The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), has reacted to the threat by the federal government to declare a state of emergency in Anambra State over the worsening insecurity in the State.

Saga Gist reported that the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami disclosed this after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja on Wednesday.

The Minister stated that the Federal Government is determined to ensure a hitch-free election in the State.

However, a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Barrister Tex Okechukwu, and issued on Wednesday, APGA frowned at the threat and called on the Federal Government not to toy with the idea of declaring emergency rule in Anambra.

The national leadership of the party described the threat as uncalled for, since Anambra State has ranked for over seven years now as the most peaceful State in Nigeria.

APGA also queried the rationale behind the idea of planning to declare a state of emergency in Anambra State with less than one month to the governorship election when it was yet to do the same in worse states such as Borno, Yobe, Kaduna, Niger, and Nasarawa.

The party urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to give in to the devious schemes of a few desperadoes, but to focus on the far-reaching benefits of sustaining the peace and progress that had existed in Anambra State before the present insecurity set in.

It also advised the government to look inwards and unmask those instigating trouble in the state rather than taking a decision that would cause more harm than good to our democracy.

It further called on all well-meaning people in Anambra State to rise up and rebuke the plan as it would diminish all the landmarks recorded by the present APGA-led government in the State.

According to the party leadership, “We reason that some persons are afraid to face the electorate in Anambra State and are devising a face-saving method to trample upon the will of the people”.
