Worried by the incessant attacks in Imo State, especially the burning of the country home of the President of the Ohaneze Ndigbo, Mr George Obiozor, over the weekend, President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned the Governor of Imo State, Mr Hope Uzodinma, to Abuja.

The President, at the time of filing this report, is having a meeting with Mr Uzodinma, over the security situation in his state.

Mr Buhari has also directed the Minister of Power, Mr Abubakar Aliyu, and his Chief Economic Adviser, Prof Doyin Salami, to be at the Presidential Villa for a crucial meeting.

A statement issued by Mr Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, disclosed that is to get updates on the epileptic electricity supply and the poor state of the economy.

“The President is scheduled to meet separately with them and he would be apprised of the latest developments in Imo State, the power sector and the state of the economy,” a part of the statement said.

“It would be recalled that the President while condemning the spate of violence in Imo State in the aftermath of the destruction of buildings and assets of the Police and the home of Prof. George Obiozor, President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, pledged to review the security situation in southeast Nigeria.

“President Buhari has also voiced his concern over the frequent power outages, apologising to Nigerians and assuring a quick relief to the situation,” the statement added.
