To achieve this, Uzodinma has inaugurated the implementation committee of White Paper on Lands and Other Related Matters.

The Committee, according to Uzodinma, would work towards recovering assets recommended by the state’s Judicial Commission of Inquiry.

Uzodinma, while speaking during the inauguration, said: “Your primary duties are to recover for Imo people all the assets gazetted in the White paper as set out in the recommendations of the Commission.”

“The White-paper on lands and related matters is unambiguous – it is now an established legal fact that lands and properties belonging to both the Government and the people were illegally acquired or appropriated.

“This is so because all such illegal acquisitions were identified by the Judicial Commission of Inquiry. Government accepted these recommendations and thereabout issued a White paper,” he said.
