We watched with shocking dismay the belittling theatre Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State staged in Abuja this week.
To say the least, Uzodinma’s stunt at Abuja boasting of an act he should cower from was self made ridicule. He deliberately jumped into similar mess Lagos State governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu got himself into on October 20, 2020 in the Lekki Toll gate massacre incident.
Almost all northern states are under the siege of armed ruthless killers, yet they act with circumspection and restraint against the shameful option Uzodinma took.
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State faced serious security challenges and found a way to resolve it and bring back peace.
Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu was even fought by the presidency, yet he held his ground to defend what was just and the right of the people he leads
Even Governor Bala Mohammed defends and wants herdsmen carry guns in self defence and has been in his self imposed sumersault defending his people that commit crime.
Uzodinma is the only good Nigerian that invited army to Orlu to start shooting dead the people he claims to be their leader
Mr. Governor, your act shows two things
*That you are incompetent to manage Imo State without external supervision
*That you act a script written by someone somewhere
You have taken a step that places you in a tight corner against your own people and posterity will remain your judge for this gross and unpardonable indiscretion.
And after your job was done, you hurried to Abuja to render your account to your puppet masters boasting how you brought army against your own people
It was simply shocking that the governor was at sea on how to defend his people with least pains and thumps his chest for that terrible misstep. Time reckons all we do with position and power.
