Ubah donates 6000 streetlights, security cameras, others to boost security in Anambra


By Okechukwu Onuegbu

The Senator representing Anambra South district, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, Tuesday, donated a total of 6000 Streetlights with Surveillance Cameras, 1000 walkie talkies, trained personnel, among others to boost the security of lives and properties in Anambra State.

Ubah, who handed over the security gadgets to Governor Chukwuma Soludo at FC Ifeanyi Ubah International Stadium, Nnewi/Ozubulu during the Anambra South Security Surveillance and Information Technology Summit, explained that it was part of his "Secure Anambra South Project."

According to him, it was 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.

"I must express my sincere gratitude to Sen. Ifeanyichukwu Ubah for coming up with this specific idea to secure Anambra South. The seven local governments in Anambra South, including Ogbaru, were under siege when I took over office.

"Because of the gun violence and homicides that were occurring at the time, we couldn't conduct campaigns in these areas adequately. We made the decision to take on these crooks and retake our state. Everyone's job is to protect lives and property. Men, women, and children all have a part to play. Speak up if you see something.

"We reactivated the Anambra State Security Trust Fund law and requested donations from Ndị Anambra. Since we shall be developing Anambra State together, many people responded to our invitation by providing money, vehicles, technology, and other items," he noted.

Also speaking at the occasion, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, AVM Ben Chiobi, informed the governor that the well-trained staff members were prepared to work and that more than 1000 walkie-talkies with communication components have been bought.
