers to openly take a critical look AT IHEDIOHA’S ABROAD TRAVEL HISTORY WITHIN 8 MONTHS (April 2019 to December 2019)
“April 14th, 2019 – London.
May 2019 – Germany.
June 20, 2019 – Russia.
June 26, 2019 – France.
Nov 7th, 2019– Turkey.
September 2019 – USA.
Dec. 12th, 2019 – USA.
He further stated that “In less than one year, Ihedioha spent half of the time as Imo Governor gallivanting outside Nigeria.
“Unlike him, Uzodimma did not go far and has remained within touching distance UGHALAA said.
When asked, why GOVERNOR UZODINMA visits Abuja than engaging in Foreign trips, UGHALAA said, “the Federal Capital Territory, the seat of power. And if you want to get more for your people back home as Governor, you need to be where the discussions are made. You need to meet those that matter. You need to get things work”
So what is the fuss about?
“What we see is bitter opposition. No more, no less. UGHALAA frowned.
