APC urges Buhari to intervene in Rivers crisis

31 March 2016, 17:32

Rivers - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the wake of the escalating crisis in the state.

The party appealed to Buhari to take decisive action to end the lingering political violence in the state and to bring the perpetrators to book.

“We received with happiness the recent statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that the murderous rerun election in Rivers State was shameful, unfortunate and barbaric,” said Rivers APC Chairman, Davies Ikanya.

“We agree with Mr. President that more Nigerians have been killed in Rivers than any other state in the country. What we are asking is, ‘what are the steps to be taken by the Federal Government to secure the State and her people from the PDP/Wike gang of killers?’” asked Ikanya.

The party has blamed Governor Nyesom Wike’s People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

“That Governor Wike has made Rivers State a killer field should give all Nigerians concern because we don’t know who will be the next victim as the Army, Police, Youth Corps members and hapless Rivers residents are not spared.”

The violence-riddled state is emerging from chaotic re-run elections.

They were reminiscent of the 2015 governorship poll that catapulted Wike to power.
