Imo legislator Told To Keep Nose Off Rivers Politics

A call has been made by the Coalition for Good Governance in Rivers State to Ikenga Ugochinyere, a political leader in Imo State, to keep his distance from the state’s political activities and allow the people of Rivers to determine their own political destiny.

Yesterday, in the nation’s capital, Abuja, President Joe Samson and Secretary Aaron Igbijoh released a statement denouncing the lawmaker as a “meddlesome stranger” who needs to mind his own political business.

After conducting a thorough analysis of his words and deeds in relation to the Rivers State political crisis, the organization is speaking out against what it sees as his overt interference in the matter, which has raised a host of concerns and questions.

The group stressed that Rivers State’s interests are already being effectively represented in the National Assembly by a team of highly competent and experienced lawmakers who are well-equipped to handle any situation that may arise.

The organization’s statement categorically denied Ugochinyere’s claims of representing Rivers State, emphasizing that he has no legitimate stake or voice in the state’s matters..

According to the group, the lawmaker’s claim of leading 60 members of the House, known as G60 was false.

It urged the lawmaker to stop making disparaging comments about Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.

The statement reads: “His claim there are 60 members in his group, referred to as “G60,” is misleading… We confirmed the group has no more than seven members…

“Furthermore, his call for Rivers State to invoke sections of the criminal code and institute treason charges against the 23 council chairmen and their alleged sponsors and co-conspirators, betrays his ignorance and disregards the fact the Assembly has extended their tenure for six months and that the matter is at the Court of Appeal.

His involvement in another state’s affairs was viewed as an unwarranted encroachment, rendering him an uninvited busybody venturing into matters beyond his expertise and jurisdiction.
