Renowned philanthropist and business tycoon, Chief Tony Chukwu (OnweghiIheKaririChineke) have called on Imo people to join hands together and support the Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma to rebuild the state.
The agro-entrepreneur cum chief executive of construction giant-Roudo Engineering made the call at his country home, Umueze 1, Ehime Mbano LGA when the newly sworn-in Governor of Imo State paid him a private visit.
The Palpal knight of the order of St Gregory, sir Chukwu, stated that it is the will of God for Senator Uzodinma to be governor of Imo state now, stressing that he should be supported in his government policies of reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery.
According to OnweghiIheKaririChineke, ‘’Imo State is our collective heritage’’, it is, therefore, our collective responsibility to join hands and ensure its development. The Supreme Court has on January 15, 2020, returned the All Progressive Congress, APC, candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma as the governor of Imo state in what many have described as the Will of God given the circumstances surrounding his election into office.
It is, therefore, the responsibility of all well-meaning Imolites to support the governor at this point. It is also our collective hope that governor Uzodinma will now concentrate on governance and delivering greater dividend of democracy to Ndi-Imo., these, however, can only be possible in an atmosphere of peace and harmony.
Governor Uzodinma had led a powerful delegation which includes his Deputy, Prof Placid Njoku, Chief of Staff- Bar Nnamdi Anyehie, Secretary of Imo State Government-Chief Cosmos Iwu, Caretaker Chairman of Imo APC, Chief Marcel Nlemigbo among others to pay a surprise visit to his age-long friend, Chief Tony Chukwu.
Chief Chukwu, has been a close confidant, political and business associate of the Imo Governor for more than 30years. OnweghiIheKaririChineke has supported his friend’s political ambition right from the time he contested governorship of Imo State under AD to his aspiration to represent Orlu Zone in the National Assembly of Nigeria and played a major role in his emergence as APC gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 general election. In a way of gratitude and comradeship, Governor Uzodinma decided to pay his first official visit as Governor of Imo State to the country home of his friend, Chief Tony Chukwu whom he fasted together for 30-days ahead of the 2019 Imo Governorship election.
