Imo State governor-elect, Sen. Hope Uzodinma, has given an order to all financial institutions where the state funds are maintained not to honour any draft till further notice.
This order follows the Supreme Court declaration which pronounced him the duly elected governor of the state on Tuesday.
A letter addressed to the regional directors and managers of all the financial institutions in Imo State and signed by Cosmos Iwu, Director General of 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 a sequel to the apex court judgement which declared Uzodinma the new governor of the state.
“Following the Supreme Court judgment of 14, January 2020, I am directed by his excellency, Senator Hope Uzodinma, to take this as your authority/instruction to place a post no debit order on all accounts of the Imo state government maintained in your various institutions,” the letter said.
