Reconstitute Exco, Fight Insecurity, Imo PDP Tells Uzodinma

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State has called on Governor Hope Uzodinma to immediately reconstitute the State Executive Council (EXCO), pointing out that it is necessary to appoint his team after 14 days he dissolved his expanded exco.

The party also called on the governor to take all proactive measures to tackle rising insecurity in the state, resulting in killings and attacks by gunmen.

In a statement issued, on Tuesday, by the acting State Publicity Secretary of the party, Emenike Nmeregini, PDP condemned what it called “sudden break in administrative process” in the state.

The statement which was made available to The Eastern Updates noted: “It is 14 days running since the business of governance has been put on hold in Imo State. It would be recalled that the State Expanded Executive Council was dissolved on January 26, 2024 by Governor Hope Uzodimma. Till date, Imo State operates without an executive council, as the governor has not reconstituted any yet.

“The state chapter of the PDP, therefore, condemns this act of sudden break in administrative process, with its concomitant breach in good governance delivery in the state.

“The party, therefore, calls on the governor to make haste and reconstitute the state exco to commence immediate rehabilitation of the already battered and dilapidated sectors in the state.

“Nature, they say, abhors vacuum. Indeed, the state does not need this unnecessary break at a time when all structures in the state have collapsed. Already there is general despondency across the state, as the majority of the populace is suffering due to the excruciating pains of hunger occasioned by a rudderless administration.”

The statement lamented that the current state of Imo is most deplorable, and calls for immediate attention to save it from further deterioration and possible backlash.

The PDP maintained the fact that the outcome of the election that brought Uzodimma back to power was still challenged, should not deter the administrative process in the state.
