Poll Losers Are Waging War In Imo, Says Uzodimma

Imo State governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma has revealed that those who lost the 2019 general polls in Imo State are orchestrating war in the state.

Gov Uzodimma added that the poll losers’ objective is to ensure the state remains ungovernable.

The governor submitted that though he is privileged to know sponsors of insecurity in the state, his covenant with God had made him to look up to Him for vengeance.

He however asserted that “No man will get power in Imo State by killing his people because Imo people are in the hands of God.’’

Gov Uzodimma charged members of the Imo State Chapter of the National Peace Committee to find courage to confront the sponsors of violence and insecurity in the state.

 He advised them to ensure the restoration of peace anchored on justice, noting that his government will give them the necessary logistics that will make their job easy. 

He commended the activities of the National Peace Committee established in 2014 which helped to ensure that the 2015 election which was greeted with tension and volatility turned out to be relatively peaceful. 

The governor noted that ‘’any responsible government will welcome the committee for peace and development to thrive.” 

He reassured of the support of the state government, saying that “the inauguration of the Peace Committee is a sign of hope and encouragement as well as support to the efforts of the clergy in preaching peace.” 

He also expressed satisfaction with the calibre of members of the committee which he said are capable of delivering on their mandate. 

He then wished the Committee the best as the members go about their responsibilities. 

Earlier, the Chairman of the Committee in the state, Rev. Fr. Philip Ogbonna requested the governor to give the committee the necessary support and logistics to fulfill their mandate.

 He said they have also resolved to partner with the state government and to “support the Federal, State and Local Government on this initiative to bring peace before, during and after the elections.” 

Fr. Ogbonna added that members have resolved to work to stop the unwarranted destructions, terrorism and killings in the state which are to nobody’s gains.

 He acknowledged that “in Imo State things have gone bad” and that “most conflicts and crisis in the state are aimed at pursing self interest.” 

He said they have resolved as a committee to ensure peace through consultations and dialogue and affirmed that “peace is achievable by continually seeking solutions to peace.”
