Woman leader, Geo-Ibeabuchi decries killing of innocent Nigerians, destruction of police stations
Addressing the 10th Biennial Conference of the women’s guild and girls’ guild at St. Paul’s Church, IUIA Umutowe, Olokoro West Archdeaconry, Umuahia South Local Council of Abia State, with the theme, “Follow Me: I Will Make You,” Geo-Ibeabuchi called on Federal Government to take urgent actions to protect the people from criminals and also to give assent to the formation of state police as measures to track down criminal elements and tackle insecurity in the country.
Reminding the country’s leadership that the next generation is at risk, the woman leader said, “Our school children are exposed to kidnapping, fear of going to school and even living in the hostel is everywhere because no one knows the next school or campus on the list of the kidnappers. Truly, there is real existential risk in this land.”
She frowned at the gender-based violence such as rape, sexual assault and unemployment rate.
While commending the governors of the Southern states in their resolve to ban open grazing within the region, she urged the state governors and leaders of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) to adopt dialogue, as an evolving strategy in dealing with the national wide strike matter at hand for the good of the common man.
The Archbishop of Aba Ecclesiastical Province of the Anglican Communion, The Most Rev’d (Dr.) Isaac Nwaobia, who was represented by a legal practitioner, Chukwudi Chibuzo, said the way out of self-inflicted problems of Nigeria is for the church to shun voter/political apathy and vote out bad governance with their voter cards, come year 2023.
