The Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has described as very unfortunate the statement by Attorney General Abubakar Malami threatening to declare a state of emergency in Anambra state.
Obiano stated this during an interaction with State House Correspondents after a meeting with Buhari in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The governor who said he reported Malami to the President on the matter, disclosed that the statement was not Buhari’s idea.
The Governor wondered why he had not contemplated the imposition of emergency rule in northern States during massive killings occasioned by banditry.
“That’s a very unfortunate comment by the Attorney-General. Malami.
“Very unfortunate. I also reported that to the President and this is not in the books of the President because he knows that Anambra has been the safest state in Nigeria for seven years plus,” he said.
He said he would call the Attorney General to express his mind to him over the suggestion, insisting apart from the recent security crisis, Amambra had been the most peaceful State in the south east.
