The deputy governor, while addressing the synod delegates, stated that no meaningful development can thrive in any society that is faced with insecurity, calling on citizens to join Anambra State government in tackling the scourge.
Dr Ibezim also urged the church to keep supporting and praying for Professor Chukwuma Soludo-led administration, adding that no go government can stand without the support of the church.
While promising that it will not pull out from supporting the church, Dr Ibezim re-emphasized the government’s desire to make the state clean, habitable and prosperous homeland.
