The state governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, has been called to immediately resign by the States chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over insecurity in the State.
The State Chairman of the party, Mr. Charles Ugwuh, made the call at a news briefing in Owerri yesterday.
Mr. Charles Ugwuh stated that Peoples Democratic Party was alarmed over the worsening state of insecurity in Imo and the escalation of “militarisation of the state.”
According to Ugwuh, governor Hope had demonstrated his inability to protect the lives and property of the Imo people.
His word read, “The governor should resign over his failure to protect lives and property.
“This has become very necessary because of the evidence of lack of capacity of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to guarantee safety and security of lives and property of Imo people.”
The State Chairman of the party also raised the alarm over the alleged harassment intimidation and killing of innocent residents and the burning of police stations, Independent National Electoral Commission offices, and other government properties.
Ugwuh said, “Our party finds it too worrisome that daily, innocent civilians and security personnel are mowed down.
Also, arson, murder, and carnage have become the lot of the hitherto most peaceful states in Nigeria.
“The climax is the gruesome murder of Ahmed Gulak, a former member of PDP and an aide to President Goodluck Jonathan.”
The party had called on civil society organisations and Imo stakeholders to unite to find a lasting solution to the security problem in the state, the chairman added.
The chairman through the party calls Governor Hope Uzodinma to account for the lives of innocent security agents and other residents that were killed in the conflict.
