The chairman of Rivers State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro Felix Obuah, has dismissed the call by some individuals for a state of emergency in the state.
Oduah made this knon in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Jerry Needam.
According to Obuah, “All those calling for the declaration of a state of emergency in Rivers State are mischievous idlers who have been disengaged from the looting of the State resources by Governor Nyesom Wike’s New Rivers Vision.
“Having seen it’s no longer business as usual, the only option left for them is to foment trouble in and around the State to discredit the incumbent administration for frustrating them from further looting of State resources.”
The state chairman came up with this while reacting to what he described as the lamentation of criminals and looters of the State resources who have lost out in the new dispensation in Rivers State.
Obuah, depositing the mischief at the doorsteps of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said
“the idea was the real motive behind APC’s reason for causing crises in parts of the State and having failed in this criminal bid, has resorted to raising aimless and hopeless alarm over non-existent incidences of violence except the ones instigated by them to justify their mischievous call.”
Also describing the move by the frustrated APC as a lost battle, the State PDP boss said Rivers State is generally peaceful and that the economy is impressively picking up as a result of the focused leadership of the Wike administration.
He called on one Prince Odike who claimed to be the Deputy State Chairman of the APC to find a meaningful engagement other than lending himself as a willing tool for the new satanic device of the APC after Mr. Chris Finebone may have been dumped for ineptitude and his crass propaganda.
“We are therefore appealing to all Rivers people, Nigerians as a whole as well as the international community to continue to discountenance both the APC and whatever they stand for, having brought shame and untold hardship on the people. The Rivers State government is people-oriented and will continue to ensure there is utmost peace in and across the State to bring about meaningful development to the people.
“It’s also on record that Mr Odike said the mind of the APC and believes there can’t be peace in the State except a state of emergency is declared which means that the APC is clearly behind the pockets of crises in parts of the State to actualise their plot. This has also vindicated the PDP of drumming it loud and clear that the APC is behind the skirmishes in the state before and during the March 19, National and State Assembly re-run elections.
“The call for a state of emergency is therefore unnecessary and can only make sense in the minds of anarchists like the APC and its members.”
