In what might annoy some people in southeast, the emergence of Imo state Governor Hope Uzodimma has been described as an act of God.
This is according to the president of Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN) His Eminence, Samson Ayokunle, The Nation Newspaper reports.
He disclosed this while addressing thousands of Christians at a prayer rally organised by the CAN Imo state chapter at the Hero’s Square, Owerri.
According to him, the emergence of Uzodimma as governor of the state was as a result of God’s decision, The Sun Newspaper added.
“Let me tell you this, before you take any step or action, hear the voice of God, and you don’t reject the voice of God. I say this because, you are a miracle governor. You’re coming as governor, was as a result of God’s decision. So, you are a miracle governor. That is why any step taken against you will be subdued because your coming as governor can only be possible by God.”
Meanwhile, he called on the governor to always seek the voice of God before taking any action.
“For you to continue to stand, you have to stand strong. Calling on God always is a pathway to victory. Everybody must eschew violence."
We'll continue to enforce peace in Imo state, says Hope Uzodimma
Uzodimma has made some donations to the family members of the officers and men of the Nigerian Army 34 Artillery Brigade and their counterparts in the Nigerian Air Force 211 Response Group who lost their lives in defence of the state recently.
A statement sent to Legit.ng by the Imo government, noted that Governor Uzodimma gave assurances that his administration is on the track for a long-lasting solution for peace and security in the state and will not be deterred by some setbacks encountered.
He maintained that Imo state despite recent security skirmishes will continue to be a good and worthy host of the country's military. The highlight of the event was the presentation of cheques to the next of kin of men and officers of the Nigerian Army and Air Force, who paid the ultimate price for the security of lives and properties in Imo state.
Insurance policy for security operatives
Legit.ng had earlier reported that Governor Uzodinma recently unravelled plans of establishing an insurance policy that will help boost the morale of security operatives serving in Imo state.
The governor disclosed this when he paid a condolence visit to the Imo state police command on Tuesday, June 15.
He also expressed sadness over the murder of security operatives on duty by unknown gunmen in the state.
Recall that Governor Uzodimma had earlier charged the security operatives in Imo to stop allowing themselves to be killed in cold blood by bandits attacking police facilities in the state.
