At a luncheon he hosted for Rt. Hon. Emeka Nduka, the new speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, and his colleagues, Uzodimma addressed.
The governor stated that it is crucial for all branches of government to recognize the need of creating a united front and a shared goal that would support the current administration in fulfilling its vision and purpose.
In her remarks to the group, which also included political appointees, APC state executives, and other heads of government organizations, Governor Uzodimma stated that the gathering was intentional and aimed at strengthening the bonds between the three branches of government for increased productivity.
He acknowledged the importance of the separation of powers in democracies and underlined that the “clause of separation of powers – Executive, Legislature and Judiciary” is “what makes democracy thick and robust.”
“I purposely gathered all of the government’s branches together so they could reflect on how they performed in Imo politics and identify their achievements and failings.
“Identity mixing has been a problem, but the party’s senior brass has decided and is determined to make Imo State a welcoming place to live,”
According to the governor, the goal of the party and its members is to regularly convene to examine their work, come to an agreement, and make sure everything is running smoothly.
“Let us leave Imo State better than we found it, and let us be remembered for what we did when we had the chance.”
He vowed to keep seeing the audience in order to develop a closer relationship with them and invited them to return home and communicate with those in local government since Nigeria is theirs.
