Insecurity: I’ll ‘walk the streets of Abakaliki without security’, says Umahi

Governor David Umahi has promised to walk through the streets of Abakiliki, the state capital, without his security details to inspect inspect development projects, noting that he doesn’t fear the tension in the state and across the Southeast.

He spoke yesterday in Abakaliki during the one-week prayer and fasting organised by the government for God’s intervention in the security situation in the state, Southeast and the country.

The governor said although he had been advised to suspend projects’ inspection due to the prevailing insecurity, he would continue inspecting the projects.

“God has not given us the spirit of fear and I ask: who is there to stop me?

“We will walk the streets of Abakaliki without security as I will become ill if I don’t go for projects’ inspection,” he said.

Umahi said God has done wonders in the state through his administration despite some people’s views.

“I believe that an average Ebonyi person is happy with our administration. No one will accuse us of not performing.

“It is only those who want us to share money to the big people that can accuse us, as their eyes are fixed on the state’s funds.

“We have instead, turned the state into a construction site with men, women and youths positively engaged and money circulating appropriately,” he said.

The governor urged the people to shun all forms of envy, bitterness, among other vices and turn to God for the state’s redemption from the prevailing security challenge.

“Evil men have infiltrated our state to kill, maim and kidnap, but God will deliver us.”
