The new governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, has attended his first National Economic Council (NEC) meeting at the presidential villa, Abuja.
The Imo governor after the meeting told newsmen he will continue ruling the state from where his predecessor stopped.
He promised to give his best just as he made reference to his manifesto which he said contains his plans for the state.
Sharing his contribution at the NEC meeting Twitter, Governor Uzodinma said: "Earlier today I was at the national economic council meeting. I discussed the plans of my administration to grow the economy of Imo State through job creation, agriculture and infrastructural development."
Diverse reactions greeted Governor UZodinma's post on Twitter as some commended and advised him on priority projects while others asked him to do more of acting than talking.
"The most powerful way to create jobs is by leveraging in Telecom and ICT.
"Build a broadband infrastructure that will enable rural and urban dwellers become e-entrepreneurs with minimal cash backing.
This is exactly what India did and today; over 100 million are out of poverty," Prince Obi-Nwosu Emmanuel Butches tweeted.
"Talk is cheap oh! Talk is cheap!! Talk is very cheap!!! IMO is not Oyo state oh, hit the ground running now with major investment in agriculture," Ikemba wills tweeted.
"Let the road construction in urban and rural areas continue before the raining season start,May God bless your administration amen," Emmanuel Uchenna added.
Meanwhile, Uzodinma also said he will work hard to reconcile all aggrieved stakeholders in the state for the purpose of development.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Christian leaders in Imo state claimed the facts before the people of the state shows that Governor Uzodinma did not win the governorship election of March 9, as declared by the Supreme Court.
The religious leaders thus asked the Supreme Court to review the ruling.
Speaking for the leaders, Rt Rev Chidi Oparaojiaku, an Anglican bishop, said the group was shocked that the topmost court went contrary to the evidence on ground.
Bishop Oparaojiaku described the judgement as a bad precedent by the court and the court must immediately work to maintain a positive image and ensure democracy is not put in danger.
Meanwhile, nine lawmakers in the state House of Assembly have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
