Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano on Sunday said his government has aligned itself completely with the decisions of the South-East governors in the proscription of the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The governor, who disclosed this in a statement by his commissioner for information and strategy, Tony Nnacheta, said there would be no hiding place for mischief makers and anyone seeking to disturb the peace in Anambra State.
He enjoined the people of the state to be vigilant, adding that the security and welfare of the people in the area were paramount to his government.
Mr. Obiano said maximum security coverage would be provided for places of worship of all faiths, housing settlements of non-indigenes, motor parks and all other public places to guarantee the peace and safety of all.
“Sequel to the decision of the South-East Governors Forum, which met on the 15th of September, 2017, at 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.
“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 hindrance,” the governor said in the statement.
