Don't Sit-At-Home on Monday - Uzodimma Urges Imo People
The governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodimma has urged the people of the State to ignore the sit-at-home rumour and go about their normal businesses come Monday. He added that those behind the order and rumours have been identified and will soon be arrested and arraigned.
Uzodimma gave the assurance while addressing the congregation after Sunday Church Service at the Government House Chapel Owerri. He thanked the good people of Imo State who supported and contributed to the successful hosting of President Muhammadu Buhari last week when he visited Imo state while asking those who worked to sabotage the visit to search their consciences in whatever they do.
Addressing the hardship Imo people and residents are being subjected to by the oil marketers, the Governor requested the petroleum marketers to immediately revert to normal price for petroleum products in the State, as the government will not continue to fold its arms and watch them mete out hardship on the people while they sell their products at black market.
Governor Uzodimma added that the government had set up a Taskforce to go round the state to identify and not only seal all filling stations caught in the act but to arrest and make them face the full weight of the law.
He emphasized that "government cannot be complacent while her citizens suffer unwarranted and untold hardship”. Governor Uzodimma seized the opportunity to explain that those who escaped during the jailbreak earlier this year are on the prowl again, now resorting to kidnapping.
He informed that government and the security agencies are on top of the matter, assuring that soon, those involved in the nefarious activities will be brought to book. The governor reiterated his firm belief in doing the right thing based on the vow he has taken before his Creator (God Almighty).
He noted that he has come to serve and do things that are for the betterment of Imo people and not to share Imo patrimony with few friends and cronies, no matter how close they are.
