Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state has nothing to do with the 2023 elections.
Uzodinma said Buhari was simply on a working visit.
The governor, who stated this while appearing on Channels Television, said Buhari commissioned projects while in the state.
“Our people came out to receive the president who visited Imo State in solidarity with the governor of Imo State. It has nothing to do with the 2023 election or politics.
“We only received the president who came on a working visit, commissioned projects and had an interaction with us,” Uzodinma said.
