Governor Uzodimma dropped this hint on Saturday in a chat with newsmen at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri Imo State.
He said, “I have secured approval for President Muhammadu Buhari to visit Imo State on Thursday, September 9, 2021, to commission some significant projects put together by the Shared Prosperity Administration.”
Speaking on his assignment as the Chairman, APC Campaign Council for the Anambra State governorship election, Governor Uzodimma acknowledged the importance of the responsibility thrust on him by his party.
He said that he will keep on trying to convince people in the region on what they stand to gain should they vote for APC to win the election scheduled for November 6, 2021.
The Governor said, “The Southeast desire is to join the national politics and those of us in the committee are doing our best to convince our people in Anambra State that we will be better for it if they are in APC.
“Joining the party at the centre will enable the Southeast leaders to manage the welfare and trust of their people better.
“The Southeast has suffered a great deal of marginalization. The Southeast has been excluded in many things, the reason being that Nigeria is practising partisan democracy, and once you are with the ruling party, there are some advantages you will get outside those who are not in that party. This is no longer a secret.
“As a result, the Southeast wants to be part of the party at the centre, so that we can get both our rights and privileges.”
