Emeka Ihedioha has been the center of rumors spreading of his intentions to witch-hunt the opposition, the outgoing governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha, and indigenes of the state who didn’t support or vote for him during the 2019 governorship elections.
How true is this?
Well, Ihedioha has reacted to this news, giving his assurance that his administration will not witch-hunt anyone or group who did not support or vote for his party.
The governor-elect of the Eastern heartland, according to him, stated, “I want to re-assure Imo people that I will not witch-hunt anybody or group who neither voted for me nor my party in the last election. I had already extended my hands of fellowship to the former governorship contestants immediately the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared me winner.”
The governor-elect equally used the opportunity to appeal to all stakeholders in the state to join hands with him to “rebuild Imo and transform it to the Imo of our collective dreams.”
While assuring the traditional rulers that his “administration will uphold rule of law, accountability, transparency and due process at all times,” Ihedioha also charged the monarchs to “ensure that they identify the bad eggs within their various communities and report such people to the relevant security agency for immediate action.”
