FUEL SCARCITY : Sen Anyanwu Calls On Imo Govt To Restore Order


Sen Anyanwu Speaks On Living Condition Of Imolites

....Says “Imo People Have Suffered A Lot In 12 Months ”. 

Following the indefinite strike embarked upon by petroleum marketers in Imo state, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Samuel Anyanwu has in a statement issued on Friday August  27 2021, pleaded with the APC led government in the state to urgently restore order.

In his statement, Anyanwu maintained that every administration ought to have known the continuum in governance, adding that the present government in the state should have been proactive to accept both the assets and liability.

According to him,

“if previous administration in the state demolished a fuel station belonging to a businessman illegally and court judgement obtained in favor of the victim, a sane government ought to have dialogue with the concerned body to maintain peace and order”. 

He therefore bemoaned the APC administration in the state for allowing the masses groan in pains and hunger over the scarcity of petroleum, pointing out that if government machineries were active, the situation would not have degenerated to this level.

“A serious government should know when to play politics and time to steer governance, this particular issue would have been remedied if APC administration in the state is really prepared for governance. Imo people have suffered a lot of untold hardship within twelve months; from Covid-19 lockdown, to EndSars protests, to Unknown gunmen and now, scarcity of fuel in the state”

Senator Anyanwu further called on Leaders at all levels to stop playing politics with the masses, saying that when government’s programmes and actions are politicized, interested people begin to withdraw support from the institution.

He however sympathized with Imo people over what they are passing through in the state, appealing to them not to allow the current situation lure them into crime.
