APGA warns FG against declaring state of emergency in Anambra -GCFRNG
The Great Alliance of All Progressives, APGA, has rejected the Federal Government’s proposal to declare a state of emergency in the state of Anambra.
The party, in a statement from its National Advertising secretary Tex Okechukwu on Wednesday night in Abuja, warned the government not to play with the idea of declaring a state of emergency in the state.
APGA, therefore, urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to succumb to the devious machinations of a desperate few, but to look inward and find a solution to the crisis in the state.
Okechukwu described the threat as unjustified as Anambra state has been classified for more than 7 years as the most peaceful state in Nigeria.
He questioned the logic behind the idea of planning to declare a state of emergency in Anambra state with less than a month to go before the gubernatorial election when he had yet to do the same in worse states like Borno, Yobe, Kaduna, Niger and Nasarawa. .
The party advised the Federal Government to look inward and expose the problems that are brewing in the state, rather than make a decision that would do more harm than good to our democracy.
APGA called on all well-intentioned people in Anambra state to stand up and condemn the plan as it would truncate all milestones recorded by the current APGA-led government in the state.
“We reasoned that some people are afraid to stand up to the electorate in Anambra state and are devising a face-saving method to trample on the will of the people,” the party reasoned.
He urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to succumb to the devious machinations of a desperate few, but to consider more the far-reaching benefits of maintaining peace and progress that had existed in Anambra State before the current insecurity began.
