The Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, says he ordered the freezing of the accounts of the state government because of the Supreme Court judgement declaring him as the duly elected governor of the state on Tuesday.

In a letter dated January 14, 2020, Uzodinma ordered all financial institutions where the state funds are maintained not to honour any draft till further notice.

The letter addressed to the regional directors and managers of all the financial institutions in Imo State and signed by Cosmos Iwu, director-general of Senator Hope Uzodinma Campaign Organisation, on behalf of the governor-elect, ordered the financial institutions to “post no debit” on all the accounts.

The letter which was titled, “Order of post no debit on all accounts of Imo State government effective 14, January 2020” stated that the order was sequel to the supreme court judgment which declared Uzodinma the new governor of the state.
