Chioma, who is Founder, GoodHope Flourish Foundation, in a post on her Facebook page on Sunday, said the honour testified to the acceptance of the good work being carried out by Governor Uzodimma in the state.
She wrote : “It was an incredible reception indeed as the Okigwe Zone gathered in honour of my dear husband, His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma, and his shared Prosperity administration on January 21, 2023.
” The event which was held at the Township Stadium in Okigwe was organized by Okigwe Global Leaders Forum and witnessed a large gathering of various Stakeholders, decision-makers, and leaders from all six Local Government Areas of the zone.
” My husband and I were conferred with a Chieftaincy title of “Chukwumereze Ndi Okigwe”. This recognition by the Okigwe community emphasized the great work carried out by our amiable Governor and his administration so far for the people of Imo State.
“His Excellency, in his words of appreciation and assurance, expressed gratitude to the people of Okigwe for such a warm reception and also assured the people of adequate attention from the Government to issues affecting the general well-being of ndi Okigwe. He, however, called for the continued support of Ndi Okigwe to the Shared Prosperity administration, to enable the Government to deliver more dividends to the people.
“I am grateful for the conferment bestowed unto us and thereby, extend my gratitude to the people of Okigwe Zone, our beloved family, friends, and well-wishers who gathered to support and celebrate with us.”
