Don’t politicise Imo security crisis, PDP warns Uzodinma


NGF IPOB Uzodinma

The Peoples Democratic Party has warned the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, to desist from politicising the current security crisis in his state.

The warning was contained in a statement released on Thursday titled “Uzodimma’s Stance On State Police Exposes A Sympathy For Bandits, Says PDP…Blames Gov for Crisis in Imo.”
The party’s national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan slammed the governor for his stance on state police after he told Channels TV on Wednesday that the rising spate of attacks and kidnappings across the country are sponsored and targeted at the presidency.

The PDP also alerted that Uzodimma’s stance on state police connotes sympathy for bandits, adding that his justification for the failures of his benefactors is at the expense of the lives of other Nigerians, including the people of Imo state.

Ologbondiyan charged Nigerians to hold their leaders, especially those with sympathy for terrorism, responsible for the activities of such deviants in our country.

“The PDP alerts that the frenzy by Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, against demands by the PDP and other well-meaning Nigerians for the establishment of state police, exposes his sympathy for terrorists and bandits who are killing, kidnapping and ravaging our nation.

“The PDP’s position is predicated on Governor Uzodimma’s interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Wednesday, wherein he also attempted to justify President Buhari’s failure to wake up to the statutory demand of his office and take expected steps to rescue Nigerians from terrorists and bandits.

“The party asserts that Gov Uzodimma’s anti-people stance against efforts to establish state policing system also exposes his insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians in the face of manifest failure by the APC-controlled federal security apparatus to protect the people.

“It is however not surprising that Hope Uzodimma, who is in the Imo State government house as a beneficiary of criminal manipulation of our electoral and judicial processes by the APC cannot but found himself justifying the failures of his benefactors at the expense of the lives of other Nigerians, including the people of Imo state.

Nigerians are now seeing the faces of the @OfficialAPCNg leaders who have sympathy for terrorism and should hold such individuals responsible for the activities of such deviants in our country.

“Furthermore, the PDP cautions Uzodimma against politicizing the current security crisis in Imo state which is occasioned by his mismanagement of the sensibilities of the citizens.

“Governor Uzodimma should end his pursuits of imaginary traducers and blame nobody but himself and his APC for the crisis in Imo state.

“Our party is grief-stricken over the devastation that Governor Uzodimma and the APC have brought to Imo state and urges the people to continue to be peaceful and law-abiding despite the provocations by APC thugs who have been causing mayhem in the state,” he said.
