… Accuses him of inexperience
… Marshals out remedies
Former Governor of Imo State and Senator representing Imo West, in the National Assembly Senator Rochas Okorocha has attributed the security challenges in Orlu to inexperience of the Governor Senator Hope Uzodinma in the area of administration.
This is even as he marshaled out points which he advised the governor to take and see the security challenges disappear naturally.
Okorocha who disclosed this to journalists accused the Governor of power drunk, reminding him that power and tenure are transient.
Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma had in the bid to restore peace in Orlu zone following series of killings and clash between men of Eastern Security Network and the Army, sent soldiers in the area to ensure peace.
Addressing the issue, Okorocha who blamed the Governor on the management of the challenge made it clear that soldiers are brought in such situations when every other measure must have failed.
He however said that the Governor as the Chief Security officer in the state would at first engage the youths in a discussions over the security challenges in the area.
According to the Governor, the youths are in the better positions to tell the government the cause of the security challenges as well as solutions.
Okorocha further suggested that number one role of the traditional rulers in all the communities is ensurance of security in their domains, pointing out that a sensitive and reasonable government would also engage the traditional rulers, the clergies and other leaders on the way forward adding that it is only where these fail, that the idea of brining soldiers and their likes would come in.
Describing the situation in Orlu and Imo in general as unfortunate, Okorocha accused Uzodinma of employing the soldiers to scare people away to have his way in his plot to win his second term election.
Okorocha however pointed out that Uzodinma has concluded arrangements to return to power to what he termed through Ben Johnson’s way adding that bringing the soldiers in Orlu is one of the measures to actualize the said purpose.
