Security agencies have been charged to keep a vigilant watch on the activities of the Rivers State Government with regards to its intent to arm youths to cause mayhem in next year’s general elections.
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, who raised the alarm on Tuesday in a statement circulated in Port Harcourt, also warned the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, to drop his agenda of using violence to force himself on the people of the State for a second term in office.
Eze, in the statement, revealed that Governor Wike is bent on repeating the same strategy of using violence and killing of members of the APC in the state to intimidate voters, just the way it was done in 2015, adding that the Governor is aggressively pursuing the violence option, under the guise of his Neighbourhood Watch, knowing that his plot to decimate the APC through Senator Magnus Abe had failed.
Commending the Nigerian Army’s 6th Division for its vigilance and prompt step to halt the recruitment and training of Rivers youths for the ‘slaughterman’s job’ in the guise of Neighborhood Watch, Eze charged all security agencies to take Governor Wike’s threat to continue with his bloody plans by using the Government House as training camp for his personal army.
“One of the major principles of governance and as contained in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is the protection of lives and property of the citizens in consideration of lack of respect for the sanctity of human life, which has become the common decimal since Nyesom Wike assumed office demonstrating his administration’s incompetence in this regard.
“Eze counsels Wike to have a rethink and avoid any action that will cause mayhem during the forthcoming election in the State and concentrate on how to hand over power peacefully in 2019 as his dream of winning elections ever in Rivers State is not only elusive but highly impossible as his demonstration of incompetence is so pronounced and unacceptable.
