EDITORIAL: Making Rivers State Safe

The safety of lives and properties are essential in every society. And it is the statutory responsibility of government to maintain law and order in her domain. Hence, every government owes its citizenry a duty to ensure that they are safe and protected.

Governor Nyesom Ezewno Wike of Rivers State is trying his best to ensure the security of lives and properties in the state, since May 29,2015.

When the governor took over the mantle of leadership in the state, the first thing he did was purchase of vehicles to the police and other security agencies to enhance their job performance.

However, despite the governor’s efforts to combat crimes in the state, there are people who are making secret moves to ensure that Wike did not win the battle.

Ogba/Ndoni/Egbema, Ahoada-East, Ahoada-West, Abua/Odual, Asari-Toru, Emohua LGAs and others have become security threats to the state. No fever than ten (10) persons were brutally murdered at Ula-Upata and Edeoha communities in the Ahoada-East local government area. Andoni, Emohua and Asari-Toru have been a flashpoint of cultists’ activities. Lives and properties are no longer safe in those areas.

And businesses and other social activities are at their lowest ebb, as a result of this, residents have fled their communities to areas where they can live in safety and to have rest of mind.

May we at this junction call on the security agencies and relevant authorities to bring all their expertise knowledge and wealth of experience to bear in charge of their professional duties in order to maintain law and order in the state. ###
