Rt. Hon. Benjamin Okezie Kalu, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, has implored the people of Imo to support Governor Hope Uzodimma of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in his bid for reelection.
He said that supporting Uzodimma will result in an increased level of federal government presence in the state and the South East.
Kalu who was represented by his Special Advisers on Special Duties, Cliff Ogbede and Inter-Party Affairs, Jerry Nwohuakanwa, said: “The deputy speaker has mandated us to plead to Ndimo on the importance of re-electing the performing governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodimma for another four-year term come November 11, 2023. For the Southeast to benefit from the government at the centre, the strategic position of Governor Hope Uzodimma in the scheme of things in the current APC-led federal government as his re-election will be more beneficial to Ndimo and the entire South Eastern region in general.
“The deputy speaker said he and his team are fully in support of Governor Uzodimma’s re-election bid and will continue to partner with the governor and the state by attracting more federal government presence in the state.
“The numerous achievements of the Governor include Imo Road revolution and urban renewal programmes, educational, healthcare and agricultural developments in the state, the Special Imo skill up programme, reconstruction and recovery of government assets among others.
“To sustain the pace of development in Imo, His Excellency Senator Hope Uzodimma should be returned for another four-year term and the deputy speaker is pleading for Ndi Imo to retain and sustain their political capital in Hope Uzodimma for the benefit of all.”
The deputy speaker urged Ndimo to vote for the ruling APC, saying that “by doing so, Imo will continue to enjoy maximum cooperation from APC led Federal Government and by extension, the entire Southeastern region that needs federal presence for our collective growth and development,” even as she pledged to be physically present at the grand finale.
