– Says, Normalcy Has Been Restored
The Sole Administrator of Orsu Local Government Area of Imo State Hon. Onyekachukwu Matthew Ezenwa has declared that there will be no more sit-at-home in his Council Area.
Hon. Ezenwa revealed that their recent strategic stakeholders meeting has yielded positive development as his absconding people have all come back home.
He regretted the unpleasant effects of the insecurity that pervaded the Communities of his Council Area as well as some parts of Orlu Zone of the State describing it as the handiwork of bandits and enemies of government.
He also commended the Executive Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodimma for his relentless efforts in the fight against the insurgency and hoodlums adding that his people are happy with him for creating enabling environment for them to return home peacefully.
In his words, “Governor Hope Uzodimma has done well in ensuring that peace returns to Orsu,but I can assure you that the last Orsu stakeholders meeting in Owerri has complimented the efforts of the governor. So, Orsu has been captured back from the bandits as our people have realized their mistakes by earlier considering the insecurity as a political issue, but now it’s certain that the issue of insecurity in Orsu is completely responsible by banditry, not”.
“The security operatives have done well to get rid of some of the bandit kingpins as some of them have met their Waterloo.
My happiness is that our people have found out the truth. The insecurity is not a political party affair, but the handiwork of men of the under-world. I am happy that my people have come out en-masse to seek for the solution.
So, with the efforts of the stakeholders and Governor Hope Uzodimma, the issue of insecurity has become a thing of the past”.
He further said, “we have to commend the Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma for granting amnesty to the repentant hoodlums. This is a golden opportunity for them to turn new leaves, and my people on their own, have also marshalled out formulae to reintegrate any of the hoodlums who forsakes his evil actions. We shall ensure that they are assisted to do good work. Let those in the bush come back to the community and surrender their arms as Governor Hope Uzodimma has promised to pardon them.
Security operatives must also be commended for doing their best to quell the tide of insecurity in Orsu Council Area where property and human lives worth billions of naira were lost. We have started renovating some of the damaged structures including, police Station Council buildings at Awo Idemili and many others”.
The Sole Administrator further advised traders and commercial motorists to go about their lawful businesses as normalcy has been restored in the area.
