The Nigerian Governors’ Forum has condemned the fire at the country home of Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, declaring that those responsible do not have a monopoly on violence for an act that takes criminality to reckless heights.
This was disclosed in a statement by NGF Chair and Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi.
What the NGF said
“For those behind these crimes, they must understand that they do not have the monopoly on violence. This is taking criminality to reckless and irresponsible heights.
All hands must be on deck to fish out the perpetrators of this dastardly act, as in our view, they constitute a small league of persons trying to harm the corporate existence of our beloved country, Nigeria.
The mantra for every Nigerian at such a challenging time in our history must be how to forge peace and unity across the nation’s divides, and to shun violence and wanton destruction. Only then can we have a country to call our own,” Fayemi said.
