2019 election: You can’t intimidate me – Wike tells Buhari
Rivers State Governor, Chief Barr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has blatant that no level of terrorization by the Federal Government’s security actions will intimidate his government and people of the state.
Wike said his government remained steadfast to the legal use of the people’s mandate to advance the sequence of development.
The Governor spoke during the commissioning of Anaka multi-million naira multi-purpose community hall Ogbogoro town on Sunday. He was represented by his Chief of Staff, Engr Chukwuemeka Woke.
He christened the people of the state to remain peaceful and tranquil despite the challenging actions against their interest.
Wike said the recent attack on the Rivers State Neighbourhood Safety Corps Agency training camp by the Army was done in bad faith. He further stated that, “The bill establishing Neighbourhood Safety Corps Agency was passed by the Rivers State House of Assembly, and signed into law by the Governor of Rivers State. If anybody or any organization or institution has a challenge, it obvious, they should go to Court.
“You are aware and have seen the level of provocation by federal agencies. Only last week, they invaded the training camp of the Neighbourhood Safety Corps Agency.
“But we are urging Rivers people to remain firm and strong. I tell you as far as Rivers state is concerned, we cannot be intimidated. No amount of federal might can intimidate us.
“I thank you again for the peaceful atmosphere that we witnessed here since the week-long celebration. It shows that this community is in peace and everybody is living in peace.
” There cannot be any meaningful development in any community where there is no peace.
“Let me also thank the youths of this community because I am aware that this project would have not come to this stage of commissioning , if the youths did not maintain peace in this community.
“I urge other communities in Ikwere ethnic nationality and indeed Rivers state at large to emulate the conduct of Anaka community.”
