Imo indigenes and residents in the 367 autonomous communities in the 27 Local Councils are complaining of intense hardships they are going through as a result of the scarcity of fuel, electricity power outage and hot weather.

Those who spoke to The Guardian on the matter include a former two- term Imo State House of Assembly member, Mr Oliver Enwerenem; rights activist, Emeka Onomamadu; Executive Director of a Non-Governmental Organisation, Noki Ebikam and Imo Youths Movement (IYM) President, Ambrose Amadi among others.

They all called for immediate intervention and application of people-friendly policies to cushion the effect of the economic crunch facing Nigerians.

Enwerenem said: “The Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari should know that many people die in droves in many rural communities as a result of all manner of sufferings, such as hunger, lack of supply of electricity supply, scorching hot weather among others.
