Uzodimma freezes all Imo accounts…to probe past govs

The order came late on Tuesday hours after the Supreme Court declared the APC candidate the duly elected governor of the state.

A letter was addressed to the regional directors and managers of all the financial institutions in Imo State, and was signed by Cosmos Iwu, Director General of Senator Hope Uzodinma Campaign Organisation.

The three-paragraph letter which was sighted by one of our correspondents on Wednesday read in part, “Following the Supreme Court judgment of 14th January, 2020, I am directed by His Excellency, Senator Hope Uzodinma, to take this as your authority to place a post no debit order on all accounts of the Imo State Government maintained in your various institutions.

The new governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, on Wednesday initiated the process of the probe of contracts awarded from 2010 till date in the state.

He also sought the comprehensive financial status of the state within the same period.

Former governors Ikedi Ohakim, Rochas Okorocha and Emeka Ihedioha were in charge of the state during the period.

The governor gave the order in his inaugural speech, after he was sworn in.

He said his administration was anchored on rehabilitation, reconstruction and recovery.

According to him, he will revive the state and make it work again.

The governor said, “My government shall be anchored on reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery. Every Imo person shall have a say in my government.

“My doors are wide open. I forgive those who conspired to rob me of my hard-earned mandate. Let us work hard to make Imo the pride of Nigeria
