Chief Ikanya Congratulates Hon. Ojukaye Flag-Amachree and His Team

 …..Describes Him as the Divine Tool to Unseat Gov. Wike

HON OJUKAYE FLAG-AMACHREE RS APC CHAIRMAN WITH OTHER SWC MEMEERS SWEARING IN CEREMONY 0012The immediate past Rivers State All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman – Chief (Dr) Ibiamu Davies Ikanya who relinquished his office on 21st May, 2018 before the commencement of the State Congresses of the party to pave way for the formal election of Hon. Ojukaye Flag-Amachree as the new Rivers State helmsman has described the event that led to the election of Hon. Ojukaye as a turning point not only in APC but in Rivers State as a whole.

Chief (Dr) Ibiamu Davies Ikanya who congratulated the new Chairman, described him as the divine tool in God’s Hands to restore hope to the people of Rivers State after the traumatic and wasted four years of the devilish regime of Governor Nyesome Wike.

“Having observed and worked with Ojukaye for quite some years, I am convinced that he will bring the needed energy, dynamism, vigour,  sagacity and vision to bear on our collective struggle to make Rivers State the desired and destination State as envisioned by the founding fathers of the State” Ikanya said.

Dr Ikanya who took time to commend and thank the party’s leader in the South -South region, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi the Minister of Transportation, Dr Dakuku Peterside the DG NIMASA, other party leaders and members for granting him the opportunity to serve the State in this capacity for the past four years and reassured all the party faithful of his unalloyed loyalty and push to enable the party achieve our common goal in Rivers State.

The erstwhile party boss described Amaechi as a true democrat who is ahead of his time, a true Lion and hero whose political sagacity and wisdom saw us through this period of turbulent, unpredictable and unprecedented political challenges. His inputs during this period of our political history have exposed him as a leader in the mould of Zik ,Awo, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Sir Ahamdu Bello and of course Aminu Kano. If he continues in this zeal and sagacity, I am convinced that his services will restore hope to our nation.

He urged all members of the party to unite under the great leadership of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi so that collectively we can reclaim the Brick House come 2019. He urges Ojukaye to build a more vibrant, cohesive and united party that will restore hope to Rivers State people.

Dr Ikanya vilified Governor Wike for claiming that the Federal Government is plotting to assassinate him, describing the claim as not only “baseless, childish but a claim coming from a very decayed and diseased mind that needs our collective prayers.”

“Wike I must state is suffering from hallucination based on the torture he receives from the ghosts of those APC members he engineered their killings and fearing that these ghosts may revenge their killings but linking his unstable mind and sad situation to the Federal government is an act that is regrettable” Dr Ikanya said.

He counselled Governor Wike to pipe down and renegotiate his exist peacefully and avoid further tarnishing of the good image of Rivers State and her people.

On the other hand, the new Rivers State APC Chairman, Hon. Ojukaye Flag-Amachree desrcibed his predecessor, Dr Davies Ibimau Ikanya as a trailblazer whose inputs at the formation and sustainability of APC in Rivers State is a great challenge to him but assured all and sundry that he will not only improve on some of the feats of Dr Ikanya but will make the taking over of the Brick House come 2019 a reality unfailingly. He thanked God, the Leader of the party in the South-South, Rt. Hon. chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the delegates for granting him and his Team this opportunity to contribute their own quota towards building a virile, vibrant and great party that all Nigerians will be proud of.

APC Secretariat Vandalization: Facts Finding Committee’s Report Finds Abe, supporters culpable

Posted on May 11, 2018. Filed under: Press Release |

*Describes act as an attempt to Violently Derail Internal Democracy

Abe and WikeRivers State All Progressives Congress (APC)  has described as unfortunate, condemnable and unacceptable the vandalization of her Secretariat by party members loyal to Senator Magnus Abe one of the party’s chieftains.

The party in a statement made available to journalist in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on 10th May, 2018 by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, the Media Consultant to Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, the State Chairman of Rivers APC  noted with sadness that certain party members for no justifiable reasons vandalised the party’s State Secretariat in such a manner that makes both the State Chairman and members of the State working Committee (SWC) operate under the harsh weather within the secretariat instead of their offices.

Chief Eze explained that Rivers State APC immediately after the vandalisation of her secretariat set up a three-man Stock-Taking Committee, comprising of Barr Amachree the Administrative Secretary of the party as Chairman with Chief Emeka Bekee the party’s Secretary as Secretary of the committee and Pastor Mason West (IB), PA to Dr Ikanya as a member to ascertain the level of damage and suggest how to curtail such unruly behaviour among party members in future. The committee is also expected to investigate and assist the security agencies to ascertain those behind this heinous act.

Continuing, the statement noted that, “the indictment of Senator Magnus Abe and his supporters according to the preliminary Report of the committee was based on the careful study of the events during the occupation of the State Secretariat by party members loyal to Senator Abe and confession made by some of his supporters in Police custody. The committee states that it is foolhardy to deny the fact that Abe’s supporters vandalised the Secretariat as an attempt to derail internal democracy and disrupt the Ward Congresses of the party as their actions suggest that they don’t want the Congresses to hold in the first place.”

The statement reads in part: The Committee further suggested that the threatening and instigating utterances of Prince Peter Odike the State APC Vice Chairman and the party Youth Leader while addressing Abe’s supporters on that fateful day prepared the ground for the unfortunate vandalization of the State Secretariat. 

The committee’s report also stated that Abe’s statement that he shares the same view with those that gathered at the State Secretariat gives strength to the committee’s findings. 

Throwing more light on this heinous act of attempting to denial internal democracy during the Congresses, Senator Andrew Uchendu stated thus, “Supporters of Senator Magnus Abe invaded the Rivers APC Secretariat before the sales of forms and arrival of the Ward and LGA Congresses Committee from APC National Secretariat in Abuja, just to make sure that elections will not hold.” 

On the vandalization of her Secretariat, the party quoted, Chief Victor Giadom the National Asst Secretary as saying that, the action of the hoodlums that vandalised Rivers State secretariat of APC in Port Harcourt was unnecessary, highly regrettable and it was the height of desperation by Abe and his supporters. We are all from Rivers State and we know the thugs who were at APC secretariat last Friday. The representative of Ikwerre/Emohua in the House of Representatives, Chidi Wihioka, who was arrested on the scene of the destruction, is also a supporter of Abe. 

On the issue of no Congresses election in Rivers State, the party asks that if there was no Ward Congresses election in Rivers State as Senator Abe and others are claiming,  what was Prince Peter Odike the APC Vice Chairman doing at his ward on that fateful day to warrant Senator Abe to have thundered,  “I was ashamed when I heard the State Vice Chairman of the APC, Chief Peter Odike,  who is loyal to me being embarrassed and chased out of the congress venue in his Ward yesterday”? 

The party maintained that from the various picture footages and videos showing that there was election in Rivers State, it sounds ridiculous for any party member to state otherwise. Affirming this, Chief Victor Giadom the National Asst Secretary of APC stated thus, “I was in Bera (Abe’s village) on Saturday and the ward congress was peacefully and orderly conducted, just as it happened in all 23 LGAs. 

While to the Chairman of the Ward Congress Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Mr. Joseph Dago, “Based on what I said, there was election. I don’t know where there is a contradiction between an allegation and a fact. If there is an allegation and a fact, I don’t know how contradictory it is. From the report that was documented, including the one from the distinguished senator’s ward, we will make available to the press documented evidence that even in his ward, there was election. So, the issue of a contradiction does not even arise because you cannot be talking about contradiction when there is an allegation and a fact.” 

The party maintained that with all these facts, it becomes mischievous and wicked for any party member to continue to portray the party in bad light.  

Dr Ikanya the Rivers State APC Chairman wept profusely while receiving the preliminary report and stated that he can’t understand how and why people who have sacrificed so much in building the party could resort to acts capable of derailing and sabotaging the ideals and vision of the party in the State just because of struggle for power. 

The State Chairman urged the committee to conclude her report and suggest possible means of how to unite the party chieftains that aided this criminal act against the party and proffer suggestions on how to prevent such act in future. 

Dr Ikanya further stated that, “politics is not a do or die venture but means through which we submit ourselves for services to humanity and not means to disparage or destroy ourselves”

“The party notes with sadness that a Congress affirmed to be peaceful, credible and organised in the best democratic practices by both the Dago led national Committee and Independent Observers could be described by some party officials and members as “no election”. The party therefore warned all those who have continued to present the party in bad light before the public to cease as the party has relevant portions of her constitution to deal with such group of people no matter how highly placed they may be.” 

Finally, the party urges those going for the Local Government Congresses to peacefully conduct themselves to demonstrate to the PDP government in Rivers State that their time is up.

“Physician, Heal Thyself, APC Congresses Will Be Peaceful” – APC Tells Wike

Posted on May 4, 2018. Filed under: Press Release |

“Physician, Heal Thyself, APC Congresses Will Be Peaceful” – APC Tells Wike

The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, said she finds it disgustingly hypocritical for Gov. Nyesom Wike to extend an advice on peaceful conduct of congresses to the APC while the dust generated by massive violence and mayhem that characterized the recent PDP local government primaries across Rivers State is yet to settle.

The APC in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Chris Finebone said, “We believe that the unsolicited advice by governor Wike is a script from his dubious and irresponsible politics to divert attention from the massive criticism of the unbridled violence, killing and destruction of property during the PDP primaries by well-meaning Rivers people and Nigerians.”

The statement reads in part: “It would have been far more important if Gov. Wike had preached peaceful primaries to his party men and women. It would have been quite needful if the governor walked the talk by not planting the seed of imposition, discord and deceit in his party which eventually led to the kind of unprecedented violence that marred their primaries. That surely would have been a more practical means of preaching peaceful congresses. 

“The APC believed that Gov. Wike is jittery that at the end of its congresses, peace-loving Rivers people will have the opportunity to compare the activities of PDP and APC. The governor fears that Rivers people will so easily confirm that PDP members as those responsible for the political violence in Rivers State against the peaceful disposition of the APC. It is this fear that has propelled Gov. Wike to embark on offering his tainted advice. We say to him, “Physician, heal thyself.”

World Press Freedom: Day Rivers PDP Chairman, Bro Obuah Felicitates With Media Practitioners

Posted on May 4, 2018. Filed under: Press Release |

…Harps On Development Journalism, Reporting Real Leaders

As media practitioners across the globe mark the World Press Freedom Day, the Rivers State chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bro Felix Obuah says the Nigerian Press deserves a pat on the back for its courage and resilience against the background of economic hardship and merge salaries for its practitioners.

The State PDP chairman noted that despite observable weaknesses, the Nigerian State still owes the press a lot for its role in nation building, stressing that democratic governance in the country would have been a nullity without the contributions of the press.

Bro Obuah, however, regretted that some sections of the Nigerian Press are yet to grow beyond mere information mercenaries for government officials and certain interest groups while others remain comfortable in the realm of pettiness.

According to the State PDP boss, the era of deadpan reporting has long given way for development based Journalism whereby real development projects and people-oriented leaders should be adequately reported to encourage the citizenry on their civic responsibilities.

Bro Obuah said if the press should live up to this responsibility, leaders like the State Governor, Chief Barr Nyesom Wike should be on the front burner of media reports because of his unrivalled developmental projects vis-à-vis his counterparts across the nation.

He said though the media have done appreciably well in acknowledging and recognizing Gov Wike for his numerous landmark achievements through awards of excellence, there is still need to give publicity to his rural developmental projects much more than is the case presently.

“While I congratulate and identify with you on the occasion of your World Press Freedom Day, I hope you will do better by reporting  those who are genuinely diligent in their duties and prudent in management of resources entrusted to them like the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike. Happy World Press Freedom Day celebration,” Bro Obuah declared.

Signed:

Jerry Needam,

Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to

Bro. Felix Obuah, Chairman of PDP,

Rivers State.

Re: Stop fighting Oshiomhole, youths tell Amaechi – Rivers APC Reacts

Posted on April 25, 2018. Filed under: Press Release |

Re: Stop fighting Oshiomhole, youths tell Amaechi – Rivers APC Reacts

Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) expressed dismay after reading the malicious and mischievous report titled, “Stop fighting Oshiomhole, youths tell Amaechi” in some National dailies of today and resolved that it has become imperative to set the record straight as the State chapter of the party doesn’t need any soothsayer to tell her that the report was a mere tool of blackmail aimed at maligning the person and personality of Rt.  Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi the erstwhile Governor of Rivers State, the incumbent Minister of Transportation and the undisputable leader of APC in South -South.

The party in her reaction stated that it is erroneous to report that Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is fighting the erstwhile Governor of Edo State,  Comrade Adams oshiomhole as such a fight only exist in the minds of those promoting this falsehood as Amaechi is neither fighting Comrade Adams Oahiomhole or any other leader of the All Progressives Congress or is he holding or ever had any meeting in connection to who occupies the National Chairman of the party or any other position of the yet to be elected members of the National Working Committee of the party.

The party described Amaechi as a detribalised Nigerian and a respected democrat whose goals and inputs in the enhancement of democratic principles in Nigeria are not in doubt so labelling him with a borrowed robe is to us an exercise in futility.

The party further stated that at the time the Edo meeting was held the Honourable Minister was at Washington, USA on office national assignment and couldn’t have held any meeting he is being credited to in this regard.

With these facts, we view this report as a sponsored report to malign the person and personality of the Honourable Minister of Transportation and the leader of APC in the South -South.

Therefore we wish to describe this blackmail and unwarranted attack against a person who sacrificed both his life and resources to entrench APC as a political party in the hearts of Nigerians as most unfortunate, wicked, vindictive, vicious, malicious, despicable, ridiculous and unacceptable.

The APC in a statement issued to journalists today by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze Media Consultant to Dr Ikanya the RS APC Chairman, noted with happiness that the youths whose names were mentioned in the callous report have already denied the report so those that cajoled and concocted such a misguided report should hide their faces in shame.

The statement reads: To the best of the knowledge of greater members of the party that both Amaechi and Oshiomhole are best of friends and comrades in ensuring that President Muhammadu Buhari wins the 2019 Presidential election so these failed politicians looking for cheap publicity and how to sow seed of discord amongst these two brothers should look for a better job to do as their evil plots against an innocent man have failed even before it was hatched. 

Finally, the party noted that as much as the party is not against the aspiration of anybody to any position within the party, members must endeavour to avoid the undemocratic acts that led to the downfall of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  by ensuring that we follow strictly the tenets of democracy and the constitution of our party in pursuance of our aspirations. 

The party maintained that the endorsement of any political leader to any position must follow the due Process and reflects the views and positions of the leaders of the party in the six States that make up the South -South region.   

In the same vein, the party emphasised that any political process that closes the door against the aspiration of other members of the party from our zone can’t be said to be in tandem with the constitution of our great political party.

Oyegun has done well- South-South leaders

Posted on April 25, 2018. Filed under: Press Release |

…..Praise Buhari, APC Govs, others for supporting Oyegun

The prospect of Chief John Odigie-Oyegun retaining his job after June 14, 2018 is seen as having more resonance now.

South-South leaders on Friday threw their weight behind Oyegun for building APC, advancing progressive ideas, supporting the government and championing the rights of members.

“We agreed to task Oyegun with the job of managing the All Progressives Congress (APC) till 2022” the leaders said.

At a meeting to chalk out the position of the zone on the APC National Chairmanship Seat, the leaders praised Oyegun for keeping the ruling party in shape, treating everyone with fairness and strengthening the grassroots.

“Oyegun is an asset to Nigeria. He is a few steps ahead of other leaders. The ruling party is growing stronger and increasing in number” the leaders said.

Chairman South-South Front (SSF), Chief John Harry in a statement released in Yenagoa after the meeting said the South-South leaders decided that Oyegun should continue as chairman of the ruling party because of his sterling performance.

The leaders termed the 2019 presidential election as very critical and one that will have far reaching impact, citing Oyegun’s impeccable reputation, leadership skills and fairness.

“The way forward for the ruling party is to retain Oyegun through consensus” the leaders said.

Specifically, they praised Oyegun for promoting democracy, particularly protecting and broadening the rights of members to real political participation, contributing to the unity and growth of the ruling party.

The leaders hailed Oyegun as a true leader of democracy.

“Oyegun deserves credit for promoting democratic priorities, addressing challenging issues facing APC, protecting the interests of the Nigerian people and improving the standing of the ruling party.

They commended President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, APC National Leader, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, APC governors, Chief Bisi Akande, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, party chairmen and others for supporting Oyegun.

“We are on track. The process of retaining Oyegun till 2022 is expected to be a formality” the leaders said.

They also contested the views of Isaac Kekemeke, Perekeme Kpodo and Timi Frank on the performance of Oyegun.

“Oyegun has demonstrated how to overcome the challenges confronting the ruling party in the country.”

The leaders emphasized those aspects of Oyegun’s contribution which laid stress on internal democracy, unity, expansion, fairness and respect.

They also described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a disaster.

“What do you want Oyegun to learn from PDP”. The party’s fortunes have plummeted. The opposition party is in disarray. It cannot heal itself. The party is hated by Nigerians for entrenching poverty, unemployment, corruption, insecurity and deprivation. The party has been shown the way out of government at the national level and will never return to power again” the leaders said.

I solicit your support to elevate Osun State to the stage of envy

Posted on April 25, 2018. Filed under: Press Release |

Being Elder George Adedeji’s Letter of Intent to Serve the People of Osun State as Governor

Dear Esteemed Stakeholders of the State of Osun,

We return all the Glory to God, the Author of life for the peace and tranquility of Osun, which otherwise would not have been possible without God’s mercy. My name is George Tunde Adedeji, popularly known as ELDER. I was born into the family of late Pa Samuel Adebayo Adedeji in Gbongan, Ayedade Local Government some three scores ago.

The zeal and urge to make their children acquire education was why my parents educated me within and outside the shores of Nigeria. I read Food Science & Technology, at the University of Ife, now Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU).  I later proceeded to University of Strathclyde, Glasglow, Scotland for my Masters (Food Science and Microbiology).

My desire to be well grounded in the business and economic world made me to pursue a Masters in Business Administration (MBA). My belief in excellence and achievement orientation made me to become a member of various professional associations like; The Institute of Marketing UK, Member of the Nigerian – American Chamber of Commerce, Member, Nigerian – British Chamber of Commerce and Lagos Chamber of Commerce, where I featured prominently as a member of the Small and Medium Business Committee (SBMC).These platforms prepared and sharpened my innate talent to solving problems in diverse ways especially those that are societal in nature.

To fulfill my spiritual calling and the need to be God fearing informed my decision to pursue further knowledge via theological training. This move availed me the opportunity to have practical knowledge about the other religions, an opportunity which made me to flow freely with people of all creeds and believe system irrespective of gender, value system and orientation.

Furthermore, my urge to socialize and discover the needs of people and strategies to resolve issue whether economic, political or social endeared me to various social platforms like Rotary International. I was President, Rotary International District 9110 from 1989 – 1990. Also, Paul Harris Fellow (1990), District Governor’s Group Representative (1990 – 1993).

For a decade and half, I variously acquired managerial and leadership industry experience in two major organizations Viz; FDA (NAFDAC), UNILEVER. 

Corporate Governance Experience

Thereafter, I have played and still playing leadership role in Corporate Governance as chairman in six and Director in five notable entities viz; Executive Chairman, Super Stores Ltd; 1984 – Date; Scaf Ltd 1980 – Date; Tronitek Ltd 1991 – Date; SAE Nigeria Ltd, 1992 – 1998; Director Ayedaade Community Bank 1996 – 2001; Chairman, Askar Paints Nig Ltd. (OoduaGroup of Companies) 1990 – 2001; Chairman Wrought Iron Nigeria (WIN) Ltd (Oodua Group of Companies) 2002 – 2004; Country Director, Omega Renewable Energy and Power Nigeria Ltd (OREP – a subsidiary of Power Group USA) 2000 – Date. I am currently a Director in Skyrun (Cocoa Processing Industry) Ede.

Elder Tunde Adedeji represented the State as a member of the Technical Committee on Regional Integration of Western Nigeria. He also served on the board of Osun State Agricultural Development Corporation. 

Political Associations

My philosophy of life which specifies that “man does not live by bread alone” made me to choose the camp of the progressives. All along the lines of Alliance for Democracy (AD), Action Congress (AC), Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and presently All Progressives Congress (APC) where I am one of the leaders in Ayedade Local Government.

My vintage position as chairman, Askar Paints Ltd, Chairman Wrought Iron Nigeria LTD (WIN), two of the subsidiaries of Oodua Investments Group, and presently a Nigerian director, in Skyrun Ltd (Cocoa Processing Industry Ede) gave me the exposure on how to harness our abundant God-given resources and resourcefulness of our people to create value, if given executive power.

My dear stakeholders, I make bold to say that I have been part of successive administration in Osun, though not in executive capacity. Therefore, I give thumbs up to the previous helmsmen particularly, former and incumbent governors of All-Progressive extraction for their immense contributions to the development of our dear State – Alhaji Isiaka Adeleke, Baba AbdulRahmon Adebisi Akande, Prince Olagunsoye  Oyinlola and Gov. Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji  Aregbesola; the man whose developmental stride has clearly demonstrated his professional calling.

My fellow citizens, having garnered experiences in private and governmental agencies, I have decided to bring to bear the flourishing and unending exposure I have acquired over the years to serve my people of the Osun. I feel there is no better time to contribute at a higher pedestal to the development of Osun than 2018.

In view of the foregoing, I have embarked on intensive consultations across the state and the acceptability coefficient has been alarmingly overwhelming and impressive. I have also done extensive research on harnessing the huge resources of our State to increase our capacity, shore up our revenue, fill the huge infrastructural gap including grassroots agricultural potentials and poverty alleviation through massive investment in Agriculture, Agro industry, and Agribusiness as a way of building on the achievements of past and serving administrations in the State. This is in addition to equitable andfair wealth distribution.

My dear good people, if given the mandate to serve you, I intend to lead an all-inclusive government, bridge the gap between the rich and poor; provide developmental initiatives that are sustainable andbeneficial to our people. I will particularly encourage the womenfolk by reserving 40% of appointment for our women.

I am committed to building a state where there will be economic buoyancy, a hub of modern development and a haven of investors and bee-hive of business investments and employment generation activities and above all, a place of peaceful co-habitation and brotherly love. Your hallowed support is very crucial in making this vision a reality.

May I humbly solicit your support very passionately in this vision to elevate our State to the next millennial stage of envy, equity and justice, economic liberation, financial empowerment and above all the fear of God.

Please give me your support that will help us all to steer the ship of Osun State unto the harbour of greatness. 

Below are my contacts for advice, suggestions and support demonstrations.

Rivers Soot Menace: APC Knocks Wike for Accusing Federal Government

Posted on April 20, 2018. Filed under: Press Release |

..Says Wike is the main destructive machine decimating Rivers State and her people

DR IKANYA IBIAMU DAVIES THE APC RS INTERIM CHAIRMANRivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has described as most unfortunate, despicable and disheartening that Governor Nyesom Ezebunwo Wike of Rivers State could use the visit of a delegation of an international body like the United Nations (UN) to degenerate and lampoon the APC led Federal Government as being behind the black soot currently ravaging the State.

The party said by this act, Wike has exposed himself as an unpatriotic, despicable, ignorant character and unfit to occupy the exalted office of the Governor of a high class State like Rivers State.

The party in a statement issued by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, the Media Consultant to Chief Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, the Rivers State APC Chairman on Friday stated that Gov. Wike has not ceased to use any forum to expose his unpatriotic mind and hatred for the APC led Federal Government just because the party truncated the ambitious plot of his party – the PDP to continue to loot their common patrimony with impunity for the next fifty years.

The accusation by Wike that, “if we must move on, we must situate the cause of the soot and the fact that the Federal Government has decided to make sure that a greater percentage of the state dies” exposes Wike as an ignorant leader who have refused to study, cooperate and assist the relevant government agencies to tackle the menace that the soot posses to the health of Nigerians residing in Rivers State just because of his selfishness and personal aggrandizement.

By accusing the Federal Government under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari of such unfounded heinous act knowing very well that we as a political party have with other stakeholders cried and pleaded for the Rivers State Government to converge a stakeholders’ meeting for us to deliberate and find a way out of this mess but to no avail. The party notes with sadness that all our efforts to draw Wike’s attention on how to tackle this menace failed on deaf ears instead he (Wike) was busy dancing macabre dance with the lives of Rivers State people”, Chief Eze said.

The party expressed gratitude that the position of the Federal Government on the causes of the black soot presently being experienced in Port Harcourt and environs is because of the activities of illegal oil refiners, bunkers and burning of tyres by most of the over 100 abattoirs operating in the State” tallies with our position as we have on several fora maintained that contrary to the accusation by Wike that the black soot is not caused by any Federal Government Agency but by the activities of illegal oil refineries and bunkering of which Wike and most of his cohorts are key sponsors.

The party maintained that if any group is behind the unfortunate state of Rivers State as regards of attempting to decimate the lives of Rivers State people through the use of the menace of soot then Wike,  his government and cohorts sponsoring illegal oil refineries in the State should be held responsible.

The party reassured the Rivers State people not minding the frustration the security agencies are facing to eliminate the activities of the illegal refineries and bunkering, “we will intensify efforts to assist the relevant agencies to find solution to this menace.”
