Youth Wing of Christian Association of Nigeria, (YOWICAN), has condemned the attack at Police Headquarters and Correctional Centre in Owerri on Easter Monday where many prisoners and cell inmates were set free by gunmen whose identities are yet be ascertained.
Regretting the attack, National Chairman, Youth Wing of Christian Association of Nigeria, Hon Belusochukwu Michael Enwere , in a chat on Saturday, called for proactive security in the South East, particularly in Imo State.
YOWICAN told federal and states governments to ensure that security apparatuses in the country especially in the South East are well equipped, well paid to enable them to curtail insecurity.
Belusochukwu advised government to urgently address issues that lead to insecurity by providing employment, create economic opportunities, engage youths and women on meaningful skills training such as welding, barbing, sewing, ICT and empower them accordingly, including awarding scholarships in both home and overseas to youths and students, provide infrastructure to all existing communities to spur people to productivity, give loan or grants to devoted farmers to encourage production of sufficient food, as well as provide quality and affordable education.
YOWICAN regretted that Fulani herders are terrorizing peaceful farmers in their farms and at home hence rising insecurity, food insufficiency, hunger and suffering, calling on government to stop the terror of Fulani herders by encouraging them to rear their herds in secluded environments in order to reduce insecurity and hunger.
Lauding Governor Hope Uzodimma for achieving great feat on quality road construction and rehabilitation in the state, Belusochukwu encouraged the governor to continue to solidify good governance to recover the state so that citizens will share in the administration’s prosperity and goodies for peace, comfort and security to reign supremely, saying “Imo State is a walking progress and must prevail”. We thank His Excellency for the passion he has for good governance and youth empowerment”.
However, the association urged citizens and other residents of the state to throw their weights to the Governor and his apostles to enable them achieve success for the state.
