Rivers Crisis, Presidency’s Agenda for 2015 – APC


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the presidency of using Rivers State as a testing ground for creeping fascism ahead of the 2015 elections.
The party warned that it may be only a matter of time before the entire country would have been engulfed in the blossoming impunity.
In a statement Sunday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party decried the worsening impunity and the violation of constitutional provisions, including the freedom of association and freedom of movement, in the state against those perceived to be against the President.
The statement read partly: “While we may think this madness is restricted only to Rivers State, the danger is that if those behind the Rivers crisis can get away with their impunity, what prevents them from extending it to other states? What will be the implication for the 2015 elections if some men take charge of all states?
“These are the questions that should agitate the minds of all Nigerians as the Rivers crisis continues unabated. When the resolutions of the National Assembly, where the true representatives of the people hold sway, are no longer worth the paper on which they are written, something is definitely wrong.”
