Governor Uzodinma: President Buhari to visit Imo on Thursday

President Muhammadu Buhari has unveiled “Nigeria Jubilee Fellows”, a programme designed to create new opportunities for 20,000 fresh graduates annually.

The governor of Imo, Hope Uzodinma, says President Muhammadu Buhari will visit the state on Thursday, September 9.

The governor spoke of the visit while addressing journalists at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri, on Saturday.

Uzodinma said the president will commission some “significant projects” executed by his administration.

The governor said that he visited Abuja to “address some political matters and some critical issues that are supposed to be handled in Abuja”.

He listed the issues to include getting the federal government’s assistance on the World Bank programmes on rural roads, ecological programmes, and the Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management (NEWMAP) projects.

“While in Abuja, I secured approval for President Muhammadu Buhari to visit Imo on Thursday, Sept. 9, to commission some significant projects put together by the Shared Prosperity Administration.

“More to that, Imo has been able to attract additional support from Mr President on management of some ecological problems in the state,’’ he said.

Uzodinma was recently named as the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council for the Anambra governorship election.
