The Senator representing Imo North in the Red Chamber of the National Assembly, Sir Frank Ibezim, has felicitated with Governor Hope Uzodinma if Imo State, as the governor celebrates his second year in office.
In a goodwill message he personally signed, Ibezim recalled the challenges the governor had waded through and hailed his courage for remaining focused on his set objectives regardless of distractions.
“I, Distinguished Senator Frank Chukwuma Ibezim, on behalf of myself, family and peace-loving people of Imo North Senatorial District, most heartily convey our warm felicitation to the Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodimma, on the second anniversary of his governorship of our dear state,” Ibezim wrote.
Continuing, he added: “I remember with great nostalgia the event of your swearing in and your inaugural speech on that 15th day of January, 2020 before a mammoth crowd at then Heroes Square, Owerri.
“At the centre of your Excellency’s speech on that fateful day was the promise to reconstruct, recover and rehabilitate the state and her economy in an atmosphere of accountability and transparency.”
The senator recollected how certain challenges reared their ugly heads but we’re not enough to derail the governor from following up his programmes.
He said: “Indeed, few months after your take off, came the crises of Supreme Court judgment review, the pandemic of COVID 19, ENDSARS protest and general insecurities, which altogether culminated into undeniable distractions with terrible cost implications.
“Notwithstanding, you employed commitment, focus, a great sense of responsibility and pragmatic leadership in sticking to your promise.
“Those of us who have made out time to attend your stakeholders meetings can attest to your acknowledgment of the challenges, the highlight of your great accomplishments and positive expectations, arising therefrom.
“It is, therefore, with joy and satisfaction that all of us from Imo North Senatorial District join other people of goodwill to wish you a wonderful celebration of your two years in office, Ibezim said, adding: “You have not only kept your promise but also visibly restored the hope of the people towards governance.”
