|APC Leadership Lies To President Buhari – Rivers SSG by ijaw1stson: 7:34pm On Apr 16, 2016|
According to Kenneth Kobani, Rivers state is not the deadliest state.
Kenneth Kobani, the secretary to Rivers state government, has spoken against the assertion that Rivers has become the country’s most violent state.
He also noted that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state continues to lie to President Muhammadu Buhari.
In the interview granted to Vanguard, Kobani listed tragic incidents that happened in other Nigerian states.
“You know I respect Mr. President very well. We must respect the president. If he is not given the right and proper advice then it is likely, he will make statements that will not be entirely true. Rivers state is not the deadliest state, it is certainly not. About 500 people were killed in Agatu, Benue state. I don’t think we had that number of casualties in Rivers State. You heard of Abia where they beheaded people. Kidnapping is reported in Lagos, Imo, and virtually all parts of the country. Look at the sad incident in Kaduna involving an army colonel, who was kidnapped and killed.
“Unfortunately, the APC leadership in the state continue to lie to Mr. President, and I think the president need to be very conscious of these type of characters because they have a long track of misleading people,” he said
Expressing support for Nyesom Wike, Kobani noted that the governor was doing everything to redress the challenges of insecurity in the state. He added that most of the problems were inherited.
“We inherited multiple communal crisis encouraged by politicians from the other divide. When we came into office, we made sure we dealt with the problem of cultism that is a challenge in most parts of the state.
“In Ogoni area, we have resolved the situation in Bomu community. The bad boys have all dumped cultism. Between Dege and Webiera communities is also another long-standing problem. We are trying to bring those communities together. We are resolving boundary disputes that are behind some security challenges already,” he said.
Speaking about the rerun elections in Rivers state, Kobani alleged that military intervention and alleged inclusion of fake materials among the ones brought by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) resulted in suspension of the election in some local government areas in Ogoni.
