Uzoka-Anite, an indigene of Imo State State, further stated that what Governor Uzodimma has achieved within his three and half years in office is unprecedented.

According to her, the governor has touched all areas of the economy and has started and completed gigantic projects in the 27 Local Government Areas in the state.

“Governor Uzodimma is a man who loves Imo State from his heart, the more reason he is working hard to turn the fortunes of the state around which will benefit all and sundry. His huge investment in all critical aspects of the state has shown that if given another term, he will truly serve the people diligently with an open mind backed with their interest at heart.

“His laudable projects are critical to the development of the state which is quite visible to anyone who visits the state. The gigantic state-of-the-art equipped hospital in Omuma Oru East LGA, Oguta General Hospital and the construction of many critical roads that will enhance the smooth movement of goods and services to drive trade and commerce cannot be over-emphasized”, Uzoka-Anite said.

Speaking further, the Minister added: “Governor Uzodimma’s foresight and solid plans for Imo led to the dredging of the Oguta Lake which will bring a seaport to Imo State when finally actualized. The project will fetch the state billions of dollars in revenue, put Imo in the spotlight, generating direct and indirect employment. It will also affect the exportation of agricultural produce which will give Imo farmers a platform to export their goods to the outside world most especially, Yams.”

Uzoka-Anite, a former Commissioner for Finance in the state, therefore, pleaded with all Imolites to shun violence and come out in large numbers to cast their votes for Uzodimma on Election Day.

“I want to ask all Imolites to come out in large numbers and speak in one voice with their PVC’s because a good turn truly deserves another. Our votes should be cast to send Governor Uzodinma back to Douglas House for the next four years.
