Businessman and chairman of Coscharis motors, Cosmas Maduka, loses wife

Imo state governor, Hope Uzodimma, has asked the Federal government to establish a special fund to compensate the south-east over the devastation of lives and property during the civil war.



Speaking on Wednesday, October 13, in Owerri, Imo state capital, as he declared open a zonal public hearing on the review of the revenue allocation sharing formula, Uzodinma said the special fund would provide succour to those who lost their properties and family members during the civil war.

I think the debacles of the civil war led the south-east into a deep poverty level; houses were burnt down, people were killed,” Uzodinma said.


“Only recently, a special law was enacted as the North-East Development Commission, arising from the disaster of Boko Haram incidents. But the 30-month civil war that ended in 1970 left the south-east in a state of penury.”


The governor said the south-east has suffered “great injustice” on how revenues accruing from the zone are shared.
