Governor Uzodinma further appreciated them for their contributions in the areas they served the State and wished them well in their future endeavours.

In another report, the president of the Owerri Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (OCCIMA), Anthony Amadi has called Governor Uzodinma to declare a state of emergency in food production in the state.

Speaking in an interview with newsmen on Sunday, the industrialist pointed out that crisis was looming if some drastic action was not immediately embarked upon by the state government.

He said; “First, government should declare a state of emergence on the agricultural sector in Imo State. The state government should stop trucks loading with foods and agricultural produce to other countries for the next five to six months because of the adverse effects food exportations have on the country.

“There is a disaster waiting to happen which will be caused by hunger in the state and the country in general. That food insecurity is already a very big problem in the country. Food scarcity creates insecurity generally because a hungry man is an angry man.

The Eastern Updates recalls that a fortnight ago, President Bola Tinubu had directed the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security to release about 42,000 metric tons of maize, millet, and other commodities in strategic reserves to address the rising cost of food in the country.
