Imo Guber: LP Gov Candidate, Achonu Reveals What Peter Obi's Presence Did For His Campaign In Orlu

LP Guber Candidate, Achonu Asks Uzodinma To Resign Immediately, Reveals Why

by Victor Ndubuisi

Senator Athan Achonu, the Labour Party (LP) candidate in Imo State’s governorship election on November 11, has called on Governor Hope Uzodinma to quit honorably for failing to address insecurity in the state.

The remarks were made by Achonu in a statement signed by the director general of his campaign group, Mr Chime, and made accessible to Newsmen on Tuesday in Owerri, the capital of Imo State.

Achonu, speaking in response to a recent meeting between the governor and traditional rulers, presidents-general, and youth leaders from communities in Imo, chastised the governor for encouraging his audience to take responsibility for the security of their individual areas.

He remarked that the governor’s dereliction of duty to the local authorities was “unacceptable” in his capacity as the state’s main security officer and encouraged him to step down because he lacked any remedies.


The N1 million that the governor distributed to each traditional leader in the state to aid in the fight against insecurity was also referred to as a “Greek gift” by the speaker.

“The first duty of the government is to protect lives and property, and a governor, by the dictates of our constitution, is the chief security officer of the state.

“If the chief security officer is telling the people he is supposed to protect, to protect themselves, that simply means that he lacks the capacity to continue as their Governor and should therefore resign.

He claims that the timing of the payment—less than four months before the governorship election—indicates that its true purpose is to win the favor of traditional rulers, particularly given that the state has long faced the problem of insecurity.

“It is indeed worrisome that on the eve of a governorship election in which he is a candidate, Gov. Uzodimma has just realized that the traditional institution exists whereas, between October 19, 2021, and July 17th, 2023, about five traditional rulers have been reportedly murdered in cold blood,” he said.

However, he reassured the people of Imo that, if elected governor, he would be ready to tackle security and other issues head-on and he encouraged them to give him the necessary support.
