Insecurity: Gov. Uzodimma Flags Off “Exercise Golden Dawn” In Imo


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) –  Gov. Hope Uzodimma of Imo has flagged off the “Exercise Golden Dawn”, an initiative of the Nigerian Armed Forces, to stem the tide of insecurity in the state.

The governor performed the flag-off at the 34 Artillery Brigade Forward Operation Base in Orlu Local Government Area of the state on Wednesday.

Speaking at the event, Uzodimma said that the exercise which would be carried out for three months would help restore sanity in the state ahead of the yuletide.

He commended security agencies in the state for their vision in creating the Centre to address the peculiar nature of the security situation in the South-East zone and Imo in particular.

He thanked the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Farouk Yahaya, and all officers and soldiers of the 34 Artillery Brigade, Obinze, near Owerri  for their sacrifices in ensuring a peaceful Imo.

He urged security agencies to continue consolidating the gains so far made in curbing the activities of criminals and pledged his support for the agencies.

According to him, the exercise would create an enabling environment for people to go about their lawful businesses without fear of molestation.

“This is a special period and season in the lives of  the people of the South-East who are predominantly Christians coming back for the celebration of Christmas which usually lasts from October to December.

“This exercise will go a long way in improving the security situation in our geo-political zone, giving our people a  sense of security and encouraging our brothers and sisters who are resident abroad to come home without fear,” he said.
