2019: Senator Uzodinma unveils agenda, tackles Gov. Okorocha over ailing Imo economy
Ahead of the forthcoming 2019 general elections, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress(APC), in Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma has promised that his administration, if elected, would be purpose-driven.
He said his government would embark on recovery of the state assets, reconstruction and rehabilitation of moribund critical infrastructures, to boost the State’s economy.
Uzodinma, who made this known on Monday, after unveiling his 5-point blueprint in Owerri, the Imo state capital, said, “Today, I presented my manifesto to the good people of Imo State. I thank every person who made an effort to join.
“The manifesto highlights my 5 point blueprint agenda for economic survival in our dear state. Under my leadership as Governor, our administration shall be purpose driven and anchored on the following 3 Rs – Recovery, Reconstruction and Rehabilitation.
“In a democracy, power belongs to the people and not the other way round. Government is not instituted to deride the people but, to protect their fundamental rights.
“I pledge that we shall be responsible and accountable to the people of Imo State”.
The Senator, however, decried the current state of Imo economy, which he said, had been bastardized by the Governor Rochas Okorocha-led administration.
