Hon Innocent Ikpamezie, the General Manager of Owerri Capital Development Authority (OCDA) has called on all Imolites to put political differences aside and help the Government to recover Imo State from the hands of evil people.
The OCDA Boss made this solemn call in an interactive session with Media in the state at his office in Owerri, Imo State.
“Lets put political differences aside and recover Imo first from the hands of the evil ones. Imo State is our own and if the State shuts down all of us will suffer it”.
He urged the journalists, media platforms, and social media influencers to join the government in finding a lasting solution to the problem in the state.
“The media is supposed to support the government in spreading the right information and not misinforming the public. Help within your reach and preach peace. The effect of fake news is irreversible. If this continues, no one knows who is going to be the next victim”.
Hon Ikpamezie also opined that no government will want any of her citizens to die and no governor will want his people to die unless he doesn’t have a human heart.
“I have worked with Governor Hope Uzodinma for years and there has never been any violence attributed to him. He is a smart man who has his ways of solving problems, but violence is not one of them. The way Gov Hope modeled himself, he tries to get the best of everything”.
He further stated that peace is the only thing that will ensure normalcy in the state. Unfortunately, the nightlife Owerri is known for has being crippled by insecurity and fear.
“When everyone is preaching peace, it could have a positive effect on those perpetrating these attacks in the state and that is what we need now because when peace returns, businesses will thrive and our great economy will bounce back to what it used to be again” Hon Ikpamezie concluded.
