The APGA leading governorship aspirant in the forthcoming Anambra governorship election Nze Akachukwu Sullivan Nwankpo has commended the Southeast governors for the initiative.
In a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday and circulated by his Director Media and Publicity Dr. Harris Chuma-Odili, the former presidential aide Nze Nwankpo said the governor’s decision to launch a regional security network codenamed “EBUBEAGU” is a welcome development, that it will address the worsening insecurity in the region.
“We must commend the governors of the six states of the Southeast for coming up with this initiative. We believe that “Ebubeagu” will address the issues of kidnapping, terrorists attacks, banditry, armed robberies and help flush out criminal elements that had held the region hostage.” The statement reads
The idea of Ebubeagu Security Network was mooted during a security summit at Owerri organised by the Southeast Governors in April 11, 2021 over the rising insecurity in the region.
The governors in attendance were, Governor of Abia State, Okezuo Ikpeazu, Anambra, Willie Obiano, Enugu, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Ebonyi, Dave Umahi and the host governor, Hope Uzodimma.
Also in attendance, the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo world-wide, Professor George Obiozor as well as top security chiefs in the zone.
