 Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has announced monetary reward for information on bandits operating in the state and their camps. 

He made the announcement on Tuesday, January 11, 2022, when he met with the key leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the State, Local Government Area and Ward levels. 

Speaking during the meeting held at the Sam Mbakwe Executive Chambers Government House Owerri, the Governor challenged the party leaders to rise against the tide of insecurity as his government has put in place measures to deal a final blow to it in the state. 

To achieve that, Governor Uzodimma announced a cash reward of N1 million and N5 million respectively to any person or group of persons who would provide information that could lead to the arrest of a bandit or identification of a camp of bandits in the state.  

Uzodimma reminded them that their positions in the party were critical to the ideals and vision  of the APC anchored on service to the people and that they could not afford to disappoint the people who trusted them with their mandate to lead them at the different levels. 

He urged them work hard to win more members for the party in their different localities and also never to shy away from admitting anyone who approaches them for membership regardless of their former political background. 

Governor Uzodimma said they would be doing themselves and the Party a great disservice if they discard inclusive politics. 

He reminded the APC faithful that he invited them to wish them a happy new year, a year he said “they will witness a lot of prosperity.” 

He said they are what they are in the party today because the APC is ruling at both the State and National levels. 

The Governor who is the leader of the party in the state told them that the bandits must have done their worst, saying they have failed because his government has been able to push the agents of darkness away to allow light to lead. 

Governor Uzodimma added that APC believes in the practice democracy as “Government of the people, by the people and for the people,” noting that the most important officers of the party are those at the Ward level and other localities in the state. 

He emphasised that the state leadership of the APC decided to open up the party at all levels to accommodate whoever wants to join. 

He therefore appealed to them to be united and exhibit such leadership qualities that will allow other people to join their party. He also requested them to “go home and serve the people, through regular meetings at all levels.” 

Those in attendance at the meeting with the Governor included the Chairman and members of APC State Working Committee, LGA Party Chairmen and their Secretaries and Ward Party Chairmen and their Secretaries. 

Earlier in his welcome remarks, the Chairman of APC in the State, Dr. Macdonald Ebere said that his executive has braced up for the challenge of repositioning the APC and making it the Party to beat. 

He assured the Governor and others in attendance that “the APC of yesterday is different from that of today” and that “the entire executive from the Ward to the State Level are all poised to work and achieve for the party.” 

In a vote of thanks, the Vice Chairman of APC in Imo State, Rt. Hon. Mathew Omegara, assured of the party’s readiness in the State to support the Governor in his quest to  realise the 3R mantra “now than before” and prayed God to strengthen Governor  Uzodimma and protect all members of APC in Imo State.
