Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah berates Gov. Soludo over Flavour’s decision to hold father’s burial in Enugu

Ifeanyi Ubah, the senator from Anambra South, blamed Chukwuma Soludo, the Governor of Anambra, for Flavour’s decision to bury his father in Enugu instead of Anambra.

The burial ceremony of Flavour’s father became a topic of regional pride, with Flavour choosing to lay his father to rest in Enugu despite his roots in Umunze, Anambra.

Cubana Chief Priest revealed that the original plan was to hold the burial in Umunze but was moved to Enugu due to security concerns in Anambra.

Ubah criticized Soludo for failing to address security issues in Umunze and accused him of meddling in the situation.

Ubah apologized to Flavour for the circumstances leading to the burial in Enugu.

“I apologise to Chinedu Okoli (Mr. Flavour) for missing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate the life and time of his father in his hometown, he said.

“I would have secured Orumba and the entire Anambra South senatorial district if the state government hadn’t stopped my security initiative, despite its success in the Nnewi Pilot program.

“The state government’s actions have left my constituents vulnerable to security threats, particularly in areas currently under siege by non-state actors, which would have been liberated by now. I will continue to advocate for the security and well-being of my people, despite the obstacles.

“In 2023, I launched the security initiative aimed to provide comprehensive security coverage for the Anambra South senatorial district.

“Following its success in Nnewi, plans were underway to expand the programme to Orumba North and South, Aguata, Ihiala, Nnewi South, and Ekwusigo. However, the state government’s interference halted the initiative’s progress, introducing politics into security matters and prioritizing the governor’s second-term bid over the welfare of the people.

“We used a combination of artificial intelligence, local intelligence, walkie-talkies, and 4G High Definition CCTV security networking systems to achieve this.

“The state government’s actions have left my constituents vulnerable to security threats, particularly in areas currently under siege by non-state actors, which would have been liberated by now. I will continue to advocate for the security and well-being of my people, despite the obstacles.”
