Leave IPOB alone, fight against marginalisation of Imo oil-producing communities – HURIWA tells Uzodinma
The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has challenged Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State to stop chasing members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Eastern Security Network, ESN, around and focus on fighting for the marginalised oil producing communities in the state.
Addressing the press in Abuja on Tuesday, National Coordinator of HURIWA, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko; and National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf; and Project Director, Queen Onwughalu, the group insisted that the Governor has been in politics long enough to fight for the rights of his people.
“When you have a state like Imo … an APC controlled state, I don’t see why Hope Uzodinma should not fight for his people to get what rightly belongs to them,” the group said.
“That doesn’t seem to be his problem. Maybe his problem is chasing ESN and IPOB everywhere. You know, people have different agenda…I’m from Imo State and Hope is from Imo State but everybody has his or her own agenda.
“Let us remind Hope Uzodinma that the oil producing communities in his own state are being marginalised. We are not blaming APC for that.
“APC has just been in power for six years…Hope is also part of the problem because he has been in PDP from day one.
“So if we have to blame anyone, Hope should take it upon himself having been a founding member of the ruling party to ensure this injustice is corrected.”
