Uzodimma Sends 1,000 Indigenes To Israel For Pilgrimage

After more than 10 years of not attending Pilgrimage from the region, Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma is sending its first batch of a total of 1,000 Imo indigenes for Pilgrimage.

Speaking to the Pilgrims in an address, Uzodimma asked them to be good ambassadors in their conduct and not to abscond to show that Imo people are different.

“Remember that the government that sent you needs to be encouraged in prayer and in good conduct”, he said.

Governor Uzodimma disclosed that his administration’s major priority was not only the physical and infrastructural Prosperity but also the spiritual Prosperity and the well-being of Ndi Imo.

While charging the intending Imo Pilgrims to thank God for the peace in Imo, he urged them to pray for the unity of Nigeria, for President Muhammadu Buhari, who God has used for the infrastructural developments in the State and the President-Elect, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Speaking earlier, the Imo State Chapel Chaplin, Rev. Father Alaribe commended the Governor for his generosity and his good intentions for the Imo people. He disclosed that this is the first of its kind Pilgrimage with 1,000 Pilgrims being the highest in the history of the State.

The Chaplin said that the Governor mandated him as the Chairman of the Pilgrimage Board to incorporate less privileged Imolites from various rural areas for the program.

Imo State Government paid fully for the Pilgrim's transportation to Isreal and Jordan including feeding and other necessities.
