Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi,

Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, has charged the newly sworn-in Imo State governor,  Senator Hope Uzodinma, to embark on a process of “healing” for all political actors in the state.

The Senator who made the call in a statement he personally signed and released in Abuja, noted that doing so would greatly reduce tension and guarantee speedy development under his watch.

According to the lawmaker, the governor’s emergence through a Supreme Court ruling on Tuesday, marks the beginning of an era of ‘hope and prosperity’ for Imo State.

Senator Abdullahi also called on the new governor to, as a matter of urgency, prioritize the security and welfare of citizens of the State.

“The ruling by the Supreme Court on the 2019 Governorship Election in Imo State on Tuesday signals hope and prosperity for its people, particularly under the All Progressive Congress (APC).

“However, for success to be recorded, I urge the newly sworn-in Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, to as a matter of urgency put in place initiatives and policies that would guarantee the security and welfare of citizens of the state.

“Also, it is necessary for the Governor to extend a hand of fellowship to all political actors in the state, so as to bring about healing and reduce existing political tension.

“I have no doubt that as an Ambassador of the National Assembly who understands the workings of representation, the Governor would make the institution proud by always putting the interest of Imo citizens ahead of all other considerations,” Abdullahi stated.

He congratulated Governor Uzodinma and the All Progressives Congress, APC over the Supreme Court judgement.
