President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to assist Imo Governor, Hope Uzodinma, deal with infrastructural deficits of the state.
Buhari gave the promise while Commissioning the Egbeada-Onitsha bypass road in Owerri on Thursday. The president who was impressed with the level of development in the state also assured that he would wield his power as the president to deal with security breaches in the state.
Speaking further, Buhari noted that no society would make any meaningful progress in the face of insecurity and infrastructural deficits.
He therefore stated that his vision of having a secured Nigeria with huge infrastructural progress had marched with what Uzodinma was doing in the state.
“I have gone round and I am impressed with what I saw. A society without security and infrastructure will not progress and lucky this is where my vision has tallied with the governor of Imo state. I will use my power as enshrined by the constitution to make the governor achieve more.”
Speaking earlier, the governor urged the president to deal permanently with the issues of insecurity and flooding which he said was ravaging Owerri, the state capital.
