This was contained in a press statement titled enough is enough issued to news men jointly endorsed by Comrades Vincent Ezekwueme and Chidi Mbah in reaction to recent arson,destruction and setting ablaze of Police B Division and Independent National Electoral Commission all in Awka .It is unfortunate and despicable that the state is sliding into anarchy and lawlessness due to callous and unconscionable actions of some disgruntled people .

Just few weeks after communal clash of Omor and Anaku which the state known for her peaceful disposition witnessed yet another barbaric, insensate ,despicable and callous burning and destruction of security personnel facilities and INEC buildings ,operational vehicles and equipments just few months to Anambra governorship election.

Violence, maiming, killings and arson cannot be a solution to any problems rather it will increase problems because money that will be use to provide basic necessities of life will be utilise for replacement of damaged facilities .

The primary function of every government is to secure and ensure protection of lives and livelihood of her citizens .There is urgent need for collective and collaborative efforts of both the government and citizens to restructure and invigorate security architecture for effective and efficient policing and securing
of the country, her citizens, public and private facilities, this will certainly encourage investors and improve the economy,
infrastructures and reduce unemployment.

CLO equally pray for eternal repose of the souls of security personnel and citizens that lost their lives and for God to give deceased families and their loved ones fortitude and grace to bear and endure the irreparable and irreplaceable loss.

We passionately reiterate our early appeal to the political class, those in authority and public spirited individuals and corporate organisations to use empowerment, employment, poverty
eradication, education, skill acquisitions, inclusiveness and love for the masses to fight and win war against crimes, criminals, and youth restiveness .Worthy of note is with gun you can kill a terrorist, but with education, skill acquisitions,economic and social justice you can kill terrorism.

A hungry man cannot see right or wrong,what he sees is only food.
According to Paul Krugman the goal at the end is not to win elections, the goal is to serve, show empathy, love,selflessness and compassion and change the world for better.
For use to get it better,political class, civil and public servants and citizens should be agent for positive change and fight for common good, interest and welfare of the citizenry.
