What we’ll do when Buhari visits Rivers – APC youths


Youths of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State on Monday disclosed that they have compiled petitions which they would submit to President Muhammadu Buhari when he visits the state.

The Rivers youths under the umbrella of Buhari Campaign Organization, BCO, pointed out that their complaints if attended to by the president would improve the security situation in the state.

The youths also called on the President to direct the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to stop Governor Nyesom Wike from inaugurating the officials of the neighbourhood watch corps.

They said the formation of the security body was against the law.

Addressing newsmen in Port Harcourt, the state capital, the leader of the group, Chimidi Owhorji said that the group had compiled activities of the state government that were not in tandem with the 1999 Constitution (amended) to be handed to Buhari.

Owhorji said, “When the president visits the state, we will officially forward our petitions and complaints about the state to him.

“We know that when he comes he will take a closer assessment of the security structure in the state and to improve it.

“He loves the people of Rivers State that is why he has brought meaningful projects in the state. So, we are earnestly and anxiously waiting to receive you, Mr. President.

“Rivers people want to tell you thank you in a big way for appointing their sons and daughters into privileged position in your government.

“They are ready to host you in big ways to tell you how they are being maltreated by the man who is supposed to be the Chief Security Officer of the state.

“We are calling on the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, not to allow the state to inaugurate the Neighbourhood Watch Corps.

“He should do everything within his constitutional right to ensure that they do not operate.”
