River crisis: We will occupy the streets of Abuja en masse if Wike is not brought to order – Ogoni warns Tinubu, IGP

The Ogonis under the aegis of Ogoni Development Drive (ODD) have threatened to occupy the streets of Abuja if President Bola Tinubu does not intervene in the crisis between the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, and the Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara.

The Ogonis claimed that they had uncovered a plan by Wike and the 27 Rivers lawmakers to continually increase political tension against Fubara.

Through a press statement by the Organizer of ODD, Comrade Solomon Lenu, the group informed the Inspector General of Police that if tensions persist in the state, they would mobilize people to occupy the streets of Abuja.

The group insisted that they would not allow Rivers State to be reduced to a theater of political war while Wike thrives in Abuja.

The statement reads: “We wish to inform the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Nigerian public that should they continue to create tensions that hinder peaceful governance, creating a false atmosphere of crisis and keeping investors away of our state, at the expense of our teeming youths in search of employment, ODD will massively mobilize the people of Rivers State to occupy the streets of Abuja.

“Rivers State cannot be reduced to a theater of political war while the minister thrives in Abuja.

“We, therefore, call on the Presidency to rein in Chief Wike so that we can create a peaceful atmosphere for governance in Rivers State as is the case in other states in Nigeria.
