Name Politicians Behind Banditry, Uzodinma Urges Security Agencies

It has been reported that Hope Uzodinma, the Imo State Governor on Friday alleged that politicians are the ones sponsoring the banditry being witnessed in parts of the country.

This was revealed by Uzodinma, to State House correspondents after a meeting with  President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

According to him,  “From 2015 till today, I thought what the problem would be is people saying that there is no job creation, people are not feeding, salaries are not paid, infrastructure is going down, social interventions are not approved by the government”.

He added that “These things are there, available, a pass mark for the government of President Muhammadu Buhari. Now, people are no longer talking about that, rather what they are doing is to sponsor crisis, to the extent that those funding this banditry are politicians”.

Uzodinma stated that “I challenge and call on security agencies to make their names available to the press because what they want to do is to distract a government that is focused”.

The Governor stressed that “If this government is not doing well, I will be one of those that will declare the government as not doing well, but a situation where you will leave the formal and ethical way of doing politics, and you are now sponsoring banditry to bring down a government, for Christ’s sake, we should all rise up and condemn it”.

Meanwhile, Uzodinma was asked to mention the name of the Governors sponsoring banditry,but the governor replied that, “This is security issue, a lot of investigations are going on here and there, preliminary reports are there. People are furthering the investigations”.

“I think I have given you something to go home with. When you go home, think about it and do the homework by yourself”, he added.

Uzodinma also said he was committed to a united Nigeria, and would not support the breaking-out of the country.

He revealed that, “I don’t think that I will support any call for secession. I want a united, strong Nigeria. Our strength is in our diversity and today, we are supposed to play a leading role on this continent”.

Uzodinma added that, “We don’t want to whittle down our strength. Rather, what I advise is that we must appreciate the gift of nature, in our land and the support government”.
