By Goodluck Ikiebe.



President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has described those responsible for the recent attacks at some Police formations and Correctional facilities in Imo State as enemies of the people.

Senator Lawan said the aim of the attackers was probably to cause a distraction for the Imo state government or even the Federal Government.

The Senate President spoke on Friday in Owerri, the Imo state capital city, where he commissioned a road project which was completed by the administration of Governor Hope Uzodimma.

The road which is named after a former Senate President, Late Chief Evan Enwerem, is one of the many infrastructural projects inaugurated to mark one year in office of Governor Uzodimma.

Speaking at the occasion, Senator Lawan charged the people to take ownership of the projects, utilize them well and protect them as their projects.

The Senate President said the appointment of the new Service Chiefs and Acting Inspector General of Police was to inject fresh ideas in a bid to finally overcome the security challenges.

Senator Lawan, who urged the people of Imo State to continue to support the government of the day, also noted that the achievements recorded despite the decline in revenues were the result of prudence and discipline.

The Senate President was accompanied on the trip by Senator Jibrin Barau, Senator Biobarakuma Degi, Senator Halliru Jika, Senator Sani Musa, Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele.
