Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, has signed into law, two bills: Licensing and Control of Oil Mills, and Traditional Institutions, Community Government Council and other matters thereof.
Uzodinma said the bill on Licensing and Control of Oil Mills, when fully applied, would contribute in no small measure to the economic growth of the state.
He said the law would check vandalism of government-owned oil palm plantations in the state, especially in Adapalm and its environs in Ohaji Egbema Local Government Area.
The governor also stated that his Administration is working on a law to establish community policing to enable the Government and communities collaborate more on security issues.
The bill is said to collapse some of the existing security outfits while harmonizing the viable ones to ensure a more holistic approach to tackling security issues in the State.
