BIANCA OJUKWU BEGS GOVERNOR OBIANO TO ATTEND TODAY’S SOUTH EAST EMERGENCY SECURITY MEETING INSTEAD OF SENDING DEPUTY
Ahead of the South East Emergency Security Meeting scheduled to hold today, 5th October, 2021, Iyom Bianca Odumegwu Ojukwu has launched a passionate public appeal under the caption: #ObianopleaseAttend aimed at getting Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State to attend the meeting, physically.
Recall that in recent times, Governor Obiano has been represented in all regional Governors’ meetings by his Deputy, Engr. Dr. Nkem Okeke.
The statement reads as follows:
“An emergency South East Governors meeting is taking place tomorrow 5th October 2021 to discuss the worsening state of insecurity in the zone, particularly in Anambra State which has become a crisis point as a result of the impending guber elections
All S.E governors have been requested to attend IN PERSON and not in representative capacity. I am appealing, together with All concerned citizens of Anambra to our governor, Chief Willie Obiano to PHYSICALLY attend this meeting. Anambra is boiling. It’s no longer just a matter of unknown gunmen….even Politically motivated and other opportunistic killings have now become subsumed under this heading.
Just last week 8 people, including an illustrious Son, Dr Chike Akunyili , were gruesomely murdered in different locations of the state….yet, no executive condolence visits. Yesterday, Unizik Teaching Hospital was invaded by rampaging gunmen and a student was shot dead, with another killing and other casualties reported overnight.
Anambra state is in mayhem; people are postponing funerals and other activities and many Anambra indigenes resident abroad are canceling their Christmas return trips.
I am appealing to Governor Willie Obiano, who is yet again, planning to send his Deputy to represent him, to reconsider this approach. This is not business as usual…our people are being gunned down almost on a daily basis.
As our governor, he is the Chief Security Officer of the State. If he is hale and hearty enough to undertake ceaseless sightseeing excursions to the Anambra Airport Construction Site, I believe it will not be too much to ask that he sacrifices some of this precious time to attend this important security meeting for the sake, not only of Ndi Anambra But Ndi Igbo as a whole.
Umunnem, Our previous campaign with the #SOS (#signobianosign) Anti Open Grazing Bill yielded fruit as the Anambra House Of Assembly is presently intensifying efforts to prepare and present the Bill for him to sign into Law.
Our State is burning. let’s all join hands yet again to save it.
All well meaning citizens should Kindly join this appeal to the governor by posting the hashtag below👇👇
