Uzodinma said this to newsmen in Owerri, through the state Commissioner for Information for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, ahead of Monday’s inauguration of his second term in office.
According to the Commissioner, “In this respect, i want to assure you that every necessary arrangement for a successful swearing in ceremony has been put in place. The more than 100 member committee set up by His Excellency, to oversee the success of the occasion has been working round the the clock to realize a seamless swearing in ceremony.
“Chaired and co-chaired by Senator Chrus Anyanwu and Chief Cosmos Iwu, Secretary to the Government of Imo state, the committee has taken all needful steps to ensure that the occasion is truly memorable.
“Important dignitaries from all over the country and beyond are expected to grace the occasion. Reports we have received from across the 27 local government areas of the state indicate that Imo people are eager to be part of their historic occasion.”
“They are looking up to it with much enthusiasm and great joy. This is understandable given the fact that the people gave the governor an unprecedented massive vote support in the November 11th 2023 election, which saw him winning the 27 local government areas of the state, a feat that has never been recorded in the history of Imo state.”
“So, the pervading mood in the state, amongst the people, is that of joy and high expectations. Because the governor has in the last four years touched on the lives of most Imo people through massive infrastructure provision, youth empowerment ans many other laudable programmes, the people believe that the next four years will be even better for them. So they are expectantly joyous.
“In this new year address at the church service at Omuma, the governor also made it clear that Imo people should expect Action and prosperity as the defining drive of his second tenure. So Imo people should indeed expect that better days are ahead for them in th next four years,”Emelumba said.
