The South-East Women Professionals based in Anambra have applauded the Nigerian Armed Forces and other sister agencies for their efforts in improving the security situation in the region.
This was made known in a statement jointly signed by the President of the group, Mrs Ijeoma Okafor and Secretary, Princess Ada Udi and made available to Journalists in Abuja on Saturday, September, 2023.
The group attributed the feat to the efforts of the Armed Forces and the unwavering commitment of the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Christopher Musa.
The group said: “The CDS is fully committed to the restoration of peace nationwide especially in the South-East region.”
The statement acknowledged the significant improvement recorded as business activities which were initially grounded in the region were gradually bouncing back.
The group also solicited the cooperation and understanding of the residents to the security agencies for lasting peace and stability in the zone.
“We cannot but command the Armed Forces under its present leadership for the improvement of the security situation in the South-East zone.
“The zone has been turned into a war zone by criminals who were trying to traumatize the peace loving people of the zone.
“The ongoing clearance operations by troops of the AFN are a welcome development as life is gradually returning to normal.
“We, therefore, urge the residents to support and work with the military toward restoring peace and stability in the area,” the group stated.
