*TRANSPARENCY AND STATESMANSHIP EPITOMIZED*.

*"CORRUPTION IS NOT A TEA PARTY, IT IS NOT A PICNIC; CORRUPTION IS AN ATTACK ON OUR COMMONWEALTH, IT IS ODIOUS TAMPERING WITH THE CHORD OF OUR HOPES"*.

Based on his deep understanding of the above quote, In 2019 as then Senator Hope Uzodinma campaigned for the No. 1 seat in Imo State, he made his WATCH WORD the RECOVERY and RETURN of all stolen or misappropriated property (Public & Private) by the then regime of now Senator Ethelbert Okorocha to the rightful owners. To the naysayers, this was a deceitful campaign strategy to hoodwink NDI IMO to cast their votes for him. Some others described this as another form of campaign necromancy that will be jettisoned soon after he ascends the saddle as Governor. This as we know is patently the hallmark of wicked and treacherous people world over who constantly choose to be on the wrong side of history.

According to Myles Munroe, *People generally fall into three categories, the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen and the overwhelming who have no notion of what happens. Every person is either a creator of fact or a creator of circumstance. He either puts color into his environment or like a chameleon takes from his environment*. Imbued in him as one of the few who make things happen, H.E. Dist. Senator Hope Uzodinma in less than two years and as if engaged in a 100 meters dash with the world legendary Uzain Bolt of Jamaica, has kept to his WATCH WORD of RECOVERY and RETURN in fulfillment of a cardinal campaign promise which has kept all mouth agape and wagging in Imo today, only comparable to the bewilderment of the Jews upon hearing of the resurrected Jesus Christ.

Today the commonest news in the Imo information hemisphere under the managerial sagacity of Governor Hope Uzodinma is the implausible return of land/property to most especially the helpless and hapless Imo citizens who were violently and unjustly raped by the man they voluntarily though in error gave their votes to protect them.

Governor Hope Uzodinma by this singular act amongst many others has confirmed that his Parents who named 'HOPE' at baptism saw the TOMORROW in him. 'HOPE', has restored Hope in Imo Citizens. 'HOPE', has restored Wealth to Imo Citizens. 'HOPE', has resuscitated the forlorn lives of many Imo Citizens. 'HOPE', has restored Trust and Faith in humanity. 'HOPE, has' expanded the horizon of the word Transparency to an unimaginable height. 'HOPE', has restored confidence in Government. 'Hope', has deepened the root of democracy in Nigeria. 'HOPE', has tremendously manifested his mastery of the act of Statesmanship. 'HOPE', has kept the Hope of NDI IMO alive for a good, secure, prosperous, and sustainable future.

H.E. Governor Hope Uzodinma is on oath with God and Man to constitutionally protect the collective interest(s) of IMOLITES in all ramifications irrespective of who is involved. Therefore, for your honest service, IMOLITES cloth you from all harm as provided in Deut. 28:7, which says, *As your enemies gather to plan your down fall and set backs, God shall confuse and dismiss them in seven directions. You shall be Blessed seven times more until the blessed call you Blessed*.

*IMO BU NKE ANYI NILE*.
