Uzodinma, alleges plot by ex-gov, others to destabilise Imo state

by Admin

The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma, has raised the alarm over an alleged fresh plot by a former governor of the state and some other politicians, to destabilise the state and his government.

While addressing a press conference on Tuesday in Owerri, the state capital, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Chief Declan Emelumba, said the former governor and the disgruntled politicians have been trying so hard to destabilise the Uzodimma regime.

“A former governor of the state and other disgruntled politicians have voted a hefty N5 billion with which to trigger another round of security crisis in the state,” Emelumba said.

“A serving member of the House of Representatives from Imo State is coordinating the destabilisation plot.

“Part of the plot is to raise a petition to the inspector general of police that security has collapsed in the state and that the government has been overwhelmed by the challenges.

“They are going to use the recent unfortunate fate of our two royal fathers from Njaba to anchor their campaign,” he added.

The Commissioner said the government also discovered that after the petition, the politicians have then planned to start a destructive campaign and sponsor sundry protests for the declaration of a state of emergency in Imo.

He added that the politicians were those who lost out in the scheming for the 2019 governorship election and those indicted by the White Paper on recovery of land and looted assets of the state.
