Mbaise development vital for Imo industrialisation, says Uzodimma
Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has said the development of Mbaise is crucial to the industrialisation drive of his administration.
While felicitating with Mbaise Nation on this year’s Iri Ji Mbaise (New Yam festival), the governor noted that the Owerri–Mbaise–Umuahia road, which he flagged off recently, is part of his determination to achieve that purpose.
According to a statement, yesterday, by the Chief Press Secretary/Media Adviser to the governor, Oguwike Nwachuku, Uzodimma is expected to be the special guest at a ceremony today in Itu, Ezinihitte Mbaise, the host local council for this year’s Iri Ji Mbaise.
The governor, in his goodwill message, promised to complete the Owerri–Mbaise–Umuahia road in record time, and assured that other ongoing projects in the area would receive similar accelerated attention.
