South East Governors’ Forum led by Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State on Thursday congratulated the governor- elect of Anambra State, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo, for his victory in the just-concluded governorship election.

Umahi made this known through a statement signed and forwarded to DAILY POST on Thursday.

The statement reads in part: “May I, on behalf of South-East Governors Congratulate Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo on his victory in the just-concluded Anambra governorship election.

“I Congratulate all other candidates that participated in the election for their efforts and peaceful conduct during and after the election. I believe that God rules in the affairs of men.

“I Urge Prof. Soludo to please, extend healing and loving hands to all the candidates in the election so that together, you will continue to contribute to the progress of the state from where His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano would stop. After every election, party politics should be left to political parties while good governance takes the centre stage for the good of the people.

“May I also congratulate one of us, Governor Willie Obiano for a successful governorship election in Anambra state. God has ordained you to finish strong and well.

“Testimonies available on the conduct of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) during the election speak greatly of their excellent job. Let me therefore, congratulate the commission for both a great job and their courage in conducting the election.

“We are grateful to all security chiefs and their men for their excellent job in the conduct of the election. From available accounts, they all played their roles excellently within their rules of engagement. This has unarguable boosted the public confidence in our security system.

“Our gratitude goes to all our religious leaders, our political leaders, our traditional fathers, many stakeholders of South East, and Mr. Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer for their efforts in ensuring that the sit-at-home order and threats against holding the election were aborted. I believe that with the same spirit, we will work together for a political solution in handling our present situation in South East.

“We thank Mr. President, H.E. Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR so much for his efforts and neutrality in the success of the Anambra election. Mr. President, this is just you and you have once again demonstrated that you are a true democrat with a great commitment to bequeath to the nation an impeccable electoral process. Thank you for the security agencies, INEC officials, and the safety of our people during and after the election.

“Mr. President, please, as a follow-up to your presidential delegation to South-East this year on the solution to the situation of South-East, may we inform you that we South-East leaders have been working so hard for an amicable solution.

“All leaders of South-East strongly wish to present to Mr. President, some suggestions for a possible political solution over our present situation. After Our next meeting, we shall be writing to request for an appointment with Mr. President on this matter. We thank you Mr. President for your kind disposition to listen to our leaders for a possible amicable resolution of all contending issues in South-East.

“Finally, we thank God almighty for saving the lives of our people and all those involved in the election. The same God will do more for our people and Nigeria” the statement noted.

Muslims under the umbrella of Muslim Ummah of South-West Nigeria (MUSWEN) have advised Nigerians to supply credible information to security agencies in order to stem the tide of kidnapping, armed robbery and other criminal activities in the country.

A member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of MUSWEN, Alhaji Kunle Sanni, issued the advice while speaking with journalists during the 6th General Assembly of the organisation.

The event themed “Insecurity in Nigeria: Effects on Human Psyche” held at the University of Ibadan on Sunday had MUSWEN President, Alhaji Rasaki Oladejo; MUSWEN Executive Secretary, Professor Muslih Yahya; and prominent Islamic scholars and associations across the region in attendance.

Sanni, while speaking on the security situation across the country, noted that Nigerians should not wait for security agents before they secure themselves.

He explained that it is not possible for security agents to be everywhere, hence Nigerians should volunteer information that could help them arrest the criminals.

Sanni, who added that criminals live among the people, said that the best way for people to protect themselves is to report suspicious movements to the security agencies.

He said, “Chief of Army Staff, Inspector General of Police and all the service chiefs cannot be everywhere and these criminals live among us, so we are concerned about the security situation in the country, we should give intelligence report to the security agencies.

“I am not suggesting that Nigerian should carry guns to defend themselves, if we are saying that we should carry guns to defend ourselves, we are escalating the tentacles of violence.

“So, I will not subscribe to the call that everyone should carry guns.

“Every Nigerian should see himself as part of those who want to see the end of the ugly insurrection.

“Therefore, they should be involved to volunteer necessary information to the security agencies to assist in combating insecurity”.

A former Commissioner of Police, Dr. Olayinka Balogun, in his lecture entitled “Prevalence of Insecurity in Nigeria and its effect on human conduct” attributed weak government, politics of hatred, corruption, unemployment and breakdown of traditional institutions as major factors causing insecurity in the country.

He then recommended that government and stakeholders should ensure the provision of jobs for the unemployed, promote equity, justice and protect the rights of minorities in order to address growing incidents of kidnappings, armed robberies and other criminal activities in the country.

“Insecurity can be brought to a minimal level if the following essential political, economic and social policies and programs are introduced and sustained in a society.

“Development and consolidation of democratic culture, strong and capable public institutions, a strong and just economic space including guaranteed job and food security,” he said.
