Uche Onyeagocha, the immediate past Secretary to the Imo State Government on Thursday asked the state governor, Hope Uzodinma, to resign since he has shown himself incapable of protecting the lives and property of Imolites and foreigners living in the state.
The former Reps member now the PDP Candidate for Imo East Senatorial District, stated this in a press release signed by the Special Assistant on Media, MacDonald Enwere made available to DAILY POST.
Recall that DAILY POST had earlier reported how residents on Tuesday night deserted Orogwe community in Owerri Local Government Area of Imo State after seven people were shot dead by gunmen who invaded the community on Monday night.
Onyeagocha while condemning the recent murder of seven refuse scavengers from Niger Republic in Orogwe, Owerri west LGA, said, “Governor Uzodimma should resign since he has shown himself incapable of protecting the lives and property of Imolites and foreigners living in the state. ”
The former lawmaker described the sad incident in his local government, Owerri West, as disheartening and called on the Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma to take urgent steps to restore peace and normalcy in the state.
He said, “This is the irreducible minimum responsibility of any responsible government. The continued shedding of innocent blood in the state under the present administration is condemnable and unacceptable.
“I most heartily commiserates with the people and government of Niger Republic over the gruesome murder of her citizens in the state and prays to God for the peaceful repose of their souls.”
