FG Threatens To Declare State Of Emergency In Anambra

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Federal Government has threatened to  declare  ‘state-of-emergency’ in Anambra State due to the lingering insecurity situation in the state.

Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, made this known after the Federal Executive Council, FEC meeting in Abuja on Wednesday.

He stated that the Federal Government is committed to ensure a hitch-free election in the state.

Malami said: “When our national security is attacked, and the sanctity of our constitutionally guaranteed democracy is threatened, no possibility is ruled out.

“As a government, we have a responsibility to ensure the sustenance of our democratic order. As a government, we have a responsibility to provide security to life and properties.

“So, what I’m saying in essence, no possibility is out ruled by government in terms of ensuring the sanctity of our democratic order, in terms of ensuring that our elections in Anambra hold.

“And you cannot rule out the possibility of declaration of state of emergency where it is established, in essence, that there is a failure on the part of the state government to ensure the sanctity of security of lives, properties and democratic order.”
