Rivers crisis: Call for emergency regulations quickly fades away – APC Chief Eze


A leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has said Tony Okocha’s statement on declaring a state of emergency in Rivers State was nonsensical from the start.

Recall that Okocha, at a media roundtable, had called on President Bola Tinubu to declare a state of emergency over the political crisis in Rivers State.

Reacting in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday, Eze slammed Okocha, saying he has no authority to speak on behalf of Rivers APC in any capacity.

He said all opinions expressed by the political operatives were his personal views or representative of the interests he represents and should not be seen as collective pronouncements of ardent supporters of political parties in Rivers State.

Eze refuted the call for declaring a state of emergency in Rivers State, saying the call was intended by the Federal Capital Territory Minister to create an unhealthy and crisis environment in the state and use cronies like Tony Okocha to further his agenda.

He called on the President and Nigerians to ignore the overtures of Okocha and his associates, whose motives he claims are in sharp contrast to the administration policies of Tinubu and Governor Siminarai Hubara, who are committed to realigning Rivers onto the path of progress.
