RIVERS STATE GOVERNMENT REASSURES RESIDENTS OF SAFETY
Rivers State Government has assured residents and the people of Rivers
State to ignore rumours peddled by enemies of the state that there
will be a violent protest by some disgruntled politicians who have
lost relevance in the politics of Rivers State.
Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications Barr Emma
Okah said this today in a press statement issued in Port Harcourt.
Okah blamed the plot to scare people or cause any violence in the
State on the All Pogressives Congress (APC) and their collaborators.
“The APC in the state has set their only house on fire and since they
have no where to go, they have resorted to peddling rumours, scaring
people and promoting violence” Okah said, advising that those who are
hiring students as tools of protest should first, bring back their
children to be in the front line.
Okah said the same persons who inflicted problems upon themselves are
now looking for those to blame for their lawlessness and called on the
people to remain law abiding and go about their lawful businesses in
He assured that the Rivers state Government will continue to respond
to the needs of the people and their interest without fear, noting
that the mandate of the people given to Govenor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike
cannot be toyed with.
“We call on the Nigeria Police and other security agencies to watch
the dangerous romance with the APC and invitation to operate as if
security agencies are only for them and not for the protection of
other Nigerians” Okah said, pointing that no patriotic person will
seek the destruction of his State simply because he is unable to force
a government of his choice on the people.
