ENUGU – Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has reiterated his administration’s commitment to eliminating all forms of crime and insecurity in the state.
He stated this on Thursday in Enugu during the swearing-in ceremony of the 2019 Batch ‘B’ Stream II corps members deployed to the state.
The governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Professor Simon Ortuanya, said that the state remained safe in spite of recent security challenges.
Ugwuanyi assured the corps members of their safety in any part of the state they would be deployed for their primary assignment.
He said: “I want to assure you of the determination of this administration in combating crime and eliminating insecurity in any guise in the state.
“The ongoing recruitment of 1700 forest guards to complement the efforts of law enforcement agents is a testimony to our resolve in keeping the state safe.
“You are, therefore, safe in any part of the state you may be posted for your primary assignment after the orientation course,” he said.
The governor said that he had unwavering faith in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme, adding that the state government would continue to provide the enabling environment for it to thrive.
He said: “The NYSC call-up is a clarion call to selfless service and personal sacrifice.
“We will continue to give the welfare of corps members posted to the state priority attention. This we believe will motivate them to discharge their mandates successfully,” he said.
