Senator Ifeanyi Ubah criticises Governor Soludo over Governor Flavour’s decision to hold his father’s funeral in Enugu


Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, representing Anambra South, has slammed Anambra State Governor Chukwuma Soludo over Flavour's decision to bury his father in Enugu instead of Anambra.



Flavour's
father's burial ceremony became a point of pride for the region as he chose to bury his father in Enugu despite having roots in Umunze, Anambra State.



The
chief priest of Kubana revealed that the burial was initially scheduled to take place in Umunze but was shifted to Enugu due to security concerns in Anambra.



Ubah
criticised Soludo for not taking into account security issues in Umunze and accused him of interfering in the situation.



Ubah
apologized to Flavour for the circumstances that led to the funeral in Enugu.



“I apologise to Chinedu Okoli (Mr. Flavour) for missing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate the life and time of his father in his hometown, he said.


“I would have secured Orumba and the entire Anambra South senatorial district if the state government hadn’t stopped my security initiative, despite its success in the Nnewi Pilot program.


“The state government’s actions have left my constituents vulnerable to security threats, particularly in areas currently under siege by non-state actors, which would have been liberated by now. I will continue to advocate for the security and well-being of my people, despite the obstacles.


“In 2023, I launched the security initiative aimed to provide comprehensive security coverage for the Anambra South senatorial district.


“Following its success in Nnewi, plans were underway to expand the programme to Orumba North and South, Aguata, Ihiala, Nnewi South, and Ekwusigo. However, the state government’s interference halted the initiative’s progress, introducing politics into security matters and prioritizing the governor’s second-term bid over the welfare of the people.


“We used a combination of artificial intelligence, local intelligence, walkie-talkies, and 4G High Definition CCTV security networking systems to achieve this.


“The state government’s actions have left my constituents vulnerable to security threats, particularly in areas currently under siege by non-state actors, which would have been liberated by now. I will continue to advocate for the security and well-being of my people, despite the obstacles.”
