The Governor of Imo, Senator Hope Uzodimma says politicians against the All Progressives Congress (APC) were behind the incessant attacks on the people of the state.

Uzodimma said this on Sunday while speaking with journalists in Lagos.

He said that the full identities of the sponsors of the killings in the state would be revealed within two weeks.

According to him, security agencies were currently investigating the sponsors of the attacks and their identities would be revealed after the investigations.

“Politicians against the ruling All Progressives Congress are behind the killings and maiming in the state and I vow to name them. However, I had a meeting with security agencies who pleaded that naming the sponsors when the investigation is still going on could jeopardise the efforts.

“The last time I contacted them a few days ago, they requested two more weeks. I do hope that in two weeks, the report would be ready and then it would be made public to Nigerians.”

Meanwhile, Uzodimma expressed support for the clamour for South East presidency in 2023.

He stated that having a president from the geopolitical zone would address the restiveness currently being experienced in the zone.

“Every political party is after candidates’ capacity to win elections. In the South-East, we are ready to produce the President of Nigeria. There is a national sympathy for the South-East to produce the President. What will make it work is for the two leading political parties to produce candidates from the South-East geopolitical zone.

“Let the Peoples Democratic Party produce a South-Easterner as their presidential candidate. Let the APC also produce a South-Easterner as their presidential candidate. With this, we would have centralised this power-sharing in a manner that it has become all-inclusive and justice and equity would have been seen to be done,” Uzodimma said.
