The withdrawal of majority of the security personnel attached to the governor of Rivers state by Rivers state police commissioner on the order from above is not only a mutiny attempt on the office of the governor of Rivers state but a rape of democratic principles.
Though this is not the first time the APC led federal government is using the instrumentality federal to intimate the people’s governor of Rivers state .
Recall that the Governor of Ekiti State , Ayo Fayose and other PDP governors who were in Portharcourt for PDP convention were held
hostage in their lodge by men of Nigeria police and other security agencies, while the governor of Rivers state was also denied exit out of Government House on the same day.
Recently, operatives of DSS mahandled the executive governor of Rivers state in their failed attempt to unlawfully arrest a high court judge in Portharcourt. At times , one begin to ask what the interest of APC is in Rivers state , an unarguably PDP
A government that promised Nigerians a positive turnaround suddenly became one that causes the citizenry pains ,hunger and intimidation.I want to urge the APC led federal government and it’s agents to channel their energy to delivering on the uncountable promises they made Nigerians and allow the governor of Rivers state to concentrate in his good works for the people of Rivers state.
The legislative rerun election bid for 10th of December is strictly a Rivers affair, only popular candidates can emerge. It is within the powers of the electorates to choose who represents them at any level, no amount of security threats and militarization can surmount the will of the people.
Rivers people are proud and solidly behind their performing governor, and are determined to elect those that will work in harmony with their governor to achieve a Better Rivers state. The ploy to intimidate the people’s governor and expose him to security risk is an action in futility, because the prayers of the majority of Rivers people will subvert what ever evil calculations of the extremists.
