Following renewed hostilities in Jos, which have caused the Plateau State Government to re-impose a twenty-four-hour curfew in the city, the Anambra State Government has decided to expand its evacuation of students of Anambra State origin from the University of Jos to include all Anambra indigenes in Jos, who wish to return to the state.
A release signed by the commissioner for Information & Public Enlightenment, Mr. C. Don Adinuba said such persons are enjoined to go to the GUO Motors station in Jos, where officials of the Anambra State Liaison office in Abuja will identify them and, in conjunction with GUO Motors management, arrange for their immediate travel.
According to the release, Governor Willie Obiano has directed the State Liaison office in Abuja to monitor round the clock, the safety of all Anambra students at the University of Jos, the NTA TV College, Jos, the College of Accountancy, Jos, the School of Forestry, Jos, the National Film Institute, Jos, and the Veterinary Institute, Jos.
The release directs that every report is to be dispatched to the governor directly through electronic means and also to the Secretary to the State Government for immediate action.
It further stated that the safety of every Anambra person everywhere in Nigeria and beyond is of paramount importance to the state administration.
