APC chieftain warns Tinubu against taking side in Rivers, Ondo imbriogno

Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Yekini Nabena has cautioned President Bola Tinubu against siding or dabbling into the political crisis in Rivers and Ondo states.

There has been an unending political imbriogno between former governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike and the incumbent governor, Siminalayi Fubara and the governor of Ondo State, RotimiAkeredolu and his deputy governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

Responding to the crisis, Nabena cautioned that the President, as a father of the nation, must not play politics in the two states.

In a statement he issued in Abuja and made available to newsmen on Wednesday, the APC chieftain said that the President and the ruling APC must respect the constitution of Nigeria in respect to Ondo and Rivers States.

The Bayelsa born APC chieftain further noted that; “President Tinubu who believe in the political or social equality of all people and practice the principle of equality of rights must not play politics with River and Ondo States.”

“The constitution of our nation must be recognised and respected at this time in Rivers and Ondo states. The APC should also look into the party constitution carefully, bearing in mind that the National Working Committee (NWC) of our party does not have powers to dissolve an elected chairman and his executive in Rivers.

“We are democrats and not dictators in APC, so we should be mindful of our actions. The implications of this action in River state might be dangerous for our party in the near future if the right thing is not done quickly now, if not, what happened before in 2019 will happen again with litigations here and there,” Nabena warned.
