Don’t Allow Power Drunk Politicians Push You Into Rivers Crisis – PDP Chieftain Warns Tinubu

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Board of Trustees, Adolphus Wabara, has warned President Bola Tinubu over alleged plans to declare a state of emergency in Rivers State.

Wabara cautioned Tinubu against allowing what he described as ‘power-drunk anti-democratic forces’ to hijack the oil rich state.

In a statement made available to the public on Friday, Wabara maintained that PDP will not allow the declaration of a state of emergency in Rivers State.

He added that any attempt to tamper with Fubara would lead to doom in Nigeria.

Wabara said: “There is nothing happening in the state that warrants the call for state of emergency as being demanded by these fake apostles of peace.

“I have keenly watched the political developments in Rivers State, and want to place it on record that PDP and the law abiding citizens of this country will not tolerate any attempt to derail democracy in the state.

“We won’t allow anti-democratic forces and insatiable elements hijack power through the back door in their desperation to hang on to power and hold the state to the jugular.

“Any attempt to scuttle the democratically elected PDP-led Government in Rivers is a recipe to a political unrest capable of consuming the entire country.

“I, therefore, call on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, not to allow greedy and self overrated power drunks to push him into taking steps that could portray him as a despot, and ultimately plunge the country into avoidable upheaval.”
