President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday vowed to help Imo State end various forms of insecurity besieging it.
The president, who visited the state despite threat by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), said he was ready to use his power to put an end to the security breach in the state.
He also gave an assurance that he would contribute immensely to ensure that governor Hope Uzodinma is supported to deal with infrastructural deficits of the state.
Buhari, who spoke while Commissioning the Egbeada-Onitsha bypass road in Owerri, lauded the governor’s performance which has elevated the face of Imo State.
Buhari said that his vision of having a secured Nigeria with huge infrastructural progress had marched with what Uzodinma was doing in the state.
“I have gone round and I am impressed with what I saw. A society without security and infrastructure will not progress and lucky this is where my vision has tallied with the governor of Imo state. I will use my power as enshrined by the constitution to make the governor achieve more”, the president said.
Meanwhile, Governor Uzodinma, earlier in his speech, implored the president to help end the challenges of insecurity and flooding which he said was ravaging Owerri, the state capital.
