Anambra Government Issues Statement On Recent Pandemonium by harrison12(m): 5:22pm On Oct 11, 2017
Anambra state government denies break down of law and order in the state.
Residents have been advised to go about their normal lawful activities without fear.
Military authorities have also been informed to suspend their medical outreach until proper information is circulated to residents.
The government of Anambra state has dispelled rumours of a break down in law and order in the state as a result of free medical outreach embarked upon by the military in some areas of the state.
This follows reports of a pandemonium in Anambra State which has made parents to hurriedly withdraw their children and wards from schools particularly in the Nnewi and Ozubulu environs.
The statement signed by the Secretary to the State government, Prof Solo Chukwulobelu has urged residents to go about their normal duties as the situation has been put under control.
See the statement issued below:
The attention of the State Government has been drawn to an on going medical outreach being undertaken by the Army in Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area.
The State has been made to understand that the exercise is part of Army social responsibility to members of the public.
However, strong apprehension among the populace has followed the exercise leading to withdrawal of students from schools by parents, misconception of the actual motive behind the exercise by stakeholders, community leaders and a general reservation by the public for whom the outreach is intended.
To this end and to ensure no further escalation of the situation, His Excellency the Governor, Chief Willie Obiano has contacted the Army Authories and advised for immediate stoppage of the medical outreach until wide sensitization is conducted to reassure people of its intentions and benefits. The exercise has therefore been put on hold.
Parents and guardians are strongly advised to stop withdrawing their wards from schools as the situation has been handled. All schools within the State will remain open as there is no cause for alarm! Community leaders, Presidents General and all Stakeholders are hereby reassured of the commitment of the Governor and the State Government to the wellbeing of Ndi Anambra.
The State Government also strongly condemns observed rhetorics on social media completely misrepresenting the situation with insinuations of spread of diseases and death of students in schools arising from the exercise. The State categorically refutes these rhetorics and confirms that there is no death of any student anywhere in the State. Mischief makers are warned to desist from spreading falsehood. Anambra remains calm and peaceful!
Thank you!
Prof Solo Chukwulobelu
Secretary to the State Government.
