My Administration Would no Longer Tolerate Protests -Gov Uzodinma
Hope Uzodinma of Imo State on Thursday warned against protests that could cause a breach of peace stressing that his administration would no longer tolerate such protests.
Recall that there have been protests in Imo and other states by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members since the Supreme Court sacked Emeka Ihedioha as governor.
Uzodinma spoke when members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and Joint National Association of Persons with Disabilities (JONAPWD) held a solidarity rally for him at the Government House in Owerri, the state capital.
The governor reassured Imo citizens that his administration was for peace and service just as he assured the persons living with disabilities that they would not be marginalised.
Responding, State NURTW chairman, Comrade Izuchukwu Okebaram, and his JONAPWD counterpart, Bright Ikechukwu Uzoma, said they came to express their solidarity with the governor over his victory at the Supreme Court, describing it as an act of God and a bold step by the judiciary in justice delivery.
Meanwhile, governor Uzodinma has extended the tenure of investigative panels and commissions of inquiry set up by the Ihedioha administration.
He extended their tenures based on the committees’ request, pointing out that government is a continuum just as he informed that he would not engage in witch-hunt but would continue with the good programmes inherited from his successor.
