Nigerian Govt Threatens To Declare A State Of Emergency In Anambra State

The federal government has threatened to declare a state of emergency in Anambra State if the incessant killings and rising insecurity in the state persists.
This, it said, is to protect the sanctity of the scheduled November 6 governorship election in the state.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, made this position known on Wednesday, after a meeting of the Federal Executive Council presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to Malami, the government was determined to ensure a hitch-free election in Anambra, despite the wave of attacks and killings in the state.

“When our national security is attacked, and the sanctity of our constitutionally-guaranteed democracy is threatened, no possibility is ruled out.

“As a government, we have a responsibility to ensure the sustenance of our democratic order. As a government, we have a responsibility to provide security for lives and properties.

“So, within the context of these constitutional obligations of the government or the desire to establish democratic norms and order, there is no possibility that is ruled out.

“So, what I’m saying, in essence, is that no possibility is ruled out by government in terms of ensuring the sanctity of our democratic order, in terms of ensuring that our elections in Anambra hold.

“And you cannot rule out the possibility of declaration of state of emergency where it is established, in essence, that there is a failure on the part of the state government to ensure the sanctity of security of lives, properties and democratic order,” Malami said.

He however restated the position of the Federal Government to deploy its capacity to secure Anambra State and its people for the November governorship election.

      Why is it better?

  2. We already know their agenda to that from beginning. You want to rig in Andy Uba by fire by force.
    UBA's family can never see our government house.

    When all these started, was when Soludo was picked as Apga flag bearer, they tried to kill him.

    They are trying to instigate war in Anambra as to write their results from Abuja for us.

    Stella, Chike was a stake holder with his son in Anambra State. They are among the men that states, "Who" and "what" will happen in Anambra. They killed him for being vocal against Uba.

    They want to kill any soul that is against them in any Anambra, knowing fully that their Supreme Court Governor tactics will not work in Anambra.

    Uba's family was solely responsible for rigging out Peter Obi and installing Ngige under Obasanjo. They kidnapped Ngige, and they threaten him to sign an agreement to give them our State resources and other things but he refused.
    They did the same thing to Mbadinuju before for 8years. That's why the man was a disgrace to Anambra and Uli his village.
    They want to start the same thing again.

    Peter Obi chased them away from Anambra but they want to enter by crook and one chance.

    1. Shut up and stop talking trash.. Ipob re responsible for the death of Chike,even your number 2 man said it. You people are fond of denying their atrocities. Why wasn't he killed since then until you people started your madness. Keep denying ok until East become a place like Borno

    2. Thank you Amarachi na person wey never know what the Uba brother's are capable of they call Ipob i may not like the Ipob activities but Uba brother's play the dirtiest politics anybody can think of i cant forget what they did in Anambra state before the coming of Peter Obi they have started their nonsense again

  3. They should not threaten such. They should do it fast fast. No need to even notify them. Any action they get from the fed govt now they deserve it and much more. Annoying bunch!

  4. A wise man once said.... If you burn down your father's house, be ready to inherit ashes

  5. Mitchew...that's not a threat though

  6. Pls enforce it, Awka is so hot now!!!!!

  7. If I were u Mr. President, I'd blank them o, let them rule themselves, only them by their hands will beg government to intervene.

  8. What measures have they taken before now to comb the insecurity situation in state before declaring state of emergency? They should first take care of their states, Anambra State will never be Apc state

    1. Don't mind them.Some of these killings are politically motivated.Their aim is to make Anambra seem ungovernable while making sure that house members are quietly migrating to APC.Willie should keep moping till they decide to impeach him.Ndi ala,playing with people's lives.You will all get your rewards in due course.

  9. Anambra is not yet due for state of emergency declaration.I think it will pay anyone to look up reasons why state of emergency can be declared in a state first before applauding FG.Anambra state government needs to step up security first and foremost.I am presently in Anambra and none of the criteria for declaration has been met by the state as at today.

  10. No matter what APC is trying to do in Anambra state because NEXT month election there is no way APC will take over Anambra state through the back door. This is the best time for ALL Anambra state politicians should come together and speak in one voice to Malami and Buhari that it is unconstitutional to remove an “elected state governor declaring a state of emergency.
    Nigeria constitutional says that an elected state governor only be removed by impeachment or resignation. Where does Malami and Buhari get the theory to impose state of emergency in Anambra, take over all the structures, rig the election with the help of the army and install APC governor in the state. This is not acceptable and it will not work in Anambra state.
    Malami/Buhari please can you honestly tell Nigerians why you refused till today to declare a state of emergency in the following four (4) unsecure states till today.
    1. Katsina state
    2. Kaduna state
    3. Borno state
    4. Zamfara state
    Malami/Buhari your theory about Anambra state is unconstitutional and unacceptable.
    Here is my submission:
    Malami/Buhari should have tested their theory in two of the above 4 states before now.
    Thank you fellow Nigerians

    1. It's the 'thank you fellow Nigerians' for me😁

    2. If there is no election November 5, there will be a state of emergency when the governor's term ends.

    3. Buharidiot alert!

      Filling yourself up again with cheap drugs.🀦🏾‍♂

    4. Iyke Desmond...I now understand you properly... You see all you wrote up there is true.
      Anambra is one of the most politically enlightened but Andy and his brothers wants Anambra at a do or die cost but my pain is that Anambra elites are just watching!
      Nobody understands more what is happening in Anambra more than those living in Anambra.
      Iyke just gave you something to think about, until they tell us why the four states up there has not been under state of emergency,they should keep telling us what we already known about this govt!

  11. This is Apc plan from on set,to cause problem in Anambra in other to rig the election but God pass them.

    1. Can they cause problems in Anambra without the input of Anambrams themselves?

  12. When we were telling y'all that it's all politically motivated, you guys were blaming IPOB. You see this breakfast ba? It will go round.

    An unknown gunmen turned DSS just got shot and killed by the police in Imo state, nobody is talking about it, how convenient!

  13. I can see ipob members re having a field day with this info. Federal government should let you people kill yourselves instead of declaring a state of emergency since y'all don't have sense.

    1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ no nau, please remember there are innocent people in these places.

  14. Bokoharam is in control of 8 communities in Niger state and this mofos are obsessed with Southeast.

    1. Oh, so they should wait till the Eastern states become like Niger state? Of course not, the earlier it's nipped in the bud, the better.
