The Imo State governor, Hope Uzodimma, has been challenged by the African Democratic Congress (ADC) to conduct local government elections if he believes the All Progressives Congress (APC) is popular among the people and if he has good intentions for the youth.

This was said by the ADC in a statement released to journalists, by its National Vice Chairman for the South-East, Chilos Godsent.

According to the statement:

“ADC threw this challenge knowing fully well that a democratic local government council system in Imo State has the capacity to economically and politically empower over 10,000 youths of Imo State, including rapid development of rural communities and a drastic reduction in crimes.

“ADC recognizes that the democratic local government council system will enhance the leadership capacity and competence of the youths who will emerge as council chairmen, deputy council chairmen, councilors, supervisory councilors, etc.

“Furthermore, ADC wishes to align itself with the popular opinions in the State that a democratic local government system will drastically reduce insecurity and crime rates in the State because some of the youths who indulge in these organized gangs and crimes may be doing so because of joblessness, unemployment, and hardship that is currently ravaging our dear nation and State. That is why they say that an idle mind is a devil’s workshop.

“It is very unfortunate and unacceptable to note that since the past 16 years now previous and present government of Imo State has used local government caretaker committees, transition committees, and sole administrators as a conduit pipe to arbitrarily and recklessly enhance their looting of the local government council funds.

“Finally, ADC is committed to lead the struggle for regime change in Imo State.”
