Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah, has inaugurated the Enugu State Security Trust Fund, saying it is in line with his administration’s campaign promises and efforts to build on the successes achieved in the security of lives and property in the state.

The 11-member Board of Trustees of the fund, chaired by the Group Managing Director (GMD) of Afrinvest Trustees Limited, Ike Chioke, has Chinedu Anih as executive secretary.

The governor put the state’s projected security expenditure for 2024 at N20bn, saying the government was counting on private sector support in that regard.

He said, “The Security Trust Fund is in line with what we expressed in our manifesto when we were seeking the mandate of our people to serve them.

“We promised them that Enugu will be one of the top three states in terms of GDP, and of course we said it was going to happen from private sector investment; and attracting private sector investment requires that you have the enabling environment.

“This was why we immediately made certain consequential pronouncements and took emphatic steps in addressing our insecurity challenges. We set up the Distress Response Squad.
