The governorship candidate of Action Alliance (AA) in Rivers State, Dr. Dawari George, has decried “toxic communications” and perennial flooding in the state, warning that they destroy the fabrics of the state.

George, an ally of former Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, recently dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) for AA. He expressed worries that youths were watching politicians indulge in baleful words, which,  he noted, would affect their thoughts and actions in future. 

Dawari, who stated this in Port Harcourt, yesterday, during a chat with newsmen, urged politicians to desist from abusing people, who criticise them, describing the act as unfortunate and evil. 

He said: “Something has gone wrong in the state. The communications are too toxic, too bitter and evil and unfortunately, the younger generation is beginning to take this as the norm. This is a major concern.  We are destroying the fabric of the society.” 

He also decried flooding in the state, describing it as a big challenge that requires urgent attention.  Dawari, who said he was not desperate to become a governor, said he left APC because he felt he was no longer productive and lacked space to explore his potential.

“As an individual, I am wired for service and I have been in APC and I felt that I was no longer productive. The productivity I am talking about has to do with my intellect, service, deployment of my endowment.  God has worked on me and given me exposure over the years but I had no place to deploy it, that’s why I left APC,” he explained.
