Security top on our agenda in Abia State…Gov T.A. Orji

Abia State Governor Chief Theodore Orji says he has no regrets in terms of the funds he is investing in maintaining security in the State. In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Ugochukwu Emezue, Governor Orji declared that no price paid in ensuring that peace prevails in the state is too much. According to the Governor, without security, development cannot take place, hence his decision to make security top on his agenda.
Going down memory lane, Governor T. A. Orji recalled that during the kidnapping era in the State, local and foreign contractors building roads and some other projects abandoned their sites as kidnappers were taking them hostage. Governor Orji declared that the peace in the State will be sustained at all cost.
On the forthcoming launch of the Security Trust Fund, the Governor stated that the bill was sent to the house in 2007 and was also passed into law that same year.
Chief Orji hinted that the fund is one of the sources through which his government is funding the vehicles, communication gadgets and motor bikes given to security agencies.
For Chief Orji, the launch of the Abia Security Fund will afford patriotic Abians the opportunity to partner with government in ensuring that peace and security continue to reign in the State.
While urging Security Agencies to maintain the tempo with which they are carrying out their assignments, the Governor called on Abians to give information to these agencies. This, according to him will provide the needed intelligence they require to do their work effectively.
He used the opportunity to reassure non-indigenes in the State of their security always.
