Peter Obi faults FG for security breakdown in Anambra

The Former governor of Anambra State, “Peter Obi” reportedly said to have blamed the Federal Government for security breach in Anambra.

The Former Governor expresses his dissatisfaction at a statement recently made by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, “Abubakar Malami”, ahead of the Gubernatoral elections in the state.

The Attorney General of the Federation had stated that; the raise of violence in the state might ignites the Federal Government, to declare a State of Emergency, to ensure that the election holds on the scheduled date.

However, Malami’s statement was strongly criticised by the Anambra State government which made them point out the fact that; despite the increase of violence witnessed in some northern parts of the countries, elections were still held there without any declaration of State of Emergency.

While Speaking on the issue in an interview on The Morning Show, an Arise TV programme on Monday, Peter Obi Opined that; the Federal Government shouldn’t be talking about State of Emergency.

Putting its in his words;

“People in government, when they make statements, should always, first of all, evaluate and think about the implications of their statement to the overall wellbeing of the country.
“People don’t know that the greatest contributors to GDP growth are intangible assets, which is security, law and order, and even the behaviour and statement of the leaders.

“The statement of leaders can actually hurt the place. So leaders must always ensure that their words have always gone through scrutiny.

“That statement from the attorney general shouldn’t be. More so, he’s the attorney general of the federation, not of the federal government or APC.
“The Federal Government should not talk about a state of emergency. Failure of security in Anambra state is their failure because they are in charge of security. Unless they are saying, they’re going to declare a state of emergency on the country.”
