Hope Uzodimma, governor of Imo, has stated that his administration will ensure collaborative efforts to restore peace in the south-east before the 2023 elections.
The governor spoke on Saturday at the south-east zonal stakeholders’ meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Owerri, the state capital.
At the event, Uzodimma took a swipe at opposition politicians and accused them of refusing to condemn killings, destruction of public properties, and other crimes in the zone.
“We will stop at nothing to ensure that peace is restored in south-east before the 2023 general election,” he said.“We must move forward. The day I will leave our state to non-state actors will never come.”
Speaking on the 2023 general election, the governor said the APC is in charge of twenty-two states, and expressed optimism that his party will secure victory across the states.
