…calls on Town Union, Youths to stop ongoing looting
The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in Imo state has cried out over the alleged continued wanton plundering and looting of Public infrastructure and government properties,by suspected agents of the out going administration of His Excellency Rochas Okorocha.
The PDP made this known in a release sent out to media on Wednesday and signed by Nze Ray Emeana, State Secretary with theme- A CALL TO TRADITIONAL RULERS, TOWN UNION HEADS, YOUNTHS AND THE PUBLIC TO RISE UP AND PROTECT PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE AND GOVERNMENT PROPERTY.
The Party states that they have “continued to receive credible and verified information about the wanton plundering and looting of public infrastructure and government properties, by suspected agents of the outgoing administration of His Excellency, Rochas Anayochukwu Okorocha”.
According to the Party,the action of the out going state government is regreateable and warned that the PDP as a party entrusted with the mandate of Imolites come May 29 would not watch and see public properties freighted away by mindless persons.
“It is regrettable that these illicit activities have continued to intensify with every passing day as we countdown to the last days of the tenure of the current administration on 29th May, 2019”.
“The situation becomes more worrisome knowing that the outgoing Rochas Okorocha administration has displayed manifest lack of interest in defending government properties since the March 9th, 2019 governorship election, which saw Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP emerge victorious. Disappointedly, no official of the outgoing administration has shown sufficient will to protect government property as they prepare to hand over to the incoming administration”.
“As the party that has been entrusted with governance and the mandate of Imo people from the 29th of May, 2019, we believe it will be irresponsible for the PDP in Imo State to sit and watch while government properties are being destroyed, looted and carted away with reckless abandon and without any inhibition just because the time for handing over is still ahead”.
The PDP in her desire to curtail the negligence as alleged wants the” Traditional Rulers, Town Union and Village Associations, Youth Bodies and Local Vigilant Services and the public to rise up and protect all government facilities, properties or public infrastructure within their domain”.
“We equally call on security agencies to be on the alert and ensure that government property are not only protected but equally arrest anyone tampering with them”.
Moreso,the party wants the Civil servants heads MDGS and Parastatals to be on the watch as they will be held accountable for missing government property within their care.
