Governor Hope Uzodinma, of Imo state has betrayed the Igbo race by backing out of the decision of the Southern Governors’ Forum to implement the anti-open grazing law in their respective states, the Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF), said on Friday.

The group in a statement signed by its Chairman, Media and Publicity Bureau, Chief Abia Onyike, said Gov. Uzodinma is no more an Igbo man by reneging on the decision of the Southern Governors’ Forum to implement the anti-open grazing law in their particular states.

ADF further said that Uzodinma required spiritual cleansing to avert the wrath of Igbo ancestors if, indeed, he had gone back on the decision of his colleagues to ban open grazing.

The statement reads:  “The Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF),  views the decision of Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, to back out of the decision of Southern Governors’ to implement anti-open grazing laws in their states, as an unfortunate betrayal of the Igbo race.

“By the action he has taken, he has unwittingly renounced his membership of the Igbo race, an act which, within the context of Igbo Culture and tradition is a sacrilege.

 “If indeed he has done so, nothing short of spiritual cleansing can abate the wrath of Igbo Ancestors. 

“We, therefore, advise him to quickly go for spiritual cleansing before he can be seen as a normal member of the Igbo race.

 “The anti-open grazing law is the most focal law in Igbo land today. It is needed and intended to protect the Igbo race and safeguard her ancestral lands.

“So, for any Igbo Governor or person for that matter to renounce the anti-open grazing law is a pointer that he subscribes to  the wiping  out  of  the Igbo race from existence. 

 “One of his lawyers has publicly acknowledged that there was an anti-open grazing law in Imo State, passed by the State House of Assembly during the tenure of former Governor Achike Udenwa, one of the predecessors of Gov. Hope Uzodinma.

“Thus what Gov. Uzodinma has done is to renounce an existing law made in the interest of the people. This is an impeachable offence.

“Whether the present Imo state Legislature takes action to preserve the Constitutional order in Imo State or not,  Imo state cannot claim to have a legitimate Executive Governor in the present circumstances.

“May the Almighty God protect and preserve the people of Imo state, and return a Constitutional order to their besieged state.”
