Why is the Trump administration expanding its travel ban?

Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, believes the South East has relatively recorded the lowest incidence of security challenges compared to other regions in the country.

He stated this on Monday when he highlighted the steps being taken by governors in the region to ensure the security of the lives and properties of people in the South East.

Umahi, who is also the Chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum, spoke during his appearance on Channels Television’s breakfast programme – Sunrise Daily.

“I tell you that relatively in the whole country, South East is still better secured than any other region, and I give kudos to our governors who work day and night to ensure that this happens,” he said.

The governor decried the general security situation in the country, including the challenges of Boko Haram insurgency, banditry, kidnapping, and cultism among others.

He, therefore, proposed state police as the way forward to tackle the problems of security in the nation.

Governor Umahi stressed that leaders in the country must act fast to address the security challenges the nation was grappling with.

He also asked them, especially the lawmakers in the Senate and House of Representatives chambers of the National Assembly and other legislative houses to put the interest of the people ahead of personal interests.

The governor said, “We as a nation cannot continue to go like this, we cannot fold our hands and continue to see the lives of our people being wasted.

“This is very important; state police should be advocated for and what our leaders should know is that you don’t make a law to suit you.”
