- Reveal their communities spent hugely to meet Imo Assembly requirements
Eze-elects in the autonomous communities created by the 7th Imo State House of Assembly and ratified by the 8th House have called on the Imo State governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma to issue Certificates of Recognition and Staff of Office to them. They insisted that they had laboured for it and deserve recognition.
They made the plea at the weekend when they visited Hon. Ruby Emele the Special Adviser to Governor Uzodimma on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.
Presenting their demand before Emele, the leader of the delegation, Eze-elect Charles Nnadi of Elemudo Autonomous Community in Ngor Okpala, commended Uzodimma’s Shared Prosperity government programme and agenda. He maintained that the 3R mantra of Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Restoration were capable of giving hope to the hopeless and comfort to the oppressed.
Nnadi highlighted how they (Eze-elects) spent through their individual communities to ensure that they met the requirements of the 7th Assembly; who did proper verification and got the approval of the various autonomous communities.
The Eze-elects promised to give their unalloyed support to the Shared Prosperity government of Governor Uzodimma if they are issued their Certificates of Recognition.
Responding, Emele assured the Eze-elects that their demand will be given necessary attention as soon as they present their documents to back up their claims that they are duly ratified by Imo State House of Assembly.
She stated that Uzodimma’s administration is anchored on Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Recovery, pointing out that, the governor has come to correct so many irregularities in every sector of the state.
She reiterated the resolve of Uzodimma’s administration to put smiles on the faces of Imo citizens by rendering selfless services so that at the end of the tunnel, Imo will be better than how it was when he assumed office.
The SA advised the Eze-elects on the process they will follow to get government attention to their agitations and promised them that as soon as they follow due process, the present administration will attend to them.
Also present during the courtesy call were Eze-elect Charles Okechukwu Anyaegbu from Opara-Amainyi Autonomous Community in Ihitte Uboma LGA, Eze-elect Austin Egwuonwu from Isiaku Autonomous Community in Okigwe LGA, Eze-elect Christopher Njoku of Ezi-Awo Autonomous Community Awo-Omama, Eze-elect Bonaventure Alimeziem Obiaraije of Umuokuzu Autonomous Community in Ochia Ohaji /Egbema LGA and Eze-elect Lawrence Eke of Orishieze Autonomous Community in Ngor Okpala.
