President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday visited Imo State where he commissioned four newly executed projects.
The projects are Naze-Poly Nekede Road, Balloon Technology Drainage Tunnel at Dick Tiger, Amakohia Egbeada bypass and the New Government House Executive Chambers.
President Buhari was received at the Sam Mbakwe Airport in Owerri by Governor Hope Uzodinma, along with some state officials and other dignitaries.
The President praised the governor for his visible development strides.
“I have seen enough that justifies his (Uzodinma’s) integrity in making sure that he is working very hard to make sure that you get the structures necessary,” President Buhari said.
“I am very impressed by what he has done because I have gone through the same problems at the centre.”
“If there are no roads; if there is no security, what can the people do? Absolutely nothing.
“I am very pleased that by some fabulous coincidence, my idea and that of your governor coincided. I am very pleased with what I have seen and I assure you that, at the centre, I will try to encourage Imo State within the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
