Insecurity: PDP’s attack on Uzodimma mischievous, says APC

By Collins Osuji, Owerri 

The All Progressives Congress, APC, Imo State chapter, has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s recent comments on the spate of insecurity in the state as dishonest, wicked, and utterly mischievous.

Imo PDP had, in a release signed by its Publicity Secretary, Mazi Emenike Nmeregini, on Monday, attributed the renewed killings and destruction of private and public property in the state to a lack of leadership capacity of the APC-led government of Hope Uzodimma.

The opposition party also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order an immediate investigation of Uzodimma’s latest outbursts and threats against innocent citizens of the state, particularly, members of opposition parties.

Reacting, the Imo APC spokesperson, Cajetan Duke, yesterday, said the comment was also “a deliberate attempt to malign the person of the governor, undermine the credibility of his administration, and mislead the people.”

Duke said: “It is no longer news that what is happening in Imo today has the tacit endorsement of the opposition element in the state. So, instead of looking for whom to blame, Imolites and all men of goodwill deserve an unreserved apology from PDP, and not it’s provocative and hypocritical grandstanding.”

He further said: “As a party, we had expected the PDP in Imo to exonerate itself from obvious culpability in the ongoing security challenges in the state by joining hands with the state government to condemn the ugly trend. However, we are shocked over their unrepentant and unrelenting devious posture.”

“Nonetheless, we are delighted that Uzodimma, to the admiration of patriotic men and women in the state, irrespective of political inclination, has continued to demonstrate capacity, maturity, and uncommon statecraft in the business of governance, and, particularly, the fight against politically-sponsored insecurity in the state.”

“While we continue to commiserate with the families of victims of insecurity, we pray to God for the restoration of peace and security in our state.”
