Abuja Business Reports has reliably gathered that a day before Christmas, Senator Hope Uzodimma, the Governor of Imo State met with all his Appointees at the Imo State Exco Chambers.
Amongst several discussions, the Governor
directed His Appointees to go back to their various Local Government Areas with open hands to embrace new members wishing to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sen. Uzodimma had stated “our Party is big enough to accommodate everyone, APC doesn’t belong to one person”.
On the back of this expanded exco meeting, the State Appointees from Isu LGA, Abuja Business Reports learnt, met to create a road map towards actualising the directives of their Boss.
Hon. Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr. Lambert Orisakwe whom’s residence in Isu Njaba was the meeting point, was quoted as saying that, “it is the will of Governor Uzodimma that we welcome new people to our Party and I agree with this because the more we are the more we can achieve.
“We will speak to our friends in other Parties and even those who do not belong to any party yet, we will be delighted to welcome them all and work with them”.
Also speaking, another appointee, Barr. Steve Nwoke from Umundugba Isu (Special Adviser on Legal, Government House) said, “it is urgent we act on the directives of our Governor and that is why we had to meet immediately to discuss strategies for Membership drive.
“We have a lot of Members already but we do not wish to rest on our laurels, moreover there are many people who have now seen the commitment of APC in Imo State under Gov. Uzodimma; all those people will be encouraged to officially join us”.
On her part, Hon. Cllr. Celia Osakwe-Hibbert who is from Amurie-Omanze in ISU, was said to have supported her colleagues saying, “Our Party under Senator Hope Uzodimma here in Imo State has come to recover the fate/hopes of Imolites, to reconstruct our roads and amenities and to rehabilitate the broken system in our state; therefore I agree with my Boss and my colleagues that we must allow anyone who wants to join our Party to do so because that means more people to help carry out the 3R vision which will heal our State.
The second leg of the meeting, our correspondent gathered, is slated to take place within a couple of days, with Hon. Kenneth Ukah, the IMC Chairman present.
