He equally lauded the governor on his promise of rebuilding their ancestral market (Eke Ukwu) market which he said was also demolished by Okorocha’s administration.
Governor Uzodinma while reacting to the speech made by the elder Statesman said his administration has come to reduce the sufferings of the people through provision of such quality roads, revamping the health sector and providing them with clean water through rehabilitation of the Otamirri water scheme.
He promised that his administration will continue to better the lives of the citizens, he also acknowledged that part of his reasons of accepting to govern the State was to correct the anomalies caused by previous administrations in the State.
