The Rivers State Government says there are plans by certain individuals to cause crisis that will lead to the declaration of a State of Emergency in the State.
The State government alleged that the planners of the crisis are Rivers politicians resident in Abuja.
Commissioner for Information and Communications in the State, Paulinus Nsirim raised the alarm in a statement on Tuesday.
Nsirim stated that the characters behind the plot were the same persons whose alleged plan, “to declare a State of Emergency in the State since 2015 has not succeeded because of God’s intervention.”
Nsirim noted that the individuals want to use the Covid-19 to create panic in the state to persuade the FG to declare emergency rule in the state.
