Imolites Angry Over Sun Governor Award on Uzodinma

ThankGod Emeh.

The majority of Imo people have expressed worry over the recently SUN Governor award conferred on Governor Hope Uzodinma by the Sun Publications Company, calling it an unmerited feat and act of sycophancy.

With the award and celebrations surrounding it making rounds the media is faced with mixed feelings and reactions from Imo people who couldn’t bottle their opinions but tell to any listening ear.

Speaking on the award, a promising youth in the state, Emeka Ejezie said the timing of the award is very bad owing to security issues and concerns in the state, adding that the Governor being the Chief Security Officer of the state in the face of the ugly security developments is an impediment on the award.

He noted that the SUN award is a holistic award hence shouldn’t come at this time if the state governor has merited it by their yardstick.

Another Imolite, Mr John Uwalaka said the award seem

politically motivated because the publisher was seen all over the awardee as if there is writing on the wall.

Mr Uwalaka stressed that everything shouldn’t be politicized especially the award which has stood out over the years and as well been widely celebrated.

The angry citizens went further to blame organizations Congratulating the Governor on the award, stressing that they are all sycophants, playing lip and eye service.

The people said the Governor should be focused to work instead of celebrating an award that has many criteria to fill.
