The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State has accused Governor Hope Uzodinma of insensitivity over the spate of insecurity facing the people of the state.
The PDP in a statement on Monday by the party’s state publicity secretary, Emenike Nmeregini said Uzodinma has continued to ignore wise counsel on how to deal with insecurity in the land.
The opposition party further called out the Governor over the allegation of wining and dining with exotic drinks in the company of a few members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the State and the neighbouring Southeast states despite the sobber mood in Imo over the killings by criminals.
The PDP said the people of Imo can’t wait to show Uzodinma and the APC the exit door when the time for elections comes, accusing him of breaking into the Government House in January 2020.
It said while the people of the state are yet to recover from the cold-blooded killing of the innocent youths of Otulu in Oru East Local Government Area, Governor Uzodinma chose to hold a lavish banquet at the Posh Banquet Hall, Rockview hotel, Owerri.
The PDP statement read, ”The I-dont-care, nothing-de-happen attitude of the Governor since the widely condemned, gruesome murder of over 20 innocent youths – his own kinsmen by his Ebubeagu militia has become more glaring that he cares less of 10, 000 innocent lives lost, under his watch, since he broke into the Government House in January, 2020.
“Governor Uzodinma’s reaction to the alarming insecurity in the State, especially the recent Otulu massacre, confirms his tacit complicity to the reign of terror and bloodletting in Imo State.
“It is incontrovertible that this governor has serially refused to welcome and implement wise counsels, strategies and solutions, proffered by the Peoples Democratic Party in Imo State and that of other patriotic stakeholders towards addressing the nagging insecurity and collapse of government in Imo State.
“While the governor has not only shown deliberate lack of empathy to families of the victims of the massacre, he has deliberately refused to extend solidarity to their families on behalf of the government and people of Imo State.”
The PDP however said the dark times brought by the Uzodinma administration on Imo State would soon be over.
“The darkest hours are usually just before the dawn. This too shall pass and Ndi Imo shall be happy again,” the party submitted.
