The newly sworn in Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, on Monday, said he plans to conduct fresh elections into the twenty-seven local government councils in the state, in line with the existing local government laws of Imo.

In a statement made available to Igbere TV by the Governor’s spokesman, he said Uzodinma reminded the monarchs that their role cannot be over emphasized in ensuring peace and tranquility.
“The governor assured them that his policies will meet the yearnings and aspirations of Imo people,” the statement added.
Earlier, the leader of the delegation, Eze Agunwa Ohiri noted that the purpose of the visit was to advise the governor to be steadfast and take Imo to a greater height.

Eze Ohiri explained that leadership comes from God and promised the governor the support of the traditional rulers in the state.
