Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodimma, has harped on the need for greater synergy between the three arms of government.
Uzodimma spoke at the Government House Owerri during a luncheon he held for the New Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Emeka Nduka and his colleagues.
The governor said it is “important that the arms of government realize the need to forge a common front and a common objective that will help the government of the day to realize its vision and mission.”
While addressing the gathering that includes political appointees, APC state executives and other heads of government agencies, Governor Uzodimma said the coming together was a deliberate way of creating bonding for members of the three arms of government for greater productivity.
He acknowledged the essence of separation of powers in a democracy, and emphasized that “what makes democracy thick and strong is the clause of separation of powers – Executive, Legislature and Judiciary.”
“I deliberately brought the entire arms of the Government together for them to re-evaluate themselves and their performance in Imo politics and assess their successes and failures.
“Identity mixture has been the issue, yet within the party top brass, the decision and determination is to make the place called Imo State a friendly place to live.”
The Governor said that the target of the party and its members is always to have a meeting point where they must agree and review their work and ensure they function well and efficiently.
“Let us be remembered for what we did when we had the opportunity because we must leave Imo State better than we met it.”
He promised to continue to meet with the audience to bond more with them and urged them to go home and talk to the people at the local government level as Nigeria is theirs.
