Rivers Crisis: Dino Melaye Threatens Presidency With Egypt-Styled Revolution
Just as unconfirmed reports from Rivers State indicates that the Presidency has begun plans to launch a mass arrest campaign against the pro-Amaechi lawmakers who may have played a role in the ruckus that broke out at the Assembly Chambers and perhaps declare a segmented ‘state of emergency’ in the State – in an effort to weaken the political base of Governor Amaechi, civil rights group The Anti-Corruption Network has warned the Presidency to be prepared for full revolution similar to the Egyptian revolution.
In a release signed by the Executive Secretary of the group, Mr. Dino Melaye, titled, “Touch Amaechi, touch Nigeria” – the group chastised the President’s involvement in the unfolding crisis in Rivers State while warning that the life of the Governor of Rivers State remain in the hands of the Mr. President and his wife.
Although the reports of mass arrest and declaration of segmented state of emergency by the presidency is yet to be confirmed, the group in the press release said, “We will do everything within the confines of the law to protect our fragile democracy which the President or his wife does not know how we got it.”
“Touch Amaechi and touch Nigeria, The abuse of law and order by both the anti-Amaechi legislators and the Nigerian Police is not only disgraceful but will not be tolerated by the mass of the people in this country. The Presidency cannot absolve herself from this satanic manifestation. Who ordered the military withdrawal from Rivers state Government House?”
“What is going on in Rivers State is African magic. We leave Amaechi’s life in the hands of Mr. President and his wife. We give the IGP one week to remove the Commissioner of Police in Rivers state; failure to do so, we shall mobilize Nigerians like never before to occupy the Force HQ in Abuja. The President should get ready for the Egyptian treatment”.
“Usurps will not kill democracy. The battle to safeguard our democracy is a battle of no retreat, no surrender. President Jonathan is behaving as if he has no legacy intentions. Try us and see, I dare the Presidency, Enough is Enough.”
The group also asked the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar to act on the suspicious actions of the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Joseph Mbu in his role in the Rivers State crisis. “Failure to do so, we will mobilize to Force Headquarters in Abuja”
