Rivers Crisis: Rivers State Is At War, The Governor Is Helpless, The Police Is Helpless – Okocha

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has called on the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency, citing a “full-blown war” in the region. According to a report by LEADERSHIP, this urgent plea was made by the APC Caretaker Committee Chairman, Chief Tony Okocha, during a press conference held in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.

“Rivers State is at war,” Okocha declared. “And the dramatis personae who are responsible for the mayhem that has claimed lives are known. The governor is helpless, the police is helpless. Therefore, the APC in Rivers State is calling for a state of emergency in Rivers State as a way of taming the mayhem, and the upsurge that is going on in the state. I call on the federal government to act fast in this regard.”

The call for drastic measures comes amid an escalating political crisis revolving around the tenure of the chairmen of the 23 local government areas in the state. Chief Okocha emphasized that immediate intervention is crucial to prevent further deterioration of the situation, which he warned could have significant repercussions for the national economy due to Rivers State’s strategic importance.

The crisis intensified earlier this week when Governor Siminalayi Fubara swore in caretaker committees to manage the local governments, following the expiration of the three-year terms of the previous officeholders. The former chairmen were reportedly aligned with Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), who is currently embroiled in a political conflict with Governor Fubara.

Okocha cautioned that allowing the crisis to escalate unchecked would inevitably impact Nigeria’s economy, given Rivers State’s crucial role in the nation’s economic landscape…..See More
