The State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro Felix Obuah, has urged the main opposition party in the state, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to support efforts by the State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike to create a new Rivers State devoid of violence and any kind of criminality for peace and sustainable development rather than instigating violence.

Bro Obuah made the appeal while reacting to comments by former Governor Rotimi Amaechi on Channels Television that if Governor Wike wants peace in the State, he (Wike) should come and beg him.

Bro Obuah takes a swipe at Amaechi’s statement, regretting that such comment came from a former governor, and leader of a political party, who ought to exhibit high level of discipline, responsibility and maturity stressing that Amaechi’s comment has further vindicated the PDP that he (Amaechi) and members of the APC are behind all acts of violence in some parts of the State.

The PDP chairman believes the security agencies are taking note of the incisive comments by the APC leaders that touch on the security of the State and will act fast as this attitude presents the APC leaders as security threat.

Bro Obuah however urges Amaechi to concentrate on his official duty as Minister of Transport to justify the reason for his appointment.

He therefore, called on all Rivers people, irrespective of their political affiliations, to support Governor Wike in his efforts to enthrone a peaceful and crime-free Rivers State, conducive for investment and development.
