An Imo State socio-political pressure group, the Imo League of Patriots, ILP, has taken a swipe at the administration of the Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma, describing it as an all-round failure in its first 100 days in office.
ILP, in a press statement signed by its Director of Publicity, Professor Luke Mgborokwu, and made available to newsmen in Owerri, said the first 100 days of Governor Uzodinma’s administration in the state is a disaster.
Frowning at what it described as the absence of direction and focus in the present administration, the ILP warned that the development may spell doom for the state, if the drivers of the administration do not take urgent steps to remedy the situation.
It said,“We have taken time to observe the present administration in the state in the last 100 days. We have assessed its performance, activities and programmes for the people of the state and there appears to be no direction. There is no clear roadmap on how to improve the lots of our people. We are in a critical period and this is not the time to leave anything to chance.
“After COVID-19, the economy of the world will not remain the same. The way the state government is going about tackling the COVID-19 challenge is unfortunate. The fact that there is no plan, whatsoever, on how the state will survive post COVID-19 period is even more worrisome. All we see and hear everyday are stories and diversionary tactics.
“The last 100 days is not anything to celebrate in the state. It was a disaster. The administration of Senator Hope Uzodinma is yet to show capacity in governance. It is our collective position that the first 100 days of this administration is an all-round failure. There is no sector of the economy that one can point to say that a good foundation has been laid by the present administration. The essence of this is to make the Uzodinma-led administration in the state to sit up and tackle governance issues head on.”
