She acknowledged the rising insecurity across the state and several parts of Nigeria, describing the trends as worrisome which must be prioritized by any purposeful government.
“Security, for me, will be a top priority. If given the opportunity, our administration shall implement fully, the government’s responsibility to protect life, property, economy, institutions, community and environment in Anambra state; and to make Anambra once again, fiscally secure and solvent.
“Part of my compact with Ndi Anambra is to restore the state to #BetterLife, greatness and glory by orchestrating an industrial revolution building on existing facilities and competencies in the Onitsha-Nnewi-Awka (ONA) Industrial Axis, and ensuring they are provided with the enabling environment to thrive.”
