Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma has denied allegations that his government is full of looters.
Rumours of massive looting in government house over the fears that the review of the governorship petition by the Supreme Court would sack Governor Uzodinma has prompted the said rumours.
Uzodinma however debunked the claims stating that his administration is made up solely credible Imo sons and daughters who have zero tolerance for criminality.
In a statement issued through his spokesman, Oguwike Nwachuku, the governor said the rumours are nothing but a lie from the pit of hell.
Here is the Statement below:
The government of Imo State under Senator Hope Uzodinma is made up of credible Imo sons and daughters who have zero tolerance for criminality.
The government is proud of such personnel who have the fear of God and are solely committed to the service of the good people of Imo State.
The rumour, therefore, making the sounds on alleged looting in Imo State Government House is nothing but a lie from the pit of hell.
The rumour is engineered by members of the previous administration and their agents who are experts in assets stripping. They are yet to come to terms with the fact that the era of looting of government property is gone forever with their ouster from government.
Because criminals will always be criminals, they are seeing in the planned review of the case the sacked Emeka Ihedioha’s administration took before the Supreme Court and the adjournment as another window of opportunity to cause disaffection.
Unfortunately, they did not know that they were only reminding Imo people of what they are noted for i.e. looting of public funds and assets stripping of government property.
Under the government of Senator Uzodinma Imo people are happy that the looters they saw yesterday they will not see again today.
Governor Uzodinma does not only have confidence in the staff he has assembled to work with him, he also has implicit confidence in the entire Imo State work force and together they are working to ensure that Imo people are made prosperous.
