The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Imo State chapter has criticised President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Imo State. The State Publicity Secretary of PDP, Ogubundu Nwadike, stated that Buhari’s visit is a mockery on the people of the State.
Nwadike who accused Buhari and Hope Uzodinma the state governor of causing war in the state in a statement said: “In recent months, Imo, once a land of peace, was forcibly turned into a theatre of war. Today, Imo knows no peace principally because the governor is on the warpath.
“Imo under Governor Hope Uzodinma is a police state. Basic freedoms of the people have been curtailed while an army of occupation reigns and rules in the land. The entire scenario leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. For us in PDP, the presidential visit is a deliberate ploy to mock the people of the state to their very face. This is callous and inhuman.”
