Asatu Prime Minister urges communities to emulate Nnewi South, support Soludo on rural development

Must read

Communities and well-to-do individuals in Anambra State have been urged to play complimentary roles in support of Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo towards achieving his dream of a livable homeland for the people.

The Prime Minister of Anambra State Association of Town Unions (ASATU), Ambassador Dr. John Chukwudi Metchie, made the appeal while reacting to the decision of communities in Nnewi South to install high-tech digital equipments for the security of lives and property of the area.

It would be recalled that a group known as Nnewi Concerned Citizens, had, during the ‘Nnewi Easter Summit 2023,’ launched New Digital Security project that would cover the communities in the local government.


In a statement Thursday, by his media office, Chief Metchie who doubles as the President General of Umueri Community, commended members of Nnewi Concerned Citizens and the Presidents General of the communities that make up Nnewi South, for what he described as their patriotic gesture which he said, demonstrates their commitment to the betterment of lives of their people.

He therefore urged well-to-do individuals and communities across the state, to emulate the people of Nnewi South by coming up with developmental initiatives for their communities, since, according to him, government alone cannot do everything.

He said- I want to commend members of Nnewi Concerned Citizens for their patriotic initiative by sponsoring the provision and installation of digital security equipment in the communities that make up the local government.

“This is also to commend, in a special way, the Presidents General of the communities in the Local Government, for being part of this great movement on security.

“I am exceptionally happy with what I saw in the trending video from the Nnewi Easter Summit. This is because, as the ASATU Prime Minister and President General Umueri General Assembly, security of lives and property is something I am very interested in.

“In the past one year in office, I introduced CCTV camera installations in our community. I alos launched walkie-talkie usage for our vigilante group, donated cars to aid our vigilante group as well as pleaded with other communities in the state to also introduce the same in their communities to curb crime in Anambra state.

“I was overjoyed when I saw that the people of Nnewi South did not only heed to my call but did it in a way that is marvelous in human eyes. They invested heavily in the acquisition of CCTV security cameras, Walkie talkie, cars for the vigilante group, covering the whole L.G.A.

“For me, that is very a commendable action that could only come from a group of progressive minds. I am very proud of the leadership in Nnewi South.

“It is my prayer that well meaning citizens from other local government areas, come together to do what the people of Nnewi South is doing.

“The above is necessary because, Security is not solely the duty of government as all of us are to get involved. Therefore, let us continue to support the government by doing what we can do to ensure that all corners of Anambra state are safe,” Metchie said.
