Speaking to INNONEWS on the planned reception, a chieftain of the APC in Owerri North, Mr. Chukwudi Osuji said Owerri zone APC will go ahead with its planned reception for Governor Uzodinma despite the odds.
“We are together in organizing a well deserved reception for the Governor. Stakeholders and leaders of the zone, including appointees of the Governor, have met and we will continue to meet to discuss on organizing the reception.We will not be distracted by political dissidents who want to frustrate our efforts.
“We had plans to hold the reception sometime in October, but on second thought, we considered the need to have more time to enable us give a grand reception for the governor and that is why we are proposing a date in December.
Recall that Governor Uzodinma, had last week met some stakeholders from Owerri zone where he lamented how he met an empty treasury and his plans to rebuild infrastructure in the zone.
