A campaign rally led by Governor Hope Uzodimma at Imo State University turned chaotic as students expressed their dissatisfaction by booing the governor and chanting ‘No Light.’
The widely circulated video of the incident has sparked conversations on social media, shedding light on the students’ discontentment with the Governor’s administration.
Governor Uzodimma, vying for a second term in the upcoming gubernatorial election in the state, was met with strong opposition from the students, who publicly voiced their concerns about the lack of consistent electricity.
The disruptive protest, a rare instance of public dissent during a political campaign, underscored the youth’s deep-seated worries regarding governance and essential services in the state.
This event occurs in the midst of a fiercely competitive election landscape, with Governor Uzodimma facing strong contenders, including Senator Athan Achonu of the Labour Party and Senator Sam Anyanwu of the Peoples Democratic Party.
