Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, was at the weekend inducted into President Muhammadu Buhari’s Integrity Hall of Fame.
At the investiture which took place at the Mbakwe Executive Council Chambers of the Government House, Owerri, the Director of Arewa Hall of Fame, Prof. Ibrahim Muhammed, who presided over the ceremony, described Uzodinma as “champion of change and integrity.”
The event was also attended by the leader of the Arewa Hall of Fame, Alhaji Salmon Salami and other members of the team.
The governor’s induction followed the recommendation of the Research and Documentation Section of the Arewa House, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
“Hope, you are gold. Hope, a champion of change. Hope, a special man.”
The Arewa team placed Uzodinma side by side with the first civilian governor of the state, late Sam Mbakwe.
In his response, the governor acknowledged the award as an uncommon gift, saying he was overwhelmed at his induction into President Buhari’s Integrity Hall of Fame, particularly going by the processes of identifying and choosing him for the honour.
He described the induction as not only symbolic but also very significant as it was coming from an intellectual group that was non-partisan.
