GOVERNOR Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has thrown his weight behind the presidential ambition of Senate President, Ahmed Lawan.
Uzodinma, alongside his Yobe State counterpart, Mai Malami Buni, yesterday, confirmed their support for the country’s third citizen when they submitted his presidential forms.
The forms were submitted to the national secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Addressing journalists, the Imo governor said; “Like you know most of us here are from the national assembly, some serving some are non -serving. Particularly like me I left the senate on sabbatical to go and contest election in Imo state and I’m on borrowed status in Imo State as the governor. Today we are here in solidarity to accompany our leader the Senate President to submit his duly completed form and we have submitted the forms”.
On why he thinks the Senate President is the best for the job, Uzodinma said; “In the Police, it is called esprit de corps”.
Uzodinma is the second prominent politician from the South-East to back Lawan after former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu.
