The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Imo State Chapter, has lauded Governor Hope Uzodimma for his massive infrastructural transformation within three years in office describing the feat as unprecedented.
In a statement in Owerri on Thursday, the Chairman of the Association, Rev (Dr.) Etches Divine Etches, said the Christian body is not surprised at the governor’s uncommon achievements, because as the scripture says, “when the righteous are in power, the people rejoice.”
“This Biblical passage sums up the affairs since Senator Hope Uzodimma assumed office as the Governor of Imo State in 2020.”
The statement continued: “The impassable roads are now paved. We even have dualized highways all round the State. The civil servants and pensioners are being taken care of while the health system has been revamped. There is no doubt that things are turning around for good in Imo State.
“That is why the body of Christ united under the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), most warmly express our gratitude to the governor for his relentless efforts to make Imo better.”
The Christian body further noted: “Apart from the huge infrastructure dotting the State’s landscape, we want to appreciate him for his determination to restore and sustain peace in the State. We want to thank him for the empowerment of our youths through SkillUp Imo and other development initiatives.”
The CAN Chairman then enjoined Christians, to pray for leaders.
“Consequently, we ask the entire populace of Imo State to continue to pray and support His Excellency, Senator Hope Uzodimma, the Executive Governor of Imo State, as he strives to create a conducive peaceful atmosphere for all.”
The statement congratulated also the governor for submitting himself to be used by God for the good of Imo State and her people.
