The Anambra State government says it ready to deal with crime related issues during the yuletide period
The Anambra State government has promised to clamp down command and control centres of criminals in the state.
Governor Willie Obiano re-stated his resolve in providing adequate security in every nook and crannies during the yuletide season.
Obiano assured Ndi Anambra in The Diaspora that they would be safe and secure as they visit home, because his government had unveiled new measures to provide all-encompassing security to secure their lives and property.
The governor said this when he visited Upper Iweka, Onitsha, Anambra State, to switch on the Christmas lights, to mark beginning of the yuletide season.
Obiano recalled that Upper Iweka was once a notorious den of criminals, but was re-captured by his administration during a renewed security drive.
While commending security agencies in the state for their doggedness in securing the state, Obiano was hopeful that the 2018 Christmas season would attract massive investments to strengthen the state’s economy.
“We won’t take it lightly with criminals. We have fortified our communities and empowered security agencies, including vigilance groups.
“I warn those planning to perpetuate evil to refrain from such, as we will continue to make life unbearable for them.
“Every Onye Anambra is enjoined to feel free to come home; your security is assured. Bring your children home to enjoy the yuletide season in their villages,’’ Obiano added.
Obi Nwankwo, the commissioner for Power and Public Utility, commended Obiano for transforming the state to attain international standards.
Dignitaries at the occasion are Nkem Okeke, the deputy governor, members of the State House of Assembly led by Rita Mmaduagwu, the speaker, and security agencies in the state as well as political office holders.
