Your grave is not far away, if B’Haram did not kill you Biafrans will. You were among the evil men who soiled the land and your panic right now is just what a chameleon. You lack the moral standing to make this call! ::|:: Boko Haram: Iwuanyanwu places South East govs on security alert.
The Publisher of Champion Newspapers Limited, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has urged the South East governors to be security conscious in the face of daily bomb attacks in some parts of the country by the Boko Haram insurgents, whom he said could not be predicted.
Chief Iwuanyanwu, who gave the warning at Isseke in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State during the traditional wedding of Princess Akwaugo Nnabuife, daughter of Emmanuel Nnabuife, the Igwe of Isseke, said from all indications, the targets of the insurgents were churches, schools, markets, health institutions and wherever people were seen in large numbers. He said there was need for non-stop sensitisation of the citizenry in the entire South East to be security conscious and report suspicious movements to law enforcement agencies for prompt action. The publisher said more bomb detecting gadgets should be made available in the South East and other parts of the country to enable early detection of hidden explosives.
He said any attempt to derail the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan would amount to disunity of the nation, which he said was not in the best interest of the country. He said President Jonathan should be given a chance to concentrate in his effort to deliver the nation from the shackles of poverty, youth unemployment and provide other dividends of democracy.
Iwuanyanwu commended Igwe Nnabuife for his contributions to the economic development of his ancient kingdom and sustenance of customs and tradition of the Igbo people, as he wished the Igwe’s daughter and her husband a happy marital life.
Governor Willie Obiano, who was represented on the occasion by his Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters, Mrs. Azuka Enemuo, said the Igwe of Isseke had contributed a lot to the cultural revival in Igbo land and appealed to other traditional rulers to follow suit, noting that tradition instilled discipline in the citizens.
Igwe Nnabuife, in his statement, called on Nigerians to embrace peace without which there would not be any meaningful economic and political development, saying that religion should not be seen as an instrument for perpetrating insurgency.
Over 70 traditional rulers from all parts of the South East graced the occasion.
