The governor appealed on security issues yesterday in Owerri at the town hall meeting of the Council of Traditional Rulers of the State.
Uzodimma, represented by State House of Assembly Spokesman Paul Emeziem, also reaffirmed its commitment for sustainable peace and unity in the state.
He said his determination to provide sustainable development and prosperity for the state would not be attainable without peace and security in the state, and added that He did not neglect the manual labor of the enemies and opposition to distract the government and make the state vulnerable.
He said: “Certainly we do not sleep on the security situation in our state, but the government can don’t do it alone. We need relevant information and support from the traditional rulers and other affected Imo citizens in order to achieve results.
“We are also determined to support all efforts that ensure sustainable peace and the unity of the state because without all of this, the government’s praiseworthy vision and development programs would not be achieved.
“Beyond what the government is doing in infrastructure, human capital development, etc., which are visible and praiseworthy there, we must unite to protect and protect the state and people’s lives. “
” As patriotic citizens, we have an obligation to assist the government in providing the democratic dividends we desire for our people and we are unabashed in our determination to get Imo back on track for the general good of the people ” , added Emeziem.
At the beginning of his remark, HRH Eze Emmanuel Okeke, chairman of Imo State Community Policing, condemned recent attacks on the state by suspected crooks.
He also supported the establishment of the EbubeAgu safety outfit by the governors of the Southeast and was optimistic that with the support of the people they would achieve the desired results.
He said: “We, all the Ezes in the state, have each other vowed to work with efforts that would result in booking those behind the insidious and wicked acts in our state. ”
