Derivation formula: Rivers people slam Northern govs

Rivers People Congress, RPC, has described as reckless, the statement credited to Northern governors, led by Governor Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu of Niger State, calling for review of Revenue Derivation Formula.

In a statement by National Coordinator of RPC and leader of Okirika people in Lagos, Chief Martins Kunumgbe, the group called on the Federal Government to call the governor and his Northern colleagues to order, adding that the statement was a threat to national peace.

He said: “He has proved that he is not qualified to speak publicly on national matters, since he can not guard his utterances. The Northern governors should tackle Boko Haram and solve their various internal problems.”
