The Civil Liberties Organization (CLO) on Sunday called on governments and leaders in the South-East to do more in building infrastructure to create jobs and stem criminality.
The Anambra state of Chairman of CLO, Mr. Vincent Ezekwueme, made the call while speaking with newsmen in Enugu on the recently inaugurated Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport, Umueri.
According to Ezekwueme, testing and first aircraft landing at Anambra International Airport is not just a landmark achievement but the greatest democratic dividend bequeathed to posterity by Gov. Willie Obiano’s administration.
He said that there was a need to build more infrastructure that would make more impact to people’s lives in the zone.
“There is a need to get infrastructure that will spur economic activities and engage more people especially the youths in order to stem restiveness and crime,” he said.
The chairman also commended the Minister of Aviation, Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria and all relevant government agencies that made the project a reality.
“I initially thought that the airport project was a usual political statement, but to my greatest consternation the project was completed beyond expectations.
“I appeal to our political leaders to tackle people’s oriented projects and infrastructure provision the way Anambra International Airport was accomplished,” he said.
