Group berates Imo govt

The performance of the Imo State has been rated very low with the last one year described as a year of impoverishment.
A pro democracy civil society group in the state, Imo Bilie Initiative for Social Justice (IBIN) during a press briefing held in Owerri on Saturday the 28th of May to mark the 2016 democracy day scored the government low.
The group accused the government of creating hunger and poverty in the land through bad economic policies and politics of exclusion. They claim the projects executed by the Governor are of poor standard and quality.
Addressing journalists, the National coordinator, Comrade Aku Obidinma (Abdul), IBIN condemned the sack of workers, the cut in workers’ salaries and the subsequent inability to pay them for about four months, the nonpayment of pension stipends to pensioners for over two years now and closure of high institutions and courts in the state.
IBIN equally condemned the harassment and intimidation of critics and journalists by the government. Comrade Aku described the intense suffering and hardship in the state as government inflicted.
