Watch the video below:
It has been reported that the lawmaker representing Imo West senatorial district, Rochas Okorocha has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress to look into what the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma has been doing in the state.
The former Governor of Imo State, in a statement released through his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, said the state Governor has started demolition of about sixteen pedestrian bridges he constructed while in office.
According to Okorocha, Uzodinma’s administration derives its strength and joy from the suffering and tears of Imo people.
Okorocha added that the people of the state are suffering due to the anti-people policies and actions of the Imo government.
He noted that pedestrian bridges that are being demolished by Uzodinma had been standing strong for more than eight years and had been in constant use by the people of Imo State.
