I’m doing my best,Uzodinma tells Imo people
The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, says he is doing his best to assure the people of the state that they are going to conquer their challenges by the grace of God.
The governor who spoke on Sunday also says he remains committed to serving them with the fear of God.
Caracal Reports gathered that Uzodinma spoke during a thanksgiving church service marking the 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day held at the Assumpta Catholic Cathedral, Owerri.
The service was officiated by Archbishop AJV Obinna with the governor, top government officials, traditional rulers and other leaders in attendance.
He said, “We are here to show solidarity to the wives and relations of our gallant soldiers who lost their lives serving the nation – to also commend our security agencies for the good work they are doing in Imo State, at least for making sure that we had a peaceful Christmas celebration last year.
“And to encourage them to continue to do the needful in Imo State to ensure that people go about their normal businesses without fear or molestation.
“We want to commend them because they are officially armed. We want to discourage those who are unofficially armed in Imo State tto stop causing trouble and violence.
“We have time for everything – there is time for challenges – time for temptations, time to be happy, and time to be sober. In all, my assurance to the people of Imo State is that I’ve come to serve you with the fear of God”.
“We are all witnesses to the decadence that befell our state, and by the grace of God – I came, I saw – I am doing my best and by the grace of God I will conquer.
“We are going to recover our state – we are aware of the global challenges – the challenges this time are not only peculiar to Imo State. All over the world we are faced with great deal of challenges – In Nigeria we have a lot of challenges ranging from security to the economy. But by the grace of God and coming to our sub-national level in Imo State – we will do our best to ensure the security of life and property of our people – and the development of our place, is our first line of charge.
“I know and am convinced that the support I am getting from the Archbishop plus his prayers are part of the reasons why we’ve been able to go as far as we have gone”.
