Renowned politician, Chris Ejike Uche has decried what he called “hogwash, hiccups and mob type” of growth in Imo State, noting that the so called “Urban Renewal Programme” of the current administration is turning into “urban destruction.”

Speaking during a reception organized in his honour by UPP executives, Orlu zone, Sept. 4, Ejike Uche who is the Deputy National Chairman UPP (South) said the present administration has not established any industry since inception, rather, the ones established by late Governor Sam Mbakwe have all been erased. He listed the industries as – Shoe Industry, Abutu Poultry, Tile Industry, Adapalm, Concorde Hotel etc.

“The contract which Imo people entered with Governor Okorocha in 2011 towards providing good governance and dividends of democracy have been betrayed via empty grandstanding and loquacious gerrymandering, intimidation, oppression and lately descent of the state into anarchy,” the UPP leader said.

Chief Uche popularly called Dimkpa Asaa did not spare Imo traditional rulers, noting that they have become a source of embarrassment to their subjects. Instead of being protectors of our value system, they have become mere masquerades to the people.

Dimkpa Asaa further observed that the youth have been completely sidelined and instead of making them relevant and meaningful in the administration of the state, they have been turned into bag carriers for the “oppressors and their in-laws.” He promised that UPP government will ensure that no youth would be used for hatchet job.

The former Commissioner in Imo State thanked Orlu UPP executive for the honour done him and Prof. Dike assuring them that UPP will carry Orluzurume along in choosing a gubernatorial candidate in 2019.

Earlier in his address, at the reception held at Ihioma Civic Centre, the Orlu Zonal Chairman of the party, Chief Ogwuagu Udom described Dimkpa Asaa and Prof. Francis Dike (who was similarly honoured) as good and worthy ambassadors of Orlu zone who should be identified with and taken seriously because of their track records of honesty, transparency, selfishness, undiluted compassion and commitment to the welfare of the masses.

He said UPP has come to save Imolites from the shackles of oppression, impunity, bad governance, lack of due process and disregard for the rule of law.
