Imo Elders Call For Solution To Insecurity


Elders from Oguta, Oru East and Ohaji/Egbema have risen from a critical stakeholders’ meeting in Owerri, the Imo State capital, and passed a confidence vote on Governor Hope Uzodimma, saying that his efforts at bringing lasting peace to Imo State is commendable.

Operating under a Socio-Cultural Organisation tagged ‘Council of Ohaji/Egbema, Oguta, Oru East Supreme Elders’ Council,’ the elders also commended Uzodimma’s achievements so far in the state.

The group, in a communique signed by Uzoka Chukwuemeka and Justus Ojika, National Secretary and National Organising Secretary respectively, outrightly condemned the level of insecurity in Imo State in particular and Nigeria in general, and requested that an urgent solution be proffered to tackle the situation.

They called on all to sheathe their sword and embrace peace in the interest of Imo State in particular and the country at large.

They appealed to Governor Uzodimma to create a Public Information Centre as a way of sharing information with the people of the state, “whereby he can be easily reached.”

Still on security, the elders appealed to the Governor to “convoke a pro-friendly security summit as a measure towards creating bridges among the security agencies, government and the people as a way of tackling insecurity.”

On Imo State Oil Producing Area Development Commission (ISOPADEC), the elders appealed to the Governor to continue in his funding of the Commission through the creation of more people-oriented projects that can engage the youth meaningfully.
