Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has desribed President Muhammadu Buhari as a hero to the people of the South East following the commissioning of the Second Niger Bridge.
He stated this in Onitsha, the commercial nerve of Anambra State, during the official commissioning and handover of the bridge renamed after President Muhammadu Buhari, and the federal secretariat complex built in Awka named after the first female engineer and Head of Civil Service, Mrs Ebele Ofunneamaka Okeke.
Gov Uzodimma thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for completing the Second Niger Bridge and other infrastructural projects in the South East region.
The governor, who described the new bridge as a link to Old Eastern and Old Western regions of Nigeria, said the President by delivering the project had become a hero to him (Uzodinma) and the entire Igbo nation.
“We have cried to many government for years yet the projects were not done. The state of the First Niger Bridge make it difficult for our people returning for Christmas and other festivities to sometimes spend five days or more on the road. We thank President Buhari for delivering the projects even though he begged for our votes but we didn’t give him our votes. He is a hero to me and people of South East,” he stated.
