Uzodimma reassures on Orlu’s safety

•Says attack is aimed at disenfranchising the electorate

The Executive Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma, has reassured the people of Orlu zone that their safety, protection and development will always remain of the utmost priority to him.

Uzodimma pointed out that Orlu people are peace loving, stating that the recent cases of killings and destruction of property in the zone that has portrayed the area as the epicentre of insecurity in Imo are politically contrived to disenfranchise the electorate from there.

Uzodimma was speaking at the weekend at Nkwerre Country Club during an event organised by leaders from Orlu zone under the auspices of Orlu Zone Development Forum to find a lasting solution to the spate of insecurity in the area.

Uzodimma regretted that what had befallen the people was simply an orchestrated attack to cause confusion in the area and render the zone politically irrelevant.

The governor however, reassured the people that those behind the attacks with an agenda to decimate life and destroy property in Orlu would not succeed.

As part of measures to sustain the many years of developmental trajectory associated with prominent Orlu people, the governor challenged the leaders to set up a technical committee of eminent sons and daughters who will interface with the State Government with a view to looking into the problems affecting the peace and development of the zone. 

The governor, who was invited as the Special Guest of Honour, advised the forum on the need to setup a think-tank that would develop a blueprint on the needed sustained peace and development in Orlu.
