RIVERS State Governor, Nyesom Wike has told President Muhammadu Buhari that Rivers people will never support violence, which he said was being orchestrated by leaders of APC in the state.
Speaking during an interactive session between President Muhammadu Buhari and traditional rulers of Rivers State in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, Wike said leaders who had imported war songs would not succeed.
The governor was apparently making reference to the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who was seen singing a war song in Igbo language at the APC presidential campaign.
Wike said, “Rivers State does not believe in violence and we will not support any dance for violence. Those who sing other people’s song for violence, they know what they achieve. They know what they gain,” he said.
The governor assured Nigerians that the evil plots to fuel violence by the APC would fail.
“I want to assure the President that Rivers State is a peaceful state. It will never be a violent state. I will not support violence and Rivers people will not support violence,” he said.
In his address, Chairman of Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers, King Dandeson Douglas Jaja, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that security agencies acted professionally during the elections.
King Jaja said that security agencies should not join the fray and complicate the issues of electoral violence.
The monarch lamented the closure of the seaports in Rivers State, which he added, had negatively affected the economy of the area
