•Ex-Governor Chime.
•Ex-Governor Chime.

These may certainly not be the best of times for immediate past governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime, as his Umuneke community, Udi Local Government Area of the state, yesterday, urged him to refrain from painting the community in bad light and face his case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

They stated that nothing would make them quit the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join him in his yet to be announced new political party.

Rising from their meeting held at the Udi Square, the six villages making up the community accused the former governor of neglecting his people in the eight years he superintended the state, stressing there was nothing to show he belonged to the community.

Efforts to speak with Chime, yesterday, proved abortive. But after quitting the PDP recently, he had insisted that he has no case with the EFCC, explaining that he was recently invited by the commission to clear areas of ambiguity with the N450m received by the state in 2015 for presidential election, when he was governor.

Addressing Journalists after the meeting, a former member of the House of Representatives for Udi/Ezeagu constituency, Chief Tony Gary Eneh, said the community warned him not to drag it into his problems, as the area suffered the worst humiliation under his administration.

He said: “It is a major regret and shame to say the last governor, who comes from this clan never believed that he is from Udi. He did nothing for his people. You cannot believe that from Nnachi to Udi, we do not have a bank. Udi used to have a bank in the 80’s. It is a shame that the hospital in Udi is still the same way it has been since the 70’s.

“The only secondary school that is here was built in the 70’s and our brother, who was there, did nothing to restructure and equip the place. Is it not a shame that the current governor is the one rehabilitating schools in Udi, when our son left there less than two years ago?

“So, if he has a case with the EFCC, let him go and face it. It is not our matter and he will not receive our support.
Six months before he left office, he called a meeting of Udi stakeholders and said it will not take him six months to rectify what he didn’t do in eight years. He said he was going to install a governor, who will do his bidding.

“Suddenly, after using the party to enjoy himself, he wants to rush into another party.
What is he going there to do? Who went there to declare with him? If he behaved himself, everybody in Udi would have identified with him now. As far as Umuneke is concerned, it is a shame to have him as governor.” (The Guardian)
