A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress and former chairman of the party for Amakohia/Akwakuma ward in Owerri North L.G.A, Chief Nick Ukawuike (Akusinachi), has extolled Governor Uzodinma who he said has performed excellently and deserves the support and encouragement of Imo people at home and in the diaspora.
Chief Ukawuike, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Suites, an ultra modern relaxation centre located at Egbeda, among other businesses that provide gainful employment for Imo youths, stated this in a chat with journalists at the Akwakuma Bus-stop site of his ultra modern eatery and digital car wash centre that are still under construction.
According to him, “Senator Uzodinma’s commitment and pragmatic approach to governance has restored the confidence of Imo people who felt abandoned by previous administrations”.
“Most of the dilapidated rural link roads that were death traps are presently receiving attention. The official flag off of the construction of the Orlu/Owerri and the Orlu/Okigwe roads that traumatized Imo people and impacted negatively on the socio-economic development of the affected communities and the state at large shows how sensitive he is to the plight of the people”.
“His recent visit to the Imo State University Teaching Hospital to see things for himself and the promise to rehabilitate the facility and ensure that it’s lost glory is restored is also commendable”.
Akusinachi further said that Gov. Uzodinma’s giant strides and passion to reposition the state are enough to earn him the loyalty, support and goodwill of well meaning Imolites at home and in the diaspora to enable him actualize his vision of making Imo State better for all.
Responding to a question, he said, “I am in full support of the grand reception being packaged for our action governor by the people of Owerri zone because he deserves it”.
