Dr Theodore Ekechi, the convener of the Forum, advised the governor to respect his office and stop engaging in activities that are insulting to his position.
He condemned the protests allegedly sponsored by the governor, describing such action as “senseless.’’
“We wish to draw the attention of security agencies and the general public to the spate of senseless protests which we believe are being sponsored by the governor of Imo.
“We particularly draw attention to the sponsored protests of 17th and 23rd of May, at the APC headquarters and by hired miscreants against our coalition and Sen. Osita Izunaso in particular.
“From the conduct of the so called protesters, it was self-evident that they did not even know why their services were procured,’’ he said.
Ekechi warned that the sustenance of such senseless protests with Imo tax payers’ money “portends very grave danger.’’
He said that this was being done in a bid to blackmail the state stakeholders’ and some members of the APC National Working Committee (NWC).
There had been a running battle between the governor and APC stakeholders’ in the state.
The governor is currently contesting the outcome of the APC ward, local government and state congresses held in the state.
