''No Hiding Place For IPOB Members In Anambra''- Governor Obiano Willie..
The Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, on Sunday said his government had aligned itself completely with the decisions of the South-East governors on the proscription of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
The governor, who spoke through a statement issued by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Tony Nnacheta, said there would be no hiding place for mischief makers and anyone wishing to upset the peace in the state.
Obiano maintained that he would implement the decisions of the South-East governors to the letter in Anambra State.
The statement read in part, “Sequel to the decision of the South-East Governors’ Forum, which met on the 15th of September, 2017 in Enugu, where amongst other decisions, was the proscription of the activities of Indigenous People of Biafra, the Government of Anambra State wishes to state as follows:
“Government aligns itself with the clarion call from the South-East governors advising all persons with grievances and anxiety to transmit their position through prescribed channels of elected representatives to the forum.
“Government is also firmly in support of the restructuring agenda as announced by the governors’ forum and encourages Ndi Anambra to articulate their thoughts to follow through on this issue.”
It added, “The safety of Ndi Anambra and all residents in Anambra, the security of their lives, properties and environment are cardinal priorities of the Willie Obiano Administration, which has ensured that everyone goes about freely within our environment without let or hindrance.
“Government is determined to sustain this culture and our improved way of living and is therefore appreciative of the peaceful conduct and collaboration by all persons and agencies which has led to the acknowledgement of Anambra being the safest state in Nigeria”
He assured residents that there was no refuge or room for mischief makers and anyone, adding that security agencies had assured the government that there would be no infiltration by mischief makers.
