Anambra hunters rally support for Soludo, seeks materials for effectiveness
As the newly sworn in governor of Anambra State Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo continue to gradually unfold the programs of his administration, hunters in the State under the umbrella of Nigeria Hunters Council (NHC) Anambra State Command have joined forces with other sections of people in the State to express their support for the new administration.
The above-named organization was established under the Nigerian Hunters Council (NHC) Establishment Bill, 2020.
The bill was sponsored by Senator Biodun Olujimi, enacted by the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and has successfully scaled through the second reading and a recently concluded public hearing on the floor of the Senate.
The Commander General of NHC of the Federation is Amb. Dr. Joshua Wole Osatimehin.
NHC uses conventional and traditional hunters to combat crime and criminality (Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, Banditry, Terrorism, Rape, Drug Abuse and so on) in the forest and bushes within the entire country, and Anambra State is no exception.
The group said it is well acquainted with terrains in various security agencies (The Nigerian Police, The Nigerian Army, Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corp, Department of State Service e.tc.) for appropriate and accelerated action.
NHC, in a press briefing in Awka the State capital told journalists that they are impressed with what Governor Soludo is unfolding so far, mostly particularly the flushing out of revenue touts all over the State and quick release of 20-man list of Commissioners who are ready to go all the way with him.
The State Commander, Ogudogwo Titus Chukwudi, observed with excitement that Soludo has already proven that the decision of the people to give him their mandate to be Governor is a perfect one.
He noted that halting the menace of touts in Anambra and appointment of Commissioners within two weeks of assuming office are notable signs of good governance the people are yearning for.
According to the Commander, “from the look of things, what Soludo needs to fly higher in providing good governance is total support of the people.
“Like we supported him during the election by giving him our votes, we are also extending the support to his administration and ready to contribute our own quota for the progress of our State.”
When asked the specific areas they would wish to assist the Soludo administration, the Anambra NHC Command boss said they would certainly make positive impact in the area of assisting all other Federal Security Agencies in the State to curb crimes such as Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, Banditry, Terrorism, Rape, Drug Abuse and so on.
And through this, he said, Anambra State will be safe to Anambrarians and investors for business, which will further increase the economy of the state, if they are adequately mobilised and engaged with materials to work with.
He added: “We have the capacity to help in making Anambra State a crime free State, because no other agencies knows the ungoverned places like the forest, bushes and abandoned buildings within the State like the hunters.
“It is possible to achieve “a crime free State” under Soludo’s administration if we can get the adequate support to enhance our effectiveness,” he stressed.
