Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo, a frontline contender for the office of the governor in the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra state, has assured Anambra families of their safety if elected governor.
Nwankpo, who is seeking the office of the governor on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance said his administration would be ruthless with criminal elements in the state.
The governorship hopeful whose standpoints were made known in a press statement signed and released to journalists in Awka at the weekend by his Director-General on media and publicity Dr. Chuma Harris Odili, said he would deploy legal means to stop all criminal activities in the state.
Nwankpo said, “I will sit with the law enforcement agencies to manage security on a daily basis. People should know that there is government and police in the state.
“It will no longer be business as usual. The Police are expected to work with the state government to ensure that the state is free of criminal elements.
“As the governor of the State, my primary responsibility is to the Anambra people. I will make the presence of the Police felt across the state, and provide them with rapid response equipment.
“I will work with the security architecture already established by Governor Willie Obiano, and improve on it. I will do my best to ensure the state is crime-free and there will be changes in the state.
“My government will provide enough Stationary vehicles in strategic positions awaiting distress calls from citizens.”
