Report By Campaign For Democracy South-East Region Publicity Arm
The Campaign for Democracy (CD) has urged the Police Service Commission (PSC) and Inspector-General of Police to immediately remove and demote the Rivers State Commissioner of Police (CP), Mbu Joseph Mbu for official misconduct and un-professionalism.
It would be recalled that CP Mbu recently withdrew the police details of the Rivers State House Of Assembly Speaker and that of the Chief Of Staff to the governor, Hon. Otelemaba Dan Amachree and Chief Tony Okocha respectively; thus exposing the duo to danger.
This was contained in a statement issued to the news media by CD on today.
The statement was signed by Dede Uzor A. Uzor, Chairman, CD South-East and South-South regions.
`` Withdrawal of security details of these top government functionaries is a continuation of the war by the Federal Government on Rivers State, which must be stopped”.
``It would be very sad if our hard earned democracy would be bastardized by the Federal Government just because it want to remove the governor at all cost, even through unconventional means”.
``The Federal Government-led President Goodluck Jonathan had not mustered the political-will to fight corruption as well as secure Nigerians from incessant killings; but to engage in a fight over a personal political interest”.
``With the on-going, and the recent withdrawal of the operating license of the state government-owned jet; it is clear that the Federal Government is aiming at declaring a state of emergency in Rivers State,’’ The statement said.
CD, further warned Mr President to stop harassing Rivers State political office holders with EFCC and other government agencies because of political differences.
The group also said that it is giving CP Mbu 48 hours to restore the security details, to safeguard the government officials concerned from political killing or kidnapping.
