Education, key to sustained economic development – Ikpeazu

Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia has extended the three-day dusk to dawn curfew he imposed on Aba to Friday, Sept. 15.

Ikpeazu made this known in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Enyinnaya Appolos, and made available to our reporter in Umuahia on Wednesday.

He advised residents and visitors to cooperate with security agents in order to ensure the maintenance of law and order within the commercial city and its environs.

Ikpeazu expressed displeasure that people were being compelled to raise their hands while passing through security checkpoints.

He, therefore, urged security agents and all authorities concerned to ensure that such acts, and other forms of inhumane and barbaric treatment of people were discontinued immediately.

Our reporter recalls that following security concerns the Abia Government on Tuesday clamped a three-day dusk to dawn curfew in the state’s commercial nerve centre beginning 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The curfew has now been extended to Friday.
