Rivers Not Part Of Agitation For Secession Says Wike
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared that the state is not part of any agitation for secession in the country.
He, however, stated that unless Nigerians experience good governance at the federal level, agitations would continue across different parts of the country.
Wike spoke yesterday at a special church service at Saint Mark’s Anglican Church, Rumuomasi, Port Harcourt to mark the country’s 57th Independence anniversary.
He said: "In as much as you continue to have bad governance, people will continue to agitate across the country.
"We give God the glory that we are still one, despite the agitations and challenges. God has blessed this country. We are not part of those who want to secede. Rivers State will never be part of that."
The governor, however, pointed out that the country cannot continue with the current level of impunity and injustice, saying that it was time for the right thing to be done.
He said: "People must speak out that what is going on is not correct.chevron.comyohaig.ng</a> Under this dispensation, votes no longer count.
