The Association of Esan Professionals has pledged to partner with the government and other stakeholders to tackle the insecurity confronting Esan communities in Edo State.

The newly elected President of AEP, Mr Henry Egbiki, disclosed this, according to a statement on Wednesday, after the inauguration of the new executive council in Lagos.

Egbiki said, “Insecurity has caused serious hardship and poverty to communities in Esan land in Edo state, as fear of bandits and kidnappers have limited the people’s access to their farmlands.

The President also commended the past leadership of the association for the hard work and positive impact they have made on the social, cultural, and economic development of Esanland, especially in the area of education, security, and agriculture.
