The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma has blamed present and past political leaders for fueling the rising insecurity in the state.
Uzodinma, who spoke on Tuesday while addressing journalists after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in the State House, added that he alone cannot solve the state’s present security challenges.
He, therefore, called on fellow leaders including traditional rulers and religious leaders to join hands to bring an end to the insecurity in the state.
Uzodinma berated former political office holders in the state for failing to speak out against the security crisis in the country.
He said, “Anybody worth his onions as a leader should be able to speak out. How many of them are speaking out.
“How many of them are condemning what is going on. rather what you see is leaders fanning the embers of insecurity.”
