Politics 'No Space for Boko Haram in South East Nigeria'- Governor Obiano



Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state on Monday declared that South-East, Nigeria would not allow Boko Haram insurgents to extend its activities to the region.

Obiano made the declaration when he spoke with State House correspondents after a meeting of four South-East governors with President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The other governors were Theodore Orji of Abia, Martin Elechi of Ebonyi and Sullivan Chime of Enugu.

Obiano was reacting to the discovery of bomb at a Living Faith World Bible Church in Owerri on Sunday.

"Boko Haram can't get there. I can assure you that we will not allow that to happen. I can't tell you in any material detail about bombs found and bombs not found. All I can assure you is that we are very alert in the South-East and watching what is going on,’’ he said.

He said the governors were at the State House to express their solidarity with Jonathan in view of the pressure he was facing over the current security challenges in the country.

"The president is a human being, he is under a lot of pressure and some other people are making the work a lot more difficult for him by the kind of utterances they make.Instead of supporting him to steer us out of this storming waters, they are adding kerosene to fire.

"So, we are here to tell him that we are behind him, supporting him and that he should count on us", Obiano added.
