Uzodimma denies purported comment on study of History


Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has distanced himself completely from a social media report where he was alleged to have criticised Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, over his position on the reintroduction of history in schools.

Governor Soludo had recently suggested that the reintroduction of History in Anambra State’s school curriculum will go a long way in ensuring that the people know where they were coming from and where they are going.

But Governor Uzodimma was quoted in a Facebook post as saying the “re-introduction of History subject by Soludo will bring about bitterness against Nigerian government, (it) cannot stand.”

Governor Uzodimma has however said the report credited to him on Facebook was done by depraved minds who will never see anything good in what someone does, including the suggestion made by Governor Soludo on the reitroduction of history in our schools which he said is long overdue.

“It is only those who do not have anything to contribute to the society that would be against their history. Governor Soludo could not have been wrong in his suggestion that a people’s history is key to their progress and development. Most developed countries of the World do not joke with their history just as the world is replete with the history of great men and women.”

Governor Uzodimma, therefore, urged the public to disregard the report and remain positive in all things.
