On behalf of myself, family, management and staff of Bureau for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs I, Hon. Chief Mrs Ruby Emele (Special Adviser on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs) heartily rejoice with and congratulate the man of the moment, His Excellency Dist. Sen. Hope Uzodimma (Onwa Imo) on his action-packed one year in office.
Your Excellency, you have proven to many that you actually came to Imo to change the narratives and do something differently.
Good number of roads like, Port-harcourt road, Federal Secretariat road, Chukwuma Nwoha, Awo-Omamma-Okwudor road, Amaigbo road and many others have been completed and commissioned plus many others under construction.
In the Local Government system, you have provided ambulances to various LGAs, returned glory to Council headquarters which were hitherto overgrown by bushes. You made available thousands of bags of fertilizer to rural farmers via the Local Government Authorities last year to enhance agricultural production. Most rural roads are now under massive construction and rehabilitation under your able leadership.
Judges, Permanent Secretaries and top Government appointees received brand new vehicles particularly SUVs to be able to perform their duties effectively.
Civil servants now enjoy luxury coming to work and returning home upon closure as they are conveyed in brand new coaster buses with light refreshment on board.
Salaries and pensions are paid regularly by your 3R government.
Markets are rebuilt and remodelled and the IGR base of our dear state improving for our collective good.
All these and many others have been achieved in just one year and we wonder what Imo would look like in the few years to come.
I therefore call on all Imolites of good conscience to lend their support to your administration simply because you have really come to work in a state badly mesmerized by the past government.
For us in the Bureau for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, we pledge unalloyed loyalty to you. You can be sure of our prayers and support as always.
Bravo Your Excellency Onwa Onyoko.
Hon. Chief Ruby Emele
Special Adviser to the Governor on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.
