The Senator representing Anambra South district, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, Tuesday, donated a total of 6000 Streetlights with surveillance cameras, 1000 walkie talkies, trained personnel and others to Anambra state government.
Ubah handed over the security details to Governor Chukwuma Soludo at FC Ifeanyi Ubah International Stadium, Nnewi/Ozubulu during the Anambra South Security Surveillance and Information Technology Summit.
According to him, the gesture was part of his “Secure Anambra South Project” aimed at combating security issues and wiping out criminal elements permanently.
“What we are seeing here is a deliberate alliance between the offices of the Anambra South Senatorial District and the government of the State. The initial group of trained personnel is here to protect the investments as well as to ensure in collaboration with other security agencies that investors coming to invest in the state won’t be afraid,” he stated.
Responding, governor Soludo described Ubah as “a true onye Anambra, so I appreciate, congratulate, and applaud him on behalf of the government and good people of Anambra. We gladly accept this gift for the safety of Anambra South.”
He further reassured the citizenry that the security equipment would be utilised even as the skilled security people were posed to adhere to the Anambra State Vigilante Law and Police Act.
