Conduct LGA elections if APC is popular at grassroots – ADC tells Uzodinma

The African Democratic Congress, ADC, has challenged the Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State to conduct local government elections if he means well for youths and if he also thinks that the All Progressives Congress, APC, is popular at the grassroots.

The ADC stated this in a statement made available to newsmen by its National Vice Chairman, South-East, Chilos Godsent.

The statement reads, “ADC threw this challenge knowing fully well that a democratic local government council system in Imo State has the capacity to economically and politically empower over 10,000 youths of Imo State, including rapid development of rural communities and a drastic reduction in crimes.

“ADC recognizes that the democratic local government council system will enhance the leadership capacity and competence of the youths who will emerge as council chairmen, deputy council chairmen, councilors, supervisory councilors, etc.

“Furthermore, ADC wishes to align itself with the popular opinions in the State that a democratic local government system will drastically reduce insecurity and crime rates in the State because some of the youths who indulge in these organized gangs and crimes may be doing so because of joblessness, unemployment, and hardship that is currently ravaging our dear nation and State. That is why they say that an idle mind is a devil’s workshop.

“It is very unfortunate and unacceptable to note that since the past 16 years now previous and present government of Imo State has used local government caretaker committees, transition committees, and sole administrators as a conduit pipe to arbitrarily and recklessly enhance their looting of the local government council funds.

“Finally, ADC is committed to lead the struggle for regime change in Imo State.”
