Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has approved extra-street lights to beef up security and enhance surveillance in the state as the Yuletide approaches.
Disclosing this to newsmen in Awka at the weekend, Harry Uduh, the state Service Head of Service, said the government deemed it fit to provide more street-lights to illuminate every nook and cranny of Anambra, as government does not want to lose any citizen on account of bad roads and total darkness in some parts of the state.
Uduh explained that the governor realized that the ones deployed in the state currently were not adequate for the pressure on the roads, pointing out that the street-lights when mounted, would enhance surveillance, as well as provide adequate vision during and after the Yuletide.
The Head of Service noted that the security chiefs in the state can testify that Governor Obiano has provided security in the state, especially with the constant provision of security vehicles and a host of other apparatus to security agencies to boost their operations in crime-fighting and crime prevention in Anambra State.
He equally recalled that the state governor had said that in no distant time, the government would launch Close Circuit Television (CCTV) at strategic locations across the state for the purposes of crime detection and crime prevention.
Meanwhile, the state HoS also disclosed that works were on-going on most of the internal roads, as well as some federal roads where the Anambra State government was putting some palliatives to ensure that the roads were in good shape in preparation for the Christmas and New year festivities.
