Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma says that his administration will continue from where his predecessor, Emeka Ihedioha, stopped.
Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was last week declared the governor of Imo State by the Supreme Court after sacking Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He spoke to journalists Thursday on the sidelines of the National Economic Council, (NEC), meeting at the Conference Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja, which was his first.
“I feel excited being part of the engine room where national development is being planned and I am encouraged”, he said.
On the report that he (Uzodinma) intends to probe the past administration, he said: “Government is a continuum, I will continue from where I met the government but if on the process there are issues to be probed, I will, of course, will not hesitate to do that.”
Further asked on his impression on the discussion at the NEC being his first outing, he replied: “Don’t forget that I have been around for a very long time. I have been a private sector person, I have been in the Senate for eight years, I have been part and parcel of government. So there is nothing really new.
“The process of national development is a collective thing. So from one point to the other point, we will continue to participate in contributing our own quota.”
Uzodinma said that he would be making efforts to reconcile aggrieved groups in the state for the stability of the polity.
“Gradual by gradual we will reconcile all various groups towards uniting our people to great stability in the polity.”
