Asaba — DELTA State governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, yesterday, at an inter-denominational thanksgiving service to mark this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day, called for a peaceful society, saying that no amount of blackmail would deter him from protecting the lives of Deltans.

He charged Deltans to ensure the maintenance of peace, urging them not to encourage or hide criminal elements in their midst, but to aid security agents in fishing them out.

He said: “I will not shelve my responsibilities, but will do the work I had taken the oath of office for. Using the security forces, I will do my work of providing security for all Deltans. Let us ensure a peaceful society, so that we will not need to send security men to communities, to keep security on our roads.”

He decried the blackmailing of security operatives deployed to keep peace in Kokori.
