Speaking during the flag off of the Abia state safe school programme in umuahia, Gov. Ikpeazu stated that the business of security and policing is the responsibility of all and sundry which required a strong synergy between the law enforcement agencies and relevant security stakeholders.

Represented by his deputy, Sir Ude Oko Chukwu, the governor harped on the need for citizens to see crime and security management as a joint obligation of the citizens, communities and the state at large.

He reassured of government's commitment to achieve the goal of not only the security of our children and youth but also secured lives and property of all residents of the state.

Earlier in his presentation, the coordinator of the state Safe School Program, Nwafor Nwachukwu Nwanganga described the program as a preventive one designed to checkmate and prevent juvenile delinquency in Primary and Post secondary school system in the state just as he disclosed that it hinges on re-orientation and security
