EBUBEAGU: OHANAEZE NDIGBO COMMENDS SOUTH EAST GOVERNORS, CAUTIONS AGAINST RECRUITING WRONG INTAKES
The launching of South East Regional Security Outfit , EBUBEAGU, launched yesterday Sunday April 11, 2021 by the governors of South East Nigeria, is a right step in right direction and the Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide commends the initiative.
With the EBUBEAGU coming as a legitimate initiative of governments, it can now begin to be uhuru for the South East as there will be a down-to-the-art and quicker security measure to tame terrorism, banditry, kidnapping and other criminal activities including cultism in the potentially technology giant region.
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide will, however, bring to the attention of the governors that, while they have done the right thing in forming the regional security network, it is important to liaise with the security architectures of the Federal Government of Nigeria, under the resilient Administration of President Muhammadu Buhari that there may be peace, security and development in the region.
They should also take to cognizance the need to go extra mile in the recruitment system into the EBUBEAGU to be sure that the very miscreants and criminals they set up the initiative to curb will not get their way into the system thereby using it to compromise the security architecture of the South East region.
Wishing the governors and all the people of the South East the best.
