May Imo win, FCC Jones prophesied as he praises Governor Hope Uzodinma for the numerous economic benefits accrued to Imo State as a result of his partnership with the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government. The recent being the approval for dredging of Orashi River into the Atlantic Ocean.

In the spirit of camaraderie, I had to help FCC Jones with the above paragraph because he has been busy with jamborees and as such, has no time to comply with a kind gentleman characteristics which he pledged to in anticipation of failure but was disappointed.

In one of his numerous articles, criticizing the one-day working visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Imo State for project commissioning, FCC Jones acknowledged the quality of the infrastructures built by the 3R Government. He also acknowledged the fact that Ndi Imo broke the barriers of non-state actors and turned up to receive Mr. President.

The opposition spokesman, applauded the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), for building people-oriented projects. However, he expressed fear that with these unprecedented projects and the massive show of love by the people, the All Progressives Congress (APC) will no doubt sweep all positions in the forthcoming 2023 General Elections.

Having identified with the Shared Prosperity and APC’s input in the economic growth of the State, may I bring to FCC Jones, more insight on the President’s visit to Imo State.

With the dredging of Orashi River into the Atlantic Ocean, Imo State will serve as a major economic gateway to the South East and Nigeria at large. A proposed by the 3R Government, Orashi Free Trade Zone for Oil and Gas will be created and with an initial $1.5b foreign investment. I trust Uncle Jones to calculate the multiplier effect of this on our economy.

Less I forget, the federal government in addition to the above also approved the construction of 10MW hydro power generating plant at Otamiri and Nworie river. This is coming after the state government successful increased the water floor into those rivers by constructing a balloon tech to deliver water down to the river.

It will also interest Jones to know that by this approvals, Governor Hope Uzodinma have been able to reposition the State into the mainstream of national economic growth. This is so because hitherto, the plan was to explore the huge gas deposit in Imo State as well as other natural resources and pipe it out. But the intervention of Governor Hope Uzodimma has led to the Orashi Free Trade Zone and construction of hydro power generating plant to help FCC Jones and other Imolites diversify their investments.
