According to the Holy Bible in the book of Ecclesiastes 3:1-4, there is a time for everything and a season for all the things under the heavens. A time to weep and a time laugh, a time to mourn and time to dance. The later succinctly describes the mood imo state special citizens ( persons with disabilities) find themselves since the reclamation of mandate given Sen. Hope Uzodimma(Onwa Oyoko), the man with a large heart and a dogged fighter. He has come to wipe out the tears and hopelessness inflicted on the persons with disabilities by the past two administrations. Yes, this reclamation of divine mandate couldn’t have come at a better time than now when the past two administrations in the state engaged and supported all manner of marginalisations against persons with disabilities.
As an avowed progressive, Sen. Uzodimma has started making all the necessary arrangements to restore the Special Citizens to their lost glory. He had drawn out state of the art policy which was hinged on his tripartite mission of rehabilitation, reconstruction and recovery for persons with disabilities which is in tandem with the global best practice.
It is on records that the immediate past short-lived administration may have tried to copy the template but it was heavily marred by corruption and incompetency on the side of personnel engaged for its implementation. The present government of All Progressive Congress (APC) designed it’s manifesto putting into consideration the various needs and aspirations of persons with disabilities and this is exactly what the people oriented administration of Gov. Hope Uzodimma is set to achieve. Joint National Associations of persons with disabilities (JONAPWD) as the umbrella body of all Associations of persons with different forms of Disabilities hereby declares that our community has no other option than to support the man who has all our problems at heart. We equally enjoin the good people of Imo State to close ranks and support this present administration as it has come to correct all the anomaly associated with the previous administrations.
This is the season of Ndi IMO to laugh especially PWDs. The almighty God who made this reclamation of victory possible knows that we have suffered a lot under the previous dubious and corrupt infested administrations and we cannot afford to go through that terrain again hence this divine intervention. It is now our duty to support and pray for this administration to succeed and there’s no better time to do that than now because Imo is the land of Hope and God has given Hope as governor.
