Omo-Agege Sues For Peace, Urges Anti-Cult Group To Be Security Cautious
By Ajuwa Victor
Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate and gubernatorial candidate of All people Progressives Congress in Delta, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has charged members of Delta State Anti-Cult group to be vigilant before, during and after the Governorship Election.
He gave this charge when he met for the first time with the members of the Anti-Cult group in Asaba, the state capital.
According to him, “the issue of security is everybody’s business, especially politicians. Frankly speaking, the Police can not do it alone”, all over the world crime fighting is a collective one hence the need for inter agency cooperation and collaboration.”
He noted that no country in the world had zero crime rate even the developed ones, noting that it can only be brought down astronomically particularly with the collaboration of stakeholders such as Anti-Cult Volunteer Corps, vigilante and other sister security agencies playing their roles effectively.
While commending the Anti-Cult Volunteer Corps for its commitment to stamp out cultism and other social vices from communities, the Senate Deputy President advised the Patrons not to condone any bad egg among its fold who would want to use the corps as a cover to engage in criminality especially during the elections.
“I will work with you, we will work together to change the face of Delta. I enjoin every men of the Anti-Cult to be professional in the discharge of your duties and desist from acts against the tenets of formation of AVC. As crime fighters, you must smoke out moles from within who sell out intelligence to their criminal cohorts. We should not allow saboteurs to be in our midst”, he said.
The Deputy President urged the Anti-Cult Volunteer Corps to carry out their duties within the ambit of the law and should be exemplary in the conduct especially during the elections.
He stressed the need for adequate security so that companies that have left the state will return. “Government does not create jobs but we will create the enabling environment for peace and security so investors can come in and create jobs for our people.”
Omo-Agege said the challenges facing the state affected everybody irrespective of ethnic or political affiliation, saying he will be fair, just and equitable in the management of the state resources, if elected.
The Delta Central lawmaker stated that under him as governor, no section or part of the state would be neglected or marginalized on account of ethnicity, senatorial district or religious affiliation.
Responding, the President in Charge of the Anti-Cult Unit Delta State Chapter, Uche Nwahandi Eboma commended the Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate for his outright contribution to peace and development of the state and country at large.
He promised to carry out his duty within the ambit of the law and work with all zeal along side his men during the Governorship elections.
