In what appears to be a mistake, Hope Uzodimma, governor of Imo State, has said leaders in the South-east are supporting President Muhammadu because he is “insensitive” to the desires of Imo people.
According to TheCable, Uzodimma said this last Thursday, while speaking on Channels Television on Buhari’s visit to the state.
Buhari had visited Imo to commission some projects executed by the governor.
Before the President’s visit, the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had declared a sit-at-home order in the state, and said the president is not welcoming in the South-east.
Speaking after the Buhari’s visit, Uzodimma said the region was happy with the visit.
“What is important to me is that Mr President visited and you could see the excitement of the entire Igbo nation. The leadership received Mr President, commended Mr President, pledged to support Mr President’s government and policies,” he said.
“When we say this, we mean it. We meant every inch of the word — that we are supporting the president; we are supporting his administration, and we are supporting his policies, because Mr President has shown sufficient interest in terms of pragmatic approach in listening and being insensitive to the yearnings of Imolites and Igbo people in general.”
