•Commends Sponsorship Of Pilgrims To Holy Land
In firm belief of Philip Stanhope’s Philosophy which says that “Whatever is worth doing at all, is worth doing well”, Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has received a cheering pat on the back for placing the overall welfare of Imolites first before politics.
This commendation was given by the South East National Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Dr. Ijeomah Arodiogbu in a media session with Journalists in Owerri.
The APC National officer explained that the recently flagged off of the Imo State welfare scheme was another wonders of Uzodimma geared towards the protection of lives and property.
Dr. Ijeomah Arodiogbu likened the good governance mantra of governor Hope Uzodimma in Imo State to that of the President Muhammadu Buhari under whose eight years tenure that would soon hand baton of Leadership to another ‘Jagaban’ ensured that poverty alleviation and welfare of Nigerians were his top priorities.
Arodiogbu was so delighted that the many years of hardship as witnessed before the coming onboard of Uzodimma through the APC party are now over with both human, capital and infrastructural developments.
On the Welfare Scheme registration in Imo State, Arodiogbu opined that upon completion, citizens who successfully register and get their IMSSBN will be able to have access to health insurance, loans and business supports from the government, employment opportunities, skill acquisition as well as generate citizen inforpedia for future benefits.
He reiterated, “This program will tackle unemployment among the youths, quality health care delivery as well as help the government make proper planning for the citizens in terms of social welfare packages and provision of social amenities.
“The exercise is also targeted at enrolling every adult indigene in Imo State into an enterprise database platform just like the State government did when sanitizing the civil service”.
It was further gathered that the social welfare scheme would help the government place priorities on some specific social amenities to help better the lives of Imolites, and would be annually updated to accommodate new persons.
The erstwhile politician however enjoined Imolites to take advantage of the opportunity granted governor Hope Uzodimma by duly getting captured.
In a related development, Dr. Ijeomah Arodiogbu has further eulogized the State Governor for graciously approving and sponsoring Imo Indigenes to Jordan and Israel for the 2023 pilgrimage.
Giving emphasis to the spiritual benefit such Holy journey can attract to the State, Arodiogbu averred that more prayers will be offered for the peace and development of the State.
Recall that the first batch of pilgrims numbering three hundred had gone, and currently on the second batch which continues till the one thousand persons had participated on the journey to the Holy land.
Against this backdrop, the National APC South East officer was happy that the selection was done simultaneously and across Party lines.
“This has also shown the man Governor Hope Uzodinma is, his firm trust and belief in God; the spiritual welfare and growth of the Citizens are paramount to him. Imolites are blessed to have a man like him, his second tenure will be more better”, Arodiogbu enthused.
