The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is shocked at the level of desperation of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the State to grab power that it has stopped at nothing to wish to cause catastrophy and breakdown of law and order in the State by linking the State Government and the PDP to last Tuesday’s unlawful protest on the streets of Port Harcourt by members of a group called the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The party regrets that APC’s publicity Secretary, Chris Fynebone who by his utterances and actions shown a detestable penchant for mischief and blackmail to make a living would accept to maliciously undertake to promote disaffection between the government and the peaceful and more reasonable people of Rivers State by going on air to allege support for the Biafran agitators against Governor Nyesom Wike, a prominent apostle of one indivisible Nigeria just to score a cheap political point.
If not for his dwarfed sense of history and his insatiable longing for material gains, Mr Chris Fynebone would have known that the stale news of Biafra agitation was long known to Nigerians and the Federal Government who had placed a manhunt for the faceless Director of the unlicensed Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu until he was reportedly arrested by security operatives in Lagos last week, leading to pockets of sporadic protests in some parts of the country which the Rivers State Government along other State Chief Executive, have described in unmistakable terms as unacceptable.
Notwithstanding the glaring mischief behind this unguarded statement by the APC in the State which as usual, was dished out through Mr Chris Fynebone, the PDP would as a matter of urgent public importance and due to the serious implication and weight of the allegation, urge the Inspector – General of Police and the Dept of State Services (DSS) to invite Mr Fynebone to explain and provide evidence of his high treasonable statement.
We are however, very bold to say that both Governor Wike and the PDP in Rivers State are, and will continue to remain in the fore-front of one united Nigeria against all centrifugal forces no matter where they come from.
Governor Wike has lived this belief, demonstrated it and is ever ready to give up his life for the corporate existence of our only country, Nigeria.
To him and the leadership of PDP in the State, the six geo-political zones are only mere delineations for administrative convenience are not different entities from the larger Nigeria.
If there is anybody or any group that are self-seeking, subversive and discriminatory, it’s the APC leadership in Rivers State.
The good people of Rivers State and residents alike, should therefore discountenance the nonsensical credited to the APC publicity Secretary in the State, and consign the misinformation into the garbage basket where it emanated from and rightly belongs.
