President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Governor Hope Uzodinma, that the Federal government will help fight security and infrastructural challenges in the State.
The President, who spoke during the commissioning of Egbeada-Onitsha bypass road in Owerri, the Imo State capital, said he was impressed with the level of development in the state.
He said “no society would make any meaningful progress in the face of insecurity and infrastructural deficits”.
Buhari said that his vision of having a secured Nigeria with huge infrastructural progress had marched with what Uzodinma was doing in the state.
He said, “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.”
Earlier in his speech, the governor urged the president to deal permanently with the issues of insecurity and flooding which he said was ravaging Owerri, the state capital.
