Senator Hope Uzodimma, the Governor of Imo State, has stressed the need for improved cooperation between the three branches of government.
Uzodimma spoke at a luncheon he hosted for Rt. Hon. Emeka Nduka, the new Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, and his colleagues.
The governor stated that it is crucial for all branches of government to recognize the need of creating a united front and a shared goal that would support the current administration in fulfilling its vision and purpose.
While addressing the gathering that includes political appointees, APC state executives and other heads of government agencies, Governor Uzodimma stated that the coming together was a deliberate way of creating bonding for members of the three arms of government for greater productivity.
He acknowledged the essence of separation of powers in a democracy, and emphasized that “what makes democracy thick and strong is the clause of separation of powers – Executive, Legislature and Judiciary.”
“I deliberately brought the entire arms of the Government together for them to re-evaluate themselves and their performance in Imo politics and assess their successes and failures.
“Identity mixture has been the issue, yet within the party top brass, the decision and determination is to make the place called Imo State a friendly place to live.”
The Governor said that the target of the party and its members is always to have a meeting point where they must agree and review their work and ensure they function well and efficiently.
“Let us be remembered for what we did when we had the opportunity because we must leave Imo State better than we met it.”
