Nnewi industrialist bemoans security challenge in Anambra, S’East
By Ada Nwanagum
An industrialist, Chief Alex Okafor, has bemoaned the security crisis in parts of the south east, especially Anambra state, warning that it could impact negatively on commercial and economic activities in the state.
Okafor made the remarks while reacting to the recent killings in parts of the state when he received in audience, the organising committee for Anambra Achievers Legacy Award.
He said the attacks targeted on security personnel and their formations in the state were worrisome, adding that insecurity in the state may worsen youth unemployment and undermine the drive for investment in the state and the south east region. He then called on security agencies to do everything necessary to arrest the apparent resurgence of criminal activities in the state.
Okafor warned the Anambra electorate against thuggery and religious politics and advised them to “assess the candidates by their individual capabilities,” calling for prayers from all so that a credible person can be enthroned as the next governor of the state.
The members of the committee were led by Rev John Ndubuisi, chairman All Christians Businessmen’s Fellowship, Bishop Michael Chukwudum and Emma Udeagha, Secretary NUJ, Anambra state Council, among others.
