President Muhammadu Buhari has on Tuesday touched down Imo state where he will spend a day commissioning the projects that have been completed by Governor Hope Uzodimma.
The projects to be commissioned are the first phase of 56km Orlu-Okigwe road and the Orlu -Owerri road.
Governor Uzodinma and other executives of the state were present at the airport to receive the President.
President Buhari previously visited Imo State on Thursday, September 9, 2021, where he commissioned and launched projects.
Thus, his second visit to the state is expected to focus on “sundry matters but largely for the commissioning of completed projects by the 3R Government.”
This was disclosed in a statement released and signed by Dr Paul Ihunanya on Saturday, with the caption, “As Buhari visits Imo again.” The statement also noted that President Buhari will “be commissioning the Owerri-Orlu road, a Federal Road built by the 3R Government and the newly built & furnished Imo State House of Assembly (IMHA) Complex.”
It also read: “In the penultimate month, His Excellency Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma had hinted on President Muhammadu Buhari’s working visit to Imo State for sundry matters but largely for the commissioning of completed projects by the 3R Government.
“This is the second visit by Mr President within a space of roughly one year. During the last visit, Governor Hope Uzodimma gathered Igbo leaders for the reception of Mr President and utilized the opportunity to galvanize relationship between the Igbos and the Federation, with a focus on the inclusion of Igbos in the administration and development of the nation.
“Mr President’s second visit to Imo, within a year, is a clear indication on the unprecedented developmental drive of the 3R Government. Top on the President’s itinerary during the visit would be the commissioning of Owerri-Orlu road, a Federal Road built by the 3R Government and the newly built & furnished Imo State House of Assembly (IMHA) Complex.
“It will be a period of roll call, on the projects of the 3R Government Android a showcase to the world, on the achievements of the Shared Prosperity administration of His Excellency, the Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma.”
