Owerri, Imo state – Amid the worsening insecurity in Imo, the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the immediate resignation of Governor Hope Uzodinma.
Premium Times reports that the call was made by Charles Ugwuh, the state chairman of the party at a news briefing in Owerri on Wednesday, June 2.
According to the party chairman, Uzodimma had demonstrated his inability to protect the lives and property of the people.
While charging the governor to account for the lives of security agents and other residents killed, the opposition party called on Uzodimma to take full responsibility for the problems, The Guardian added.
Ugwuh said the demand had become necessary in view of the evidence of the lack of capacity of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to guarantee the safety and security of lives and property.
PDP also raised an alarm over the security situation and expressed worry over the burning of police stations and offices belonging to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Ugwuh said the PDP called on civil society organisations and opinion leaders in Imo to unite to find a lasting solution to the security challenges in the state.
