Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has urged members of 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.
The State PDP chairman, Brother Felix Obuah, made the appeal in Port Harcourt, while reacting to comments by ex-Governor Rotimi Amaechi on Channels Television, that if Governor Nyesom Wike wanted peace in the state, he (Wike) should come and beg him.
Brother Obuah took 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.
Further, the party chairman regretted that Amaechi’s comment had further vindicated the PDP,that he (Amaechi) and members of the APC were behind all acts of violence in some parts of the state.
The PDP arrow head believed the security agencies were taking note of the incisive comments by the APC leaders, that touch on the security of the state and would act fast as such attitude presented the APC leaders as security threat.
He, however, urged Amaechi to concentrate on his official duty as Minister of Transport, to justify the reason for his appointment.
Brother Obuah 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.
