Rivers calls on Buhari to caution Amaechi

Rivers State Government has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to call the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, to order.

The Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr. Austin Tam-George, in a statement he personally signed, alleged that ‎Amaechi was fuelling the prolonged crisis in the state.

Tam-George, who also faulted Amaechi’s statement during a recent interview on AIT where he (Amaechi) alleged that Mrs. Goodluck Jonathan and Governor Nyesom Wike brought cultism to Rivers State for election purposes, called on the people of Rivers State to be vigilant and to resist any attempt by Amaechi and APC to rig the legislative polls slated for March 19.

According to him, investigations by the Rivers State Police Command have shown again, that the killings witnessed in some areas of the state were as a result of retributive attacks launched by rival cult gangs battling for supremacy.

And in each case, Tam-George said the Rivers State Police Command working with the State Government, has made arrests, and obtained vital intelligence from gang leaders in custody. There is a prosecutorial process already underway for those implicated in these criminal activities.
