Someone called from Abuja wanting to know if Senator Ifeanyi Ubah travelled out of the country. The caller said he is surprised that while other senators-elect were in Abuja lobbying to meet with the President-elect and others lobbying to secure a juicy committee in the senate, the Prince of the Senate has not been seen around.
On enquiry, we found out that while all the national assembly members-elect have relocated to Abuja, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah is with his people in Anambra south senatorial zone designing and working out strategies to tackle the high level of insecurity in the area.
Senator Ifeanyi Ubah has developed a new security architectural model and Nnewi North LGA due to its economic importance in Anambra south senatorial district and the state in general is being used as a pilot scheme in rolling out the programme.
AIF Media gathered that kidnappings and incidents of criminality have reduced drastically since the Senator began to deploy the new hi-tech security strategy in the area.
The YPP senator in his drive to tame insecurity in Anambra South Senatorial District has so far deployed 12 sienna buses, 2 patrol Hilux vans, 20 motorcycles, over 400 CCTV cameras, 500 walkie-talkie , 4000 painted wooden poles and so many cloud based invincible/detective cameras.
This has made it very difficult for kidnappers to operate freely in Nnewi North LGA. Before this intervention, Nnewi North was witnessing a rate of 7-10 kidnappings a day, but it has reduced drastically since this security model was rolled out and deployed by the performing senator.
His effort has brought confidence in the youths who now form security vigilante volunteers. These volunteers are presently undergoing trainings on information gathering, intelligence, and security networking. Painted wooden barricades are also being deployed for use in securing the Streets/Exit points to prevent freeing criminals once a security alarm goes off or lock-down order is given with the walkie-talkie.
Insurance policy for the vigilante volunteers is in progress. This will help mitigate the financial impact on these vigilantes.
The new security architecture model will be replicated in the remaining LGAs in the zone as soon as it is fully operational. Nnewi will serve as a model for deployment to the other local government areas in the senatorial zone.
The model is a complete package of Operation Light-Up, Secure and Empower Anambra South Senatorial District which was launched in December 2022.
Senator Dr Ifeanyi Ubah is an idea bearer. He in the senate to use the opportunity it offers to bring true dividends of democracy to the people.
While others are in Abuja, Ikemba Ndigbo is with his people in the senatorial zone, finding solutions to their problems. This goes to show how he loves his people.
In the last few days he was personally involved in some rescue efforts, where kidnappers who took away their victims were pursued, using various tracking gadgets. He mobilised his people with security agencies and went after the kidnappers and eventually rescued the victims.
This is what true leadership entails. Ifeanyi Ubah is not in overseas holidaying. He is Anambra south empowering his people and finding solution to their various challenges. Definitely, when the 10th National Assembly starts on June, his people will equally feel his impact.
