HON Tom Tom ALIEZI DECLARES EMOHUA SAFE FOR INVESTMENT.
— Urges Owners of abandoned and undeveloped properties to eschew fear of the old and return to site.
Emohua Local Government Chairman, High Chief Tom Aliezi has declared that the area is now safe for economic activities, as peace and security has returned to the area.
He regretted that the area has over the years suffered from the activities of kidnappers, armed robbers and cultists who scared investors from coming to develop the area, due to fear of being attacked by these hoodlums.
He stated that the war against insecurity in the area has so far recorded a huge success, as residents now live in peace in their respective communities.
He lauded the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for his huge investment in the security architecture of the state which has yielded positive results across the state, with Emohua Local Government Area as a major beneficiary of the services of Operation Sting, most especially on the formerly-impassable East-West Road.
Speaking to journalists at the council secretariat on Thursday, the council chairman said that commercial activities are gradually making a return to the area because of the peace that is currently enjoyed in the area.
He said that most of the notorious criminals terrorising the area over the years have been apprehended, while others were brought down in gun battle with security agencies, but admitted that the security agencies are still after the very few who haven’t been apprehended, while some have relocated from the area as it is no longer safe for their criminal activities.
Hon Tom commended the different community internal security formations who have been very supportive to the government security forces in ensuring that insecurity is brought to a standstill in the area.
He promised not to relent in providing Logistics Support to both the Government Security Agencies and Community Volunteer Vigilante Groups to sustain the peace and security that is currently enjoyed in the area.
He further urged owners of abandoned properties who initially fled the area for fear of safety, to return to site and develop their properties in order to activate full commercial and industrial activities in the area.
He said that Emohua Town which is the headquarters of the local government area shares common boundary with Choba Community which hosts the University of Portharcourt and as such is supposed to have linked up with Portharcourt in terms of development, but for the insecurity that has over the years befallen the area.
He stated that the present administration of Governor Nyesom Wike has brought change in the area by restoring peace and security in the area.
He further called on the youths to promote peace in the area in order to attract development to the area, which he said will create employment and activate full commercial activities in the area .
