Uzodimma cautions Okorocha

Imo State governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, has sued for peace, while failing to name sponsors of insecurity in the state at stakeholders’ meeting as earlier promised by the government.
The governor, who addressed stakeholders at the Government House Owerri on Tuesday, also asked the former governor, Rochas Okorocha, to stop distracting his administration.
While urging all to join hands with him to realise the Imo State of “our dream,” Uzodimma promised not remove his eyes on the ball regardless of such challenges, which he said, were not insurmountable.
He reminded Okorocha that he [Uzodimma] is the governor and should allow him bear the name.
The stakeholders meeting was the fifth in the series since Governor Uzodimma assumed the mantle of leadership in Imo State on January 15, 2020.
On his stewardship, the governor said that he was committed to providing good governance to Imo people, but regretted that some elements from the state had been working underground to undermine his good intentions.
He said, without specifics, that at the last count, 34 roads awarded by his government had been completed and commissioned; 54 undergoing construction, 51 currently under maintenance, while signing of contract for the award of new ones is ready.
Uzodimma also regretted the distortion of the Owerri Master Plan, which he said his administration has started revovering and advised those involved in the act, including those buying property from government reserved places, to desist as his government would recover such property no matter who is involved.
