The Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo CFR, has praised Sen. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah for purchasing 6000 streetlights with surveillance cameras and 1000 walkie-talkies for trained security personnel in the Anambra South district.
The Governor made this remark at the FC Ifeanyi Ubah International Stadium, Nnewi/Ozubulu during the Anambra South Security Surveillance and Information Technology Summit.
The Senator will install 6000 streetlights with surveillance cameras in the 119 wards of Anambra South, and the Governor announced that 1000 walkie-talkies will be given to the trained security officers.
“Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah is a true onye Anambra, so I appreciate, congratulate, and applaud him on behalf of the Government and Great People of Anambra. We gladly accept this gift in exchange for the safety of Anambra South.
Soludo stated, “We must ensure that the skilled security people adhere to the Anambra State Vigilante Law and Police Law.”
Governor Soludo gave the Senator his word that the Solution Security team, made up of the Commissioner of Homeland Affairs, Chief Chikodi Anarah, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, AVM Ben Chiobi, and the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr. Ernest Ezeajughi, would work with him to make sure the security agencies were operating cooperatively to fit within the system’s architecture and that all the technology was properly set up.
“I must express my sincere gratitude to Sen. Ifeanyichukwu Ubah for coming up with this specific idea to secure Anambra South.
“The seven local governments in Anambra South, including Ogbaru, were under siege when I took office. Because of the gun violence and homicides that were occurring at the time, we didn’t conduct campaigns in these areas adequately.
“We made the decision to take on these crooks and retake our state.
“Everyone’s job is to protect lives and property. Men, women, and children all have a part to play. Speak up if you see something. If there is anything for you to do, it is.
“We reactivated the Anambra State Security Trust Fund and requested donations from the people of ndi Anambra. Since we shall be developing Anambra State together, many people responded to our invitation by providing cash, vehicles, technology, and other items.
Soludo insisted, “We have come today to honor one such big endeavor.
The Governor disclosed that after the election, he met with representatives from each political party in Anambra and pleaded with them to put partisan politics aside since administration belonged to everyone.
He also said his agenda is development of Anambra!
Soludo emphasized, “I’m asking members of the National Assembly regardless of party affiliation that we should work together for the development of Anambra.
The celebration today is an Anambra event, not a political one, hence the Governor commended the Senator for his order not to fly political insignia on this historic day.
He also praised him for building the Ifeanyi Ubah Stadium, calling it a great structure and promising to build upon it.
In his previous speech, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah congratulated the Governor for keeping his promise to visit Nnewi.
“We have come to inform all of our adversaries who have predicted that Anambra South will not prosper that we will permanently sweep out all criminal elements in collaboration with the State Government.”
We have developed a project called “Secure Anambra South Project” to combat security issues. Political parties are not being crowned here.
“What we are seeing here is a deliberate alliance between the offices of the Anambra South Senatorial District and the Anambra State Executive Governor.
“The initial group of trained personnel is here. To ensure that investors going to invest in the state won’t be afraid, we are taking these steps.
“Our security will henceforth speak in every neighborhood with a single voice. We’ll set up communication and security devices (operation fire to fire)
“The installation of street lights is our initial phase, followed by the installation of surveillance cameras.
“Media propaganda is often the root of our problems. Do not believe voice communications if there is no accompanying photographic or video evidence, the senator advised, as this damages the state’s reputation.
In order to further up the fight against insecurity in the state, he asked the residents of Anambra State to support the state legislature and security apparatus.
6000 streetlight poles with surveillance cameras will be installed, according to AVM Ben Chiobi, who informed the governor that it will take personnel all day and night to complete the installation.
Additionally, he stated that well-trained staff members are prepared to work and that more than 1000 walkie-talkies with communication components have been bought.
The initiative, which has started in your senatorial district, is fantastic and in keeping with your pledge to use technology everywhere, notably in security, he remarked.
Chief of Staff, Mr Ernest Ezeajughi, Special Adviser to the Governor on Security AVM Ben Chiobi, Anambra Exco Members amongst others were present at the summit.
