Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has restated the commitment of his administration to the strict enforcement of the anti-open grazing law already passed by the State House of Assembly.

Governor Ikpeazu who was addressing a delegation of the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence, Dr Samuel Kalu Uche at Government House, Umuahia said that the move was in response to the excesses of the criminal herdsmen terrorising our people.

The governor further assured that plans were underway to flush the criminal herdsmen from our forests.

The governor, who restated the commitment of his administration to the security of lives and properties of Abians, described as worrisome the absence of any South Easterner in the security architecture of the country.

He said it meant that while the South East region is a direct victim of the activities of criminal herdsmen and other sundry security challenges, nobody from the region is part of the highest decision-making body when it comes to security.

He stressed the need for Igbo youths to trade with caution in the prevailing security situations, adding that with resilience, dedication and the age-long Igbo apprenticeship mentorship system, Ndigbo will definitely dominate the socio-economic landscape of Nigeria.

Earlier in his speech, the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence, Dr Samuel Kalu Uche said that he is an advocate of a Nigeria with true federalism devoid of marginalisation of any section or region.
