Imo State Governor Senator Hope Uzodimma said on Tuesday that the state’s people’s ongoing support and prayers were critical to the state’s development.
This was stated by Uzodimma while delivering his goodwill message at the Imo Unity and Praise Convention, which was held at Ndubuisi Kanu Square in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
The governor, who attended the event with his wife, Chioma, asked for the people’s prayers and support for his administration, saying that without it, his administration would struggle to achieve its 3R development agenda.
Uzodimma further said Imo State remains in God’s hands despite the challenges confronting the State and explained that God has been with the people of the State because he has never allowed the plan of the devil to succeed.
According to him,” God has been there for us- In good times and in challenging times. He is always there. There is evidence everywhere to show that the Almighty God is in Imo State.
“We were challenged- We didn’t go retaliating, we put our knees on the ground-we prayed and God answered us” the Governor stated.
Uzodimma further urged harmonious relationships between religious groups in the state for peace.
