of our great party and the entire Imo people at large.


 “Looking back, you
will agree with me that from where we met Imo state in 2020 and where we are in
2023, there is a huge difference.


“If that is what touched your heart to challenge me to
continue, I assure you that I will do my best not to betray this confidence you
have reposed in me.


“I pray that God almighty will give me the courage, wisdom,
knowledge, and resources to take Imo to its destination.

have been three times better, if not for the huge money we spent fighting
insecurity, but God almighty has intervened.


 “Going forward, we
will double our speed.”
