… as Eagle Watch condemns Rivers’ crisis
PORT HARCOURT— NIGER-DELTA Youth for Positive Attitude and Progress, NYPAP, has appealed to Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State to settle his differences with President Goodluck Jonathan before people of the region would begin to see him as an enemy, ahead of 2015.
President of the youth body, Mr. Emmanuel Enisuo, in a statement, said: “We advise our brother, Governor Amae-chi, to bury the hatchet if he is not being used by the enemies of Niger Delta to truncate the dreams and aspiration of the Niger Delta people.
“We beg him to make peace with Mr. President so as not to be seen as an enemy of the Niger Delta people. We hereby, advise the Niger Delta youths to resist being used by politicians to work against the interest of the region and its unborn generation.”
“We also implore President Jonathan to take advantage of his constitutional right and contest the 2015 presidential election.”
Eagle Watch condemns Rivers’ crisis
A political pressure group, Eagle Watch for Good Governance, has criticised the political crisis in Rivers State and called on police authorities to invite the lawmakers in the state to explain their roles in the fracas.
The group, in a statement by Mr. Kwalekeme Cletus, National President, said: “Members of the House used their physical strength to enhance their political aspirations.”
The group said that the Commissioner of Police should be urged to give a detailed security brief on the issue, up to the point when the fracas started.
It advised the two factional leaders of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state to stop further hostility until the outcome of the investigation.
