Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma has revealed what he did right away after being proclaimed the winner of the state’s governorship election on Saturday by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
According to Uzodinma, he entered the chapel and gave thanks to God for making sure he won the election on Saturday.
This was revealed by the governor on Monday at a press conference in the state capital of Owerri.
Uzodinma also gave thanks to God Almighty for his triumph.
According to him: “To the glory of God, INEC declared me the winner of the governorship election held in our state on Saturday.
“It’s with a deep sense of humility and abiding faith in God that I accept the great honour and privilege to serve as your governor for a second term.
“Because I acknowledge God in everything I do and because I know that power comes from God, the first thing I did on receiving the news was to proceed to the Chapel to thank God for his goodness to me and the people of Imo State.
“Of course, I can never thank God enough for doing it again for me. The Almighty God has shown that he did it four years ago and has done it again, so I dedicate this victory to God and the good people of Imo State.”
After receiving the most votes, INEC on Sunday pronounced Uzodinma the victor of the governorship election that was held on Saturday.
Prof. Abayomi Fasina, the Imo State Returning Officer for INEC, declared Uzodinma the victor after she received 540,308 votes to outshine the opposition.
Athan Achonu of the Labour Party came in third place with 64,081 votes, while Samuel Anyanwu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) finished a distant second with 71,503 votes.
