As work is speedily ongoing at the Nekede-Ihiagwa road, it is a good testament to the Shared Prosperity Government of Governor Hope Uzodimma that no road in Imo State will remain as it was before he assumed office.
The Nekede-Ihiagwa road was one out of many roads that were left on paper by the immediate past administration which degenerated into a death trap and became a cash cow for transporters to extort and make unnecessary gains from commuters due to the nature of that road.
Many knew that it was as a result of maladministration that brought that road to that level but decided to politicize it by blaming the present administration.
Governor Hope Uzodimma as a leader, who understands governance as a continuous process, swiftly mandated contractors to go back to the site and today it’s an entirely different story.
Unlike his predecessor, there was no form of a media frenzy on flagging-off the Nekede-Ihiagwa road and as it is, Imolites can confidently say that the pace on the road and the quality of materials used cannot be said to be a “Patch-Patch” or “Shine-Shine” construction.
As usual, Governor Hope Uzodimma continues to visit the site on an inspection tour to ascertain the level of work and ensure that the road meets up with the global best standard.
This singular act of the Governor places him above his equals and further celebrates him as not just a working Governor but a Governor who values the life and wellbeing of his people.
Imolites are no longer jittery and uncertain of what this present administration will offer as each day it is becoming clearer that the Shared Prosperity Government of Governor Hope Uzodimma is a pointer of a better Imo for all of us.
NOTE: Shared Prosperity requires Shared Responsibility.
