–Urges Imo People to Support Families of Victims

The Imo Progressives Movement (IPM) has vehemently condemned what it described ad despicable actions of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State in their disgraceful attempt to exploit a tragic accident for political gain.

The group in a release signed by Collins Opurozor as 

Director, Media and Publicity,  It stated that it is with deep sorrow and indignation that we address the insensitive and callous statement issued by the PDP, which seeks not to console the grieving families but rather to further their own political agenda.

The release continued,”The recent motor accident in Owerri, resulting in the loss of precious lives, is an immense tragedy that we mourn. Our hearts go out to the families and loved ones of the victims, and we extend our sincerest condolences to them during this difficult time. Such a heart-wrenching event calls for unity, compassion, and support, not the shameful politicization witnessed from the PDP.

“Instead of offering solace and support, the PDP has chosen to exploit this tragedy to launch baseless attacks on the government of Senator Hope Uzodimma. Their reckless and irresponsible behavior not only dishonors the memory of the deceased but also disrespects the grieving families who deserve empathy, support and prayers, not political grandstanding.

“It is deeply regrettable that the PDP has stooped to such levels of opportunism, using the pain and suffering of our fellow citizens as a tool for their own selfish interests. This shameful display of political gamesmanship is an anomie of indescribable proportion and mockery of our fallen brothers and sisters. It further underscores the lack of integrity and compassion within the ranks of the wobbling opposition party.

“IPM firmly stands against such reprehensible actions and calls on the PDP to immediately retract their statement and issue a public apology to the families of the victims. Furthermore, we urge all political parties and stakeholders to prioritize the well-being of our people above petty political gains and to unite in support of the affected communities.

In times of tragedy, it is the duty of every responsible leader to offer comfort, assistance, and solidarity to those in need. 

“IPM remains committed to upholding these values and working tirelessly to ensure the welfare and safety of all citizens of Imo State. Just like our National Convener, Rt. Hon. Eugene Dibiagwu (Ozurigbo), has already started doing, we call on well-meaning Imolites to also stand and be counted in support of the families of the victims.

“We further invite all individuals and organizations of good conscience to join us in condemning the PDP’s disgraceful behavior and standing in solidarity with the grieving families. Together, let us honor the memory of the departed by fostering unity, compassion, and resilience in the face of adversity”.
