According to Uzodinma, “I came to see Mr. President first to greet him and share some of the issues that are confronting my administration in Imo State. In specific terms the issue of erosion, the level of erosion in Imo State is alarming and I have taken time to explain to Mr. President and he has assured me that the Federal Government will intervene as soon as possible.
