Insecurity: Anam PG tasks Nigerians on patriotism
… Urges govts to compensate family of killed colleague
PRESIDENT General (PG) of Oroma-Etiti Anam Town Union in Anambra West Local Government Area, Anambra State, Christopher Emeka has said that patriotism and brotherly understanding among Nigerians, were vital panacea for insecurity of life and property bedeviling the country today.
Emeka, who stated this in a chat with the press at his Oroma-Etiti Anam country home, blamed the security challenges in the nation on lack of love among the citizens and ethnic royalty taking prominence over patriotism and the essence of what unites the different Nigerian ethnic groups as one nation.
The PG said, “we Nigerians, should try to create one love and practice the same because when we are biting about insecurity in our environment and country at large, we are seeing ourselves as enemies. If we love ourselves, and maintain the same from the bottoms of our hearts, the security challenges will not be an issue”.
He stressed, “we need to understand where our problems started and how we can tackle them. We don’t have love of ourselves and our nation – that is where the problems started, tribalism, segregation where people are saying, ‘I migrated from this place; I migrated from the other place; therefore, I must protect its interest’.
“Therefore, I advocate that Nigerians should understand themselves by importing and imbibing love, trying to understand that a person from Anambra State is a brother to a person from Kaduna State; with this, insecurity of life and property as well as other challenges facing our nation will be a thing of the past.”
The community leader and lawyer recalled the recent kidnapping and its attendant murder of one of his colleagues in community leadership and legal practice, the PG of Omor in Ayamelum LGA, Anambra State, Francis Onwoachu, whom he described as a mentor and colossus among the legal luminaries in the state and beyond.
He disclosed that the demise of Onwuachu at this time his wealth of experience is needed most by his Omor community and the legal luminaries in the state threw the legal practitioners into great mourning.
He therefore, appealed to Anambra State and the federal governments to compensate the Onwuachu family to ameliorate the effect of the death of their son and father on them, pointing out that the great expectations the family and the lawyers in the state and beyond had of the late Onwuachu had been cut off.
In a happy note, the Anam PG congratulated the traditional ruler of Oroma-Etiti Anam, Eze Nwaozekwe Okeke, on his 45th anniversary as the traditional ruler of the community, describing the monarch as a father indeed and leader, who carries everyone along and prayed to God to continue to bless him with good health and longevity.
