Rivers chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday reacted to a comment made by the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, that insecurity has heightened in the state.

Amaechi was said to have made the comment while performing the ground breaking ceremony of the foundation stone laying of the new secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Rivers State Council.

Responding, the PDP called on him to resign having failed in his oath of allegiance to protect lives and property of people as the chief security officer in the state.

In a statement by the State Chairman, Felix Obuah, the PDP commended Governor Amaechi for the confession, adding that he should complement his “inability” to discharge his responsibility by turning in his resignation letter.

The party regretted the governor’s continued “misappropriation and application of billions of State funds voted for security into All Progressives Congress (APC) sponsorship and only to turn around to blame his incapacitation on the PDP, the Police and perceived enemies”.

On the spate of criminal activities after the redeployment of Commissioner, Mbu Joseph Mbu, the PDP said “Governor Amaechi has at last admitted that he was the problem and not the former Police boss or the Federal Government as he was trying to impute.”

“May we also emphasise that the PDP cannot stay watching our dear state plunged into anarchy and the lives of our people reduced to a gambling object of politicking only for the insensitive and power drunk state governor to resort to new buck-passing as all he can offer in his security responsibility to the people.

“We’ll continue to hold Amaechi responsible for any security breach and breakdown of law and order, except he voluntarily resigns, having accepted his inability to remain in charge of the affairs of the state,” the party added.
