Opinion: Hope Uzodinma, your Road is Good

By Imo Initiative

It is said that when a people embark on a journey on a good road,
there is a tendency that the people will continue to embark on any
given journey through the same road. Conversely, if a community feels
proud of their beloved son in his first outing, the community will
have no doubt to continue to be proud of that same son.
There is something in a name no doubt. When the search for a worthy
person to go to Senate was initiated in 2011, so many people were
considered but at the end of the day, the search berthed at the
country home of Chief Hope Uzodimma, a well known businessman.
Quickly, Hope Uzodinma set up formidable political machinery that
eventually not only grabbed the PDP ticket, but also won the Imo West
(Orlu Zone) senatorial election in April 2011.
33 months down the line, Senator Hope Uzodinma has not only lived up
to expectation but he has proved to the people of Orlu zone in
particular and Imo State in general that his road is good. Let me open
the minds of the reading public.
The fact of the matter is that Orlu Senatorial zone has witnessed an
unprecedented torrential rain of Federal Government projects in all
the twelve (12) Local government areas since Senator Hope Uzodinma
began his legislative journey 33 months ago. He facilitated the
construction of roads in the zone. He facilitated the setting up of
rural electrification projects across the zone. He promoted the
establishment of various Human capacity Projects across the zone.
Senator Hope Uzodinma sunk so many bore-holes in Orlu zone. He also
rehabilitated many water scheme projects in the zone.
If we call him an OGBUAGU, we should not be mistaken. Senator Hope
Uzodinma not only facilitated the gainful employment of youths from
the zone, he also alleviated poverty by empowering over 1000 women
through setting up of women empowerment programmes and skills
Also, it is a statement of fact that Senator Hope Uzodinma has
sponsored many motions and bills at the floor of the Senate. Among the
bills are (1) inland security bills (2) Restrictive Practice and
Monopoly Prohibition Trade bill (3) Fly Nigeria bill (4) Erosion
control commission establishment bill (5) Federal Character Act
(Amendment) Bill.
Among the motions are (1) Dana and Allied Airline plane crash (2)
Violation of Aviation laws and practice (3) Rehabilitation of River
Niger Bridge & construction of the second Niger Bridge (4)
Unemployment data and creation of job centers in the country etc.
Hope Uzodinma did not stop at Orlu Senatorial zone; he expanded his
desire to extend his provision of legislative representation beyond
his senatorial zone. For example, he was able (as the Senate Committee
Chairman on Aviation) to make a case for the actualization of the SAM
MBAKWE AIRPORT as the International Cargo Airport it was originally
designed to be. With the rehabilitation of the airport almost
completed the next phase will see the airport fully turned into an
international Cargo airport
By all intents and purposes, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodinma has
paid his legislative duties to the people of Orlu Senatorial Zone
through his human oriented representation. What more can we say other
than UZODINMA AGA YA UGBORO ABUO. Therefore, the Hope we have in Hope
Uzodinma have been accomplished. Hope Uzodinma, your road is good.
