Representatives of special equipment of the South-East region and uniforms
The Southeast Governors’ Forum has said it is ready to submit cars and uniforms to the regional security bureau.
At a press briefing yesterday after a special meeting of the Security Council in Abakaliki, the President of the Forum and Governor of Ebony State Mr. David Umahi noted that the name of the regional security group had not been chosen.
However, he added that regional governors will meet to decide what to name the dress.
“The governors of the South-East held a series of meetings on security issues. We are currently distributing samples of the uniform that will be distributed in the South-East. We are also exhibiting cars that will also be common for the entire Southeast region. “
“We have organized training and retraining of all protective equipment in the area. In the next few weeks, we will begin releasing this uniform and vehicles to further deepen our efforts and security architecture in the South East. ” He explained.
Umahi, who expressed optimism that the southeast remains the most peaceful part of the country, complained that the security pockets in his state were politically motivated.
However, he assured that those who violate the security rules in the state, regardless of their political views, will be arrested and prosecuted in accordance with the country’s legislation.
“Whether it’s PDP, APC, APGA, whoever is causing the problem must be stopped and eliminated.”
He argued that the Fulani and Ebony shepherds have long lived in peace, adding that any action aimed at causing discontent between the two parties was aimed at discrediting him and the residents of Ebony State.
“Concerns about security are growing in the state, and this has a lot of political overtones. The idea is to discredit the governor of the state. If not managed properly, this will lead to attacks on our brothers and sisters. We peacefully leave with the Fulani shepherds for the state.
“We have an agreement with the Fulani shepherds for peaceful coexistence. The question of IPOB and Fulani shepherds is very delicate. If not properly managed, it will create a crisis for the entire country.
“We have over 11 million Igbo in the North and three million in the West. The issue of fomenting a crisis against the Fulani must be condemned by all. He will consume everyone. The security issue is very serious.
“There is a deliberate plan to portray Ebony State and its governor in a negative light. I don’t know why all the attention is focused on me. What is happening goes beyond politics and can trigger national crises.
“We had a meeting with the founding fathers of the state: Dr. Sam Egwu, Senator Anim Pius Anim. There must be a ceasefire. Government officials should not target dignitaries in the state. I made the decision of the founding fathers.
“Let’s face it with our party and our government. The governors of the South-East held a meeting on security issues. We are going to introduce the typical South East uniforms and vehicles to properly protect life and property.
“Congratulations to the new leadership of Ohanaese Ndigbo. They must return the wounded, injured during the elections. “
