The Imo State Commissioner for works and front line appointee in the shared prosperity government of Governor Hope Uzodinma, Barr. Ralph Nwosu has said that the opposition parties to the present Administration have chosen to adopt propaganda antics in attacking the government of the day in Imo with the sole aim to discredit the good jobs the government is doing, because they are surprised that the APC led government of Senator Hope Uzodinma is achieving above their expectation thereby making good history.

Barr. Nwosu made the disclosure when he played host to members of “APC media support group”, Imo State chapter who paid him a solidarity visit. 

According to him, the present government has done pretty well on every administrative estimation, considering the duration in question despite that it inherited baggages of problems, yet the administration had since hit the ground running, out of determination and zeal of the leader to leave a lasting or sustainable legacy. Governor Hope Uzodinma, he stated is desirous of making Ndi Imo enjoy the dividends of Democracy. Today by the grace of God every sector is being given serious attention.

“On Roads construction where my ministry is supervising, works commenced in earnest. Also by the grace of God, some roads have been completed and commissioned. While works are ongoing in many others because road construction undergoes some stages such as clearing, sand filling, dredging of gutters/culverts, stoning, priming before asphalting which is the final stage, but due to heavy rainfall, works were slowed down as no contractor would want to be involved in double expenses occasioned by heavy rainfall.

“For instance, construction work at Chukwuma Nwaoha road Owerri had reached advanced stage before the rainfall set in and washed away almost the earth surface and there is no way work could continue there because of flood and whenever job resumes after the raining season, certainly more money would be spent above the estimated project cost, a situation contractors would not like to experience”.

The Commissioner assured Ndi Imo that as soon as the rains are over, construction works will speed-up on our roads as most of the roads would be asphalted as it is the plan of the state government to embark on zero pot holes on our roads.

He however sees the propaganda by the oppositions as an exercise in futility as no amount of propaganda can defeat facts, asserting that it is high time our people began to appreciate good efforts made by those in authority and stop being selfish. They have to make things work since only that would encourage leaders to do more. Lets work for a common goal no matter the party affiliation or who is on the top so that we can move Imo State to the next level because the state is our common heritage”, he pleaded.

Barr. Nwosu who expressed happiness at the visit of the APC media support group said that he is delighted with  the sympathy and support shown by the group in APC and also as participants in the political process in 2019 and assured them that they would never be forgotten. He reminded them that political empowerment/dividend/of democracy have categories and have never finished.

Earlier, the Co-ordinator of the group Comr. Reuben Nwankwo told the Commissioner that they came to celebrate with him and to encourage him for the good jobs he is doing in the ministry and urged him not to relent. He pledged continue support for the shared prosperity government and urged the commissioner not to forget about partnering with them in the scheme of things.
