Worried by the security challenges in the eastern region, Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah, has partnered with the military to nip insecurity in the bud.


Mbah who received the Chief of Defence Staff, General Leo Irabor, on Tuesday at the Enugu State Government House described insecurity as a big elephant in the room, reiterating his administration’s commitment to addressing the issue.


He identified insecurity as the major obstacle to his administration’s agenda to raise the state’s economy from $4.4 billion to $30 billion.


“We identified the elephant in the room, being insecurity, and its impact, both psychologically, economically, and socially on our people,” the governor stated.
