THE Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma, has said that he is not responsible for the insecurity ravaging the state.
The governor who spoke at his home town in Ozuh Omuma, Oru East Local Government Area of the state during the dedication of St.Rose of Lima Catholic Church Parish Ozuh Omuma also added that his aides were not fuelling the state’s insecurity.
A statement issued by his spokesperson, Oguwike Nwachuku, quoted the governor as saying that he was a product of grace and the mercy of God.
The statement read in part, “Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Orlu, Most Rev Dr. Augustine Ukwuoma in his Homily said the Church dedication will help to foster peace and bring to an end the insecurity and bloodletting in the area and parts of the State.
“In his remarks at the end of the Service, an elated Governor Uzodimma thanked the dignitaries who came from different parts of the country and used the opportunity of the dedication to inform the congregation that neither himself nor his government is instrumental to the killings in Imo State.
“He described the insinuation as evil, devilish and an attempt to smear his image and blackmail his government.
“He reiterated that as a Governor he needs peace to serve the people well and urged those behind the insecurity in Imo State to have a rethink or be ready to face the wrath of God.
“The Governor said that despite all the accusations and blackmail against his person and his administration, God has proven to be with him, saying, “because power belongs to God.”
“He said as someone who has benefited from God’s grace, he owes God a lot of gratitude, noting that it is unthinkable for anyone to link him or his government to the cause of crises and violence in a State God made him Governor.
“He therefore admonished those responsible for the violence and carnage in Imo State to desist forthwith because they will at the end answer for their sins before God.”
