The Enugu State Chapter of Accord Party has expressed their displeasure over the escalating insecurity in South-East geopolitical zone and it’s poor handling by the state governors
The party described the alarming state of insecurity in the zone as disquieting, stating that if necessary and urgent measures are not taking to quell the looming anarchy, the South-East region that has always been regarded as the most peaceful region in the country will no doubt become the most hostile and deadly zone to inhabit.
The Accord Party also states that the emergence of Eastern Security Network, (ESN) was as a result of the lacuna created by the five states governors Laodicean and lackadaisical approach in restructuring the security architecture of the region.
“while some governors are paying deaf ear to this challenging and hectic situation, others are being reluctant and indifference in arresting the situation before it escalates, the party said”
Furthermore, this current trend in our security architecture has further proved that all the political parties and their governors in charge of this current leadership dispensation in the five states of the South-East region have failed and lost out of ideas and capacity to Govern the region and therefore should honorably resign from their offices to give way to install credible and People oriented leaders that will be able to restore the glory of the zone in the country’s socio-economic and political ecosystem.
“In a saner society where leaders still lead with integrity and self respect, the governors should have resigned voluntarily owing to their abysmal and colossal failure that has led to the total collapse of security in the region.”
The Accord Party therefore beacon on the good people of the zone to rally round our great party as the alternative political platform to redeem, reclaim, reposition and repair the already deteriorated system of governance In the zone.
Finally, the entire South-East region is currently sitting on a keg of gunpowder and if necessary actions are not taking in addressing the yearnings of the people especially as it regards security, it’s explosion will be such that no one can contend with.
