Adeoye extolled an illustrious son of the community, Ken Chukwurah, a retired Director at the Department of and State Service (DSS), who he said provided intelligence that saved hundreds of souls years ago when both of them worked together to fight Boko Haram insurgency in Maiduguri, Borno State capital.

Responding, Obi Nwosu commended Adeoye for the visit and assured him of maximum support at all time to succeed and appealed to the police to remove incessant barricades on tarred roads in Awka, which he said could hamper movement in case of emergencies.

Represented by the town’s Traditional Prime Minister, Benjamin Okoye, the monarch further observed that the youth wing election would be held to produce youth leaders with integrity and credible antecedents that will assist the police in the task of protection of lives and property.

Contributing, a community leader, Chief Jonathan Nzekwe, extolled the Commissioner for his successes in about two months in office, attributing it to his knowledge of the terrain in the state on account of his various postings to Fegge Onitsha, Oba, Ojoto, Nnewi, Awka, among others.

He lamented that insecurity adversely affects development in any community, and said with improved security network and prevalence of peace across communities, investors would come into the state to help the Governor achieve his investment plans for the state.

According to him, the parley was timely as it witnessed the presence of not just the cabinet members, but also the Caretaker Committee of the Youth Wing of Awka Development Union Nigeria (ADUN) led by James Uzoh.
