Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi has challenged the Nigerian Army to be professional in managing security during the 2015 polls across the country.
Amaechi made the statement during a courtesy visit on him by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Kenneth Minimah, alongside other top military brass, at the Government House, in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State.
The governor expressed his concern over the wave of kidnapping in the state and solicited the support of the visiting military officers in combating the crime.
Responding, General Minimah said part of his mission was to seek the cooperation of the Rivers State Government in achieving his goal of proving effective security cover across the country. He assured that his men would remain professional in maintaining security in the country, especially in the North-East that has been bugged with insurgency from the Boko Haram sect. Also in attendance at the meeting were members of the State Executive Council.
