EKO HOT BLOG reports thatt the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, yesterday, revealed that the reason he has not named those behind insecurity in State was to allow security agencies complyete their investigation.
The governor disclosed this in Lagos during a media parley.
Uzodimma spoke at the time gunmen went on rampage in Imo State killing two, beheading one and kidnapping one, just as they wrote petroleum products marketers to part with the sum of N20 million if they were interested in continuing with their businesses.
While respondng to questions from journalists, Uzodimma said: “If you watch the last quarterly stakholders’ meeting held in Owerri where I was to name some of those suspected to be behind the insecurity in Imo State, in that meeting, I did say that the security agencies pleaded that because investigation is still going on, it will be too early for me to begin to name anybody.
“I explained that day that I will allow them to complete their job. The last time I contacted them, they asked for two more weeks. l do hope that in two weeks, the information will be ready and it will be made public to Nigerians.”
Speaking on South East producing the next Nigerian President, the governor called on the two big political parties to feature candidates from the South East to allow equity, justice and fairness.
He said: “I know that in the South East today, we desire to produce the president of Nigeria but we will not do it alone. We need the other political zones and other political parties to work with us.
“If you recall, in 1999, after the annulment of June 12 election, it was the decision of the national political leadership of Nigeria that the South West produced the President.
“Part of what cooled the tension in the Southwest was allowing them to produce the President and then, there were two leading political parties.
Both political parties worked internally to produce two presidential candidates that came from the South West. That meant that which ever party that won the election, the President would have come from the South West.
“Now, the situation is repeating itself. There’s a national sympathy for South East to produce the president and what will make it work is for the two ruling political parties to produce candidates from the south East.

“Let PDP and APC also produce candidates from the South East. That way, we would have decentralized this power sharing in a manner that it has become all inclusive and justice and equity would have been seen to be done,” Uzodimma appealed.
