Hope Uzodinma, the governor of Imo State, has praised the contributions made by the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the state chapter of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) during the Saturday, November 11 governorship election.
According to earlier reports from Anaedoonline.ng, Uzodimma won the Saturday election and was proclaimed the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday after he won in each of the state’s 27 local governments.
During his acceptance address, the governor expressed his gratitude to the NLC leadership and their TUC counterpart for not only endorsing him but also mobilising their members to cast ballots for him.
According to the governor, the state’s TUC and NLC fought those who tried to take advantage of them while hiding behind a sinister plot, demonstrating their resilience in the face of temptation.
The Governor said: “In a very special manner, I thank the leadership and members of the Nigeria Labour Congress in the Imo state chapter and members of TUC, and Nigerian Union of Teachers, and Nigerian Union of Pensioners, for standing firm.
“They were resilient in the face of every temptation, they stood by me, because, according to them, we have a cordial relationship. And those who tried to use them, hide under evil conspiracy, they resisted them.
“Not only that they endorse me before the election, they came to the commitment by coming out in mass to vote.”
