Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has called on his opponent to join him in the task of governing the state by contributing their ideas for the betterment of the people.
Hailing the judgment of the Supreme Court that re-affirmed him as the duly elected Governor of Imo state, he urged all Imo sons and daughters at home and abroad, to contribute their quota to the development of the state.
Speaking with newsmen, he said, “In this business, you must show the spirit of sportsmanship. It’s not every time you win, it’s not every time you lose.
“When you win, you carry the losers along; when you lose you follow those that won. My plea to my opponents is to come and bring their ideas, let us team up and create a synergy that will develop Imo State and bring succour to our people.”
He noted that the Supreme Court verdict dismissing the application for a review of the earlier judgment of the apex court “represents the expectation of the mandate of the people. We give God all the glory that at the end of the day, truth came out.
“We commend the wisdom of the Supreme Court in standing by the truth,” he said.
Governor Uzodinma who believes time has come for the APC to make sustained impact in the South East region said “APC is in all the five states of the South East, but Imo is the only state with a Governor of APC extraction.
“I will improve on the status quo by doing things that will impress the people through persuasion, conviction and dialogue. I’ll go on a political evangelism to convert people of the South East to join the national party”, he vowed.
