Imo state governor, Hope Uzodimma, has offered to grant Amnesty to bandits who will surrender and turn a new leaf.
In a meeting with traditional rulers and community leaders held at Eze Imo Palace, Uzodimma advocated for peace and stability in the state with a good offer of rehabilitation to anyone willing to turn in their weapons through their traditional rulers.
He urged traditional rulers to put more effort to secure their communities and identify strangers causing trouble there.
“Security is the business of every law-abiding citizen and all hands must be on deck for Imo to thrive,” he said.
The governor also intimated them of the government’s policies and commitments to cushion the effects of the fuel subsidy removal which include the N40,000 minimum wage increase; free medicare and one meal per day for Imo workers and many more.
The governor encouraged every Imo citizen to get their social security numbers which will not only enable them to be identified but also benefit from both the state and federal government palliatives.
