Imo State Governor-elect, Senator Hope Uzodinma, has on Tuesday ordered all financial institutions not to honour any draft until further notice.
The order dated January 14th, 2020, was issued moments after the Supreme Court sacked Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples’Democratic Party, and declared him (Uzodinma) of the All Progressives Congress as the democratically elected governor of the State.
The letter was addressed to the regional directors and managers of all the financial institutions in Imo State, and so by the Director-General of Senator Hope Uzodinma campaign organisation, Cosmos Iwu on behalf of the governor-elect.
The letter labelled “Order of post no debit on all accounts of Imo State government effective 14, January 2020, read: “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.
“You are by this letter directed to comply and await further instructions from the office of his excellency, the executive governor of Imo state. Thanks for your cooperation.”
