National Vice Chairman of African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the South East geopolitical zone, Chilos Godsent, has declared that Imo State has been put on auto-pilot mode by Governor Hope Uzodinma.
He claimed that the governor has not reorganised his cabinet or is even in the state.
This is even as the party said the Imo governor has become the sole administrator of the state as he has equally sacked all the 27 transition committee chairmen.
The ADC chieftain, who stated this, yesterday, in Owerri, the Imo capital, said governor Uzodinma has put the state on auto-pilot mode while he has been away from the state in the past one week.
He said: “The state has been put on auto-pilot by Uzodimma who himself is on vacation as he has not been in the state in the past one week. He has also not reconstituted the executive council since January 16 when he dissolved the council. We know the constitution stipulated six months within which state governors/president must constitute its cabinet. But are Imo people going to wait for six months? As I speak, nobody knows the whereabouts of the governor.
“Remember, he equally sacked the sole administrators in the 27 councils alongside the commissioners, special advisers and others and as result, nothing is happening right now either at the council headquarters or at the state ministries.”
However, he alleged that Governor Uzodimma having rigged himself back into office with impunity during the November 11, 2023 Imo State governorship poll feels he no longer owns the people any obligations.
“Having rigged himself back into office with brute force using the security agencies, he no longer feel the urgency to reconstitute his cabinet as every important decisions at the ministries or agencies must awaits the return of the governor who is not in the state which makes Uzodimma the sole administrator of the state.
