He disclosed that “the stakeholders meeting/luncheon will now hold at the Government House, and not the AHIAJOKU CONVENTION CENTER, Owerri by 12 noon on Tuesday, January 4th,2022.”
He noted that the meeting which is the sixth in the series is very crucial because of the weighty issues that are up for discussion.
Residents are full of expectations as Governor Uzodimma names the sponsors of the insecurity in the state.
