"In immediate fulfillment of his promise to make security of lives and property the priority of his Government in 2013 as contained in his New Year broadcast, Gov. Obi yesterday presented 3 armoured  and 50 patrol  vehicles to the Police at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, making it over 350 he has so far presented to security organizations in the State.

During the presentation, Obi said that other security agencies would receive theirs and assured the Police of the continued support from Anambra State.  He says: “May I reassure the Inspector General of Police and the entire Police that Anambra State will continue to work with them for the security of the State and the country at large. We enjoin all Nigerians to do same.” Explaining the reason for the gesture, Obi said it was out of his belief that the State needed security to sustain her achievements and record even more, which will not be possible in the atmosphere of insecurity.

Earlier, the Inspector General of Police,   Muhammed   Abubakar, who said he was in the State to appraise security situation, received the keys to the vehicles from the Governor Obi. He thanked him for his commitment to security saying that each time the Governor   visited him in Abuja, it must be on how to improve the security of his people. He said he was also happy on coming to Anambra because the State had remained an example of how other states ought to support security agencies for the good of the country. He also commended Obi for his contributions to the re-positioning of the police through his membership of the Police Funding Committee."                                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Isaac Umunna, •Publisher, NEWS EXPRESS
