Kogi crisis: Wada cautions against breaching the peace
Kogi State Governor, Captain Idris Wada has warn residents of the state especially politicians to guard against acts capable of breaching the peace of the state.
In particular, the governor cautioned the leadership of All Peoples Congress (APC) in the state to show more restraints and control over their members so as not to plunge the state into an orgy of violence.
The governor’s warning is sequel to the fracas that broke out in the national secretariat of APC in Abuja and what he described as the “desperation to subvert the law and impose an unpopular candidate, on the people as replacement for the late Alhaji Audu”, according to a statement issued yesterday by his Chief Communications Manager, Mr. Phrank Shaibu.
He claimed that the activities of the party were already threatening the relative peace in the state and that there was need for all stakeholders to ensure that the peace was not breached.
The statement disclosed that there were disturbing security reports that certain persons want to cause a breach of the peace in the state by replicating the violence that occurred some days ago at the National Secretariat of the APC in Kogi, but cautioned that anyone found wanting irrespective of political leanings, would be dealt with.
I am appealing to all political parties not to breach the peace by contemplating a semblance of that show of shame in any part of Kogi State. Security reports show that certain persons are planning to disturb the peace and we must not give them the opportunity to do so. This administration has a responsibility to ensure a peaceful atmosphere that guarantees freedom of movement.
“As a government, we have worked with the citizenry to make history in our state. We believe firmly in the resilient power of the people to determine what is best for them. Over the past three years, we have worked hard to make this possible and as always we are confident of their support for us”, the governor added.
