Gubernatorial Candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Mr. Frank Nweke Jnr has called for stiff policies and monitoring of activities as well as occupants of Herdsmen Settlements over increasing insecurity in Enugu State.
Mr. Frank Nweke in a bid to provide possible solutions in curbing the factors contributing to the increasing rate of killings, and kidnapping; which are largely linked to the ungoverned spaces in Enugu state stated that if he is elected Governor of the state in 2023, he will ensure that herdsmen settlements will stop posing threat to other residents.
The gubernatorial hopeful made the statement while engaging on a Twitter Space on Sunday night, November 27th, 2022.
In his words, “I will not allow the settlement of Fulani herdsmen anywhere in our State until it is clear that they, under the guise of herding, no longer pose a threat to lives, farmlands, and properties. Banditry and terrorism will not be tolerated in any way.”
“As much as peace and co-existence are preferred, we cannot keep losing the lives of our people to bandits posing as businessmen”.
“We need a governor that will take radical actions, not one that will skirt around the issues out of weakness or personal interests or in allegiance” he concluded.
