The Imo State Governor, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma has asked Imo people to shun and ignore scaremongers and propaganda to create fake and artificial unrest in the state as the Shared Prosperity Government will never endanger or risk the lives and Properties of the people or put them in harms way.
Addressing Imo people to relieve them of their unfounded fears at the Imo State Government House Chapel, Owerri during the Sunday service, Governor Hope Uzodimma stated that such rumours were designed to put fears in the mind of Imo people and assured that no such thing would happen.
“Imo people and residents should go about their businesses without fear of molestation or harassment. What happened in the past weeks will never repeat itself again.” Uzodimma stated.
Governor Uzodimma seized the opportunity to reiterate his earlier stand that those perpetrating the violence and evil in Imo State are mostly not Igbo people but hired machineries.
He insisted that the Government under his watch will not allow those who visited mayhem on the people to operate again in Imo State.
In his statement “We will crush anybody that attempts to cause mayhem or attack Imo people again. Government cannot surrender to blackmailers, hoodlums and perpetrators of violence who have sworn to make the State ungovernable.”
The Governor enjoined Imo citizens to “feel free so long as you are not a criminal”.
Governor Hope Uzodimma also warned those planning to visit the State with any form of violence should have a rethink as “government is more than ever ready and prepared to keep Imo safe and secured.”
