Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, (HURIWA) on Wednesday called on the Enugu State Governor not to spare resources and manpower to ensure that political saboteurs do not flood Enugu with foreign criminal elements to foment trouble, cause insecurity and attempt to rubbish the heritage of sustainable peace in the state.
HURIWA said as the election nears, those political jobbers who aren’t happy with how peaceful the state has been may recruit undesirable elements to cause organised chaos and to diminish the formidable legacies the Enugu State Government has achieved.
HURIWA’s Onwubiko said, “As testified by credible leaders of diverse groups as well as heads of security agencies in Enugu and the South-East geopolitical zone, Gov Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has promoted peaceful governance as a prerequisite for aggressive economic development agenda of the state in the last eight years.
“On no account, therefore, should the heads of security agencies in Enugu sleep on their guards and let saboteurs and political opportunists destroy these visible achievements of Enugu State which have happened by prudent management of resources, openness, transparency and accountability in the last eight years. This high-level vigilance is particularly important as the February 25 and March 11 general elections draw nearer.
