Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, has reassured the people of Imo that his administration would continue to run an efficient and transparent administration with equity and justice.
He also promised to carry out projects geared towards improvement in infrastructure and development in all facets of the state.
Governor Uzodimma made the pledge in his New Year statewide broadcast in Owerri, the state capital.
The Governor appealed to the people to conquer the fear of failure of the past years and move into the new year with confidence.
“I am very confident that the promised glorious dawn is close enough. Thus, I appeal to the good people of Imo State to be patient because the year, 2024, will surely herald that glorious dawn, and I am confident that the pains of 2023 will begin to wane in 2024.”
“For those of us who may be embittered and genuinely concerned about the hardships or failure to achieve their economic targets in 2023, I wish to remind them that the blessings of God are like rain, falling here today, falling there tomorrow. The most important thing is that we are alive, and with life, hope abounds.
“I appeal with all and sundry to sheath their swords and work in harmony with my administration to deliver more democracy dividends to our people. I reiterate that my administration will be more inclusive and there will be enough room for all. Like I earlier said, we need a renewed love, a renewed hope, and renewed economic growth for our state so as to usher in peace and progress and prosperity for all.”
Governor Uzodimma explained that the vision of the new year started with the 2024 budget and ongoing efforts to ensure a lasting peace in the state.
He announced that his second tenure inauguration will take place on January 15, 2024, and the setting up of a Pan Imo Committee which would be headed by Senator Chris Anyanwu.
