Written by thereachfm on March 11, 2020
The Imo State House of Assembly led by Chiji Collins, has asked that the southeast states be included in the sharing of 22.7 billion dollars recently released to the federal government as foreign loan.
The House at the plenary yesterday, moved a motion, asking why the southeast states were excluded in the loan.
The motion, according to our correspondent in the state, was moved by the member representing Ideato-north state constituency, Arthur Egwim.
Egwim, by the motion, has urged the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma to take up with the presidency on the issue of the exclusion of Imo and other southeast states in the distribution of 22.7 billion dollars foreign loan approved by the senate for infrastructural development.
The motion further urged other southeast leaders to work in synergy with the governors in ensuring that the geopolitical zone is not marginalized in the scheme of things in future occurrences.
The motion received massive support from members and was subsequently adopted by the House.
