The state government had said that the Peoples Democratic Parthad indicted itself over the security situation of the state after it asked the state governor, Hope Uzodinma, to resign over rising insecurity in the state.
The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, said that the statement credited to PDP was a self-indictment on their part.
He said, “It was all over the social media, where the party leadership made this threat which was even on video, and it was never denied nor retracted. The PDP has been on a mission to actualising it evidenced by the organised protests they staged in the early stages of the Uzodimma administration.
“The PDP never condemned the attacks on the correctional centre, the burnings of police stations and killings in the state, showing that they condoned the attacks.
“PDP is condoning these attacks because it seems like they are playing a script and are very happy that they have reached the climax that is why they are issuing very illogical and unreasonable demands.”
Responding, the PDP spokesperson in the state, Ogubundu Nwadike, said, “We don’t need to join issues with a government that has failed in its primary duty of securing lives and property. Imo government should seek help on what is happening here. We insist that the governor should resign for incompetence.”
