President Muhammadu Buhari will, on Thursday, pay a special visit Imo State.

The governor of the state, Hope Uzodinma disclosed this on Saturday at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport in Owerri, where he also revealed that his recent Abuja trip was to “address some political matters and some critical issues.”

According to the Governor, President Buhari will commission “significant projects” while in Imo.

He listed roads constructed through Federal Government/World Bank Intervention, and Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management projects (NEWMAP).

“Imo has been able to attract additional support from Mr. President on the management of some ecological problems in the state,’’ he said.

On the forthcoming November 6 Anambra gubernatorial election, Uzodinma predicted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will emerge victorious.

The governor urged the people of the state and the South-East to align with the APC.

“Those who support the party at the centre will get both their rights and their privileges," Gov. Uzodinma added.
