Resist dictatorship, Governor Wike calls on Nigerians

Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike

…Condemns alleged assault on NASS
As the nation anxiously gets set for the 2019 general elections, Rivers State Governor, Barr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has condemned what he described as the siege on the National Assembly by the security agencies.

The governor who spoke on Tuesday in Port Harcourt declared that the alleged assault on the National Assembly by Security Forces which he claimed to have been ordered by the APC Federal Government, was condemnable and had the capacity to truncate the nation’s democracy.

Governor Wike, therefore, urged Nigerians to rise up against the alleged growing dictatorship of the APC-led Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said: “All well meaning Nigerians should stand up against this dictatorship. All over the world, this has never happened. Nigerians should not stand aloof and watch what is going on. This will consume so many people if we don’t rise against it.”

The Rivers State Governor called on the National Assembly members to stand firm in defence of the nation’s democracy, saying that all the members of NASS should “resist that anti-democratic attempt and stand-up to defend our democracy.”

The governor berated his colleagues who were happy with the alleged anti-democratic plots of the APC Federal Government.

“Those governors happy with what is happening today should know that it will be their turn tomorrow. The same cabal will turn against these governors. This is condemnable and unacceptable to us. You must follow set down rules. You cannot talk about fighting corruption and refuse to respect the rule of law,” he stated.
