Governor Hope Uzodimma, has said the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Imo State would hold “transparent primaries in the state, devoid of interference and undue influence”  

He added that with the APC at the State and National levels, Orlu and Imo State would be made better.

According to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Marcel Oguwuike, the Governor spoke at Nkwerre Country Club at an event organized by leaders from Orlu Zone under the auspices of Orlu Development Forum.

The Governor also said he would not be intimidated by those he described as self centered politicians, whom he blamed for fueling insecurity in Orlu Zone.

“There is peace in Orlu, rather ‘’Orlu is under attack by perceived enemies of the zone who lost out in the last election and have refused to accept defeat.”

 “I cannot be intimidated because I have come to serve and would like to be remembered for good governance and lasting legacies that will mark me out from other politicians who are self-centered and self-seeking” part of the statement read.

He said what had befallen the people of Orlu zone is an orchestrated attack targeted at causing confusion in the zone and render it politically irrelevant.

Uzodimma however assured that with him on the saddle as Governor of the State, those behind the attacks and agenda to decimate lives and property in Orlu will not succeed.

Governor Uzodimma said the people of Orlu Zone, have lost 16 years of developmental opportunities having been governors of Imo State for a consecutive 16 years but without anything substantial to show for it.

He reiterated that God sent him to correct the wrongs of the past, emphasizing that “in my effort to make Imo people and Orlu zone better, no amount of provocation will lure me into killing and letting blood.”
