The responsibility of restoring peace and security in Imo State, is a Shared responsibility of all in Imo State.
Governor Hope Uzodimma made this assertion on Tuesday in Abuja when speaking with State House Correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on the state of security in Imo and efforts made so far with other outcome of investigations by the security agencies.
He called on all leaders in Imo State to join hands with the government to restore peace and security in the state.
“I cannot guarantee security alone in the state. And that is why I am engaging the traditional rulers, the Town Unions, the Church leaders, the youth and women, to ensure that together we brainstorm on how we can secure our state,” Governor Uzodimma stated.
However, the Governor regretted that most leaders in the country in general and Sout East in particular are not speaking out as should be expected of them on the security development in the country and the region.
Governor Uzodimma who expressed worry disclosed that personalities and stakeholders like past Senate Presidents, House of Representatives Speakers, Ministers, Governors and the likes should have been holding town hall meetings with the people in their localities to draw their attention to the dangers of what criminal elements in our midts are doing to abridge the peace of the society
The Governor advised that if all the key players come together the problem of insecurity will be over and the state restored to her peaceful status.
