A seasoned industrialist and newly elected President of Orlu Recreation club, Engr Achinike Onyeka O’Bright who doubles as councilor for Okporo ward in Orlu LGA legislative council, over the weekend urged Orlu people to support governor Hope Uzodinma whom he described as a goal-getter and by his assessment of Uzodinma, has performed beyond expectation.
Speaking during the event to mark 100 days in office of the Chairman of Orlu LGA Interim Management committee, Nneoma Ifeoma Ndukwu, Onyeka who spoke in his capacity as the Chairman of the occasion averred that Orlu people should come together and support their son who is now governor of Imo State instead of finding fault in every government’s program. According to him, it does not mean that people should not criticize the government of the day but in doing so must be objective.
He added that criticism is good for those in authority as it will cause them to seat up but not when one makes himself an attack dog against the government of the day so much that he sees nothing good from the government. He said that an average Orlu man holds Uzodinma a duty to support him in order for him to succeed.
Onyeka also used the opportunity to thank and extol the IMC chairman for giving the Orlu people purposeful leadership. He said, “the achievement of Ndukwu is celebrated and commended by every discerning mind in Orlu and beyond. We are really blessed to have her as Chairman. It is our wish that she becomes an executive chairman so she can sustain and deepen the course of governance in the Local government area”, he stated.
The occasion was graced by the creme de la creme of Orlu LGA politicians and traditional rulers,all of whom spoke glowingly about Ndukwu.
The high point of the occasion was unveiling of the IMC chairman’s numerous achievements within her first 100 days in office.
