Uzodimma tasks Owerri leaders on unity, insists on handing over to zone in 2027

Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State, has restated his commitment to ensure his successor in 2027 comes from Owerri zone, challenging the leaders to eschew Rancour and forge a common front that shows their preparedness to provide leadership.

He spoke at the weekend when the leadership of Owerri zone in the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by the state APC Chairman, Dr. Macdonald Ebere, paid him a congratulatory visit at the Government House.

The governor, who expressed gratitude to them for the visit, restated his commitment that the next Governor will come from Owerri zone and enjoined them not to disappoint Imo people by quarrelling about it. “You have to be united and if possible, come up with a consensus candidate.”

He acknowledged that the zone has given him maximum cooperation and support, noting that, “and any good man must reciprocate every good gesture.”

However, the governor reminded the leaders that a lot of differences still exist among them and therefore challenged them to take steps to reconcile their differences and unite as brothers and sisters.

“No man or woman will do it alone, because what the State needs most is peace, stability, prosperity, fight against poverty and security.”

He regretted that insecurity has done a lot of harm to the economy of the State and canvassed the need for all to come together to put our house in order.
