I want to assure his excellency that as his SSA on security , I will work assiduously on behalf of the good people of Delta state on the instructions of his excellency towards making sure that Delta State is made very secured and safe from the state capital to the Excravos river, to Burutu and Agge rivers, Bomadi/Patani areas, and from the Benin river boundaries with Edo state to Eastern boundaries of both rivers and Bayelsa states.”
Gentlemen of the press the state is disturbed of pirates frequent attacks on commercial transporters and residents among riverside dwellers from Warri to Burutu, to Agge Delta boundaries, From Warri to Escravos, to Warri North Rivers of the state. We are very much concerned about it. It is our warning that such criminal elements should clear off our water ways as the state will no longer pardon their criminal acts and that any one caught will be dealt with as a common criminal. I want to assure the riverside dwellers and travellers in the state that the state government would soon roll out waterways patrol which may finally put to an end of pirates attacks as experienced today.
Another concern of the state is the unabated increase of cultism in our dear state. The act of this miscreants have destroyed night life in our cities and communities. Law abiding citizens are harassed and intimated on daily basis. It makes life uncomfortable in the state, and the state can no longer condone it. We are assuring Deltans that the security apparatus will do more to address this menace. It is our warning that those persons who are into such criminal activities should repent now, because any one caught may be jailed for life. The people’s governor, Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa will soon inaugurate special team of security men to tackle the menace of street cultism and other related vices.”
It is also a fact that our people have faced serious herdsmen attacks over times, I will urge our amiable governor to set up a special tasks force including community vigilantes to forestall deadly herdsmen attacks in our highways and communities as to create save environment for our communities and farmers to go about their normal duties without any molestation. It is our warning that herdsmen who will not do their business peacefully should leave the state without further delay as the state will not longer fold hands to watch heedless and uncouth herdsmen attacks against law abiding citizens of the state.
We are aware that the abuse of use of drugs by the young generation is alarming, expect drastic actions are taken to forestall it, it will end up turning our young youths to nuisance. The authorities saddled with such powers to checkmate drug related crimes should step up more efforts to stop this menace in Delta society before it is too late.”
I also want to assure the good people of Delta State that the highlighted societal issues such as herdsmen attacks, drug abuse,cultism and sea pirate amongst the youths will be brought to the barest minimum if not outrightly eradicated from the facets, our traditional Delta state society.
I equally want to assure all Deltans that I will join hands with all the security agencies and other government organs to make sure that all multinational companies/organisation that has fled Delta State to relocate back to a more secure and peaceful Delta State,so that our teeming youths will be gainfully engaged and taken off the streets.
But I want to make it known that governance is a collective agenda, it is not a sole responsibility of our dear governor or security agents alone but it is a collective responsibility. So to arrive at a most prosperous,secure and peaceful Delta State all hands must be on deck.
Therefore , I advice all Deltans to join hands with his Excellency in the full realization of his SMART AGENDA project in our melancholy to retain the pinnacle of asterism to other states and Nigerians, the statement adds.
