Anambra guber: PRP’ll address income inequality -Mbah
From David Onwuchekwa, Nnewi
The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) candidate for the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State, Dr Stephen Obiora Mbah has warned against the danger in deploying soldiers to handle security issues that would have been handled by the police and other security agencies.
Dr Mbah was reacting to the recent Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) face off with the army in Awka on his arrival from Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters, Abuja to submit his Form EC 4B (ii) in full preparation for the governorship contest.
He said the army could only wade into security matters where the police could not contain the situation. He described as unfortunate the number of casualties recorded as the aftermath of the IPOB and military clash.
He noted that it was against the democratic norms and ethics to freely use the army on the civilian population even in a war situation. He called for the withdrawal of the military exercise code named Operation Python Dance II from the South East.
Dr Mbah reiterated the preparedness of PRP to take over the reign of government in Anambra State.
He noted that the Anambra people would have done justice to their electoral mandate, if given to a virgin politician that had sincerity of purpose under a political platform that knew no corruption with a blend of capitalist and socialist ideologies.
