On the reason behind the theme of the event, Ochai said, “Insecurity is not just a threat to our lives; it is a big barrier to our development. Without security, our dreams of economic prosperity and social progress remain out of reach. A secure environment is the foundation upon which we can build a thriving economy. Investors, both local and foreign, are deterred by the threat of violence and instability. Businesses cannot flourish in an environment where safety is not guaranteed. It is clear that if we are to attract investment, create jobs, and drive economic growth, we must first ensure the safety of our people and property.”
