Don’t take others along on your suicide mission, Rivers APC tells Wike

According to Vanguard: The Rivers State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has condemned the directive by the governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike to PDP members to resist illegal arrests before and during the forthcoming rerun elections in the State as it also tells him not to take others along on his suicide mission.

The APC in a statement signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Senibo Chris Finebone, advised Rivers people to discontinued such inciting directive by the governor as it is capable of pitching law enforcement agents against innocent citizens of Rivers State.

“The APC wishes to advise Rivers people irrespective of political affiliations to act within the law before, during and after the March 19 re-run elections in Rivers State.

This appeal has become necessary at this time with the backdrop of the highly troubling, inciting and unlawful directive by Gov. Nyesom Wike to PDP members to resist unlawful arrest by security agents,” the statement said.

He said: “Indeed, it raises several questions. Did Gov. Nyesom Wike properly explain to his party members how to differentiate between legal and illegal arrests? As a lawyer, does the governor know that reasonable and lawful response to arrest [whether legal or illegal] is not to resist it which is in itself unlawful? Did Gov. Wike explain to his supporters the different dimensions and scenarios that resistance to arrest can result to?”

“The APC continues to be concerned at the desperation of Gov. Nyesom Wike for political power even when his methods portend danger to lives and property of the innocent and hapless. As a political party, the interest of the APC remains the safety and wellbeing of the citizenry irrespective of party affiliations. We believe that a state governor should sometimes drop the partisan toga and assume the more honourable task of safeguarding the lives and property of the generality of the people.
