Barely two weeks after gunmen swooped on participants of a political meeting at Isuofia community in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra state, Prof. Charles Soludo has commissioned a security van donated by Ihuekili Progressive Union, Igboukwu, near Isuofia.
The security van was procured by Ihuekili village, Igboukwu in support of Governor Willie Obiano‘s efforts at ensuring that Anambra remains the safest state in the country, despite recent security challenges.
Soludo performed the ceremony during a Grand Civic Reception organized by the Ihuekili Progressive Union, IPU, Igboukwu, in honour of their illustrious son, Hon. Eche Ezeibe, the incumbent Chairman of Aguata Local Government Transition Committee, however, did not mention the attack on him but rather showered abundant praises on the leaders of Ihuekili village for well-thought-out programmes of procuring the security van and conducting a grand civic reception for their son.
While Soludo was still making his speech, a little drama played out as Chief John Bosco Onunkwo, another governorship contestant under the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC arrived at the venue of the event as a special invitee and after welcoming him, Soludo turned to him and said: “My friend, Onunkwo will govern Anambra state but that will be after my tenure on the seat”.
“So, both Onunkwo and other contestants are eminently qualified to become the governor of Anambra state but they have to exercise patience and allow me to go ahead of them and reposition the state and after my tenure, they would now come on board”.
In his speech, the Aguata Transition Committee Chairman, Hon. Ezeibe, called for prayers to stop further killings of Security agents by unknown gunmen in the state in particular and other parts of the South East and South-South geopolitical zones of the country, as witnessed in the recent past.
Ezeibe, who called for an observation of a minute silence for the security personnel so far killed by gunmen in the council area which he put at about five in number as the worst hit, including the two officers killed at Nkpologwu, the three killed at Isuofia and the police station razed at Ekwulobia, declared: “It is time to pray for God’s protection”.
Earlier in a welcome address, Chairman of IPU, Igboukwu, Barr Kingsley Ezeibe extolled Governor Obiano for appointing and retaining Ezeibe, their kinsman as Transition Committee Chairman, saying that if calculated with regards to the legal tenure of council chairmen, Hon. Ezeibe is currently serving his second tenure.
The event also featured award presentations to some dignitaries, including Prof. Soludo; former Deputy Governor of Anambra state, Emeka Sibeudu, Anambra Commissioner for Health, Dr Vincent Okpala, JEZCO Oil boss, Chief Sir. Joseph Ezeokafor, Tincan Boss Ezeafunwa, among others.
