The emergence of Governor Hope Uzodinma came as a surprise to many who never believed he could reclaim back his rightful place after Emeka Ihedioha was announced winner in the 2019 general election.
The administration of Hope Uzodinma has met so much criticism and resistance from people who felt that the All Progressive Congress should not have won the Governorship position in Imo state.
As the day goes by, the good People of the South East began to develop undying love for Mr Hope and this is evident in the level of massive support he got from the people of the zone during an uprising which paralyzed commercial activities in the state few weeks back.
