Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma says President Muhammadu Buhari will visit the state on Thursday, September 9.
Uzodinma disclosed this while addressing newsmen at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri, on Saturday.
The Governor, who spoke upon his return from an official trip to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, said that the President would commission some “significant projects” executed by his administration.
According to Uzodinma, I visited Abuja to “address some political matters and some critical issues that are supposed to be handled in Abuja.”
He listed the issues to include getting Federal Government’s assistance on the World Bank programmes on rural roads, ecological programmes, the Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management (NEWMAP) projects and other erosion control issues.
“While in Abuja, I secured approval for President Muhammadu Buhari to visit Imo on Thursday, Sept. 9, to commission some significant projects put together by the Shared Prosperity Administration.
“More to that, Imo has been able to attract additional support from Mr President on management of some ecological problems in the state,’’ he said.
