NASS blockade: Nigerians must rise against dictatorship – Gov. Wike reacts



Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers State, has condemned the siege to the National Assembly by a combined team of security operatives.

Wike called on Nigerian to rise against what he termed the growing dictatorship of the All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government.

In a statement issued on Tuesday by his media aide, Simeon Nwakaudu, the Governor said the siege has the capacity of truncating Nigeria’s democracy.

Wike said, “All well meaning Nigerians should stand up against this dictatorship. All over the world this has never happened.

“Nigerians should not stand aloof and watch what is going on. This will consume so many people if we don’t rise against it.

“All members of the National Assembly should resist that anti-democratic attempt and stand-up to defend our democracy.

“Those governors happy with what is happening today should know that it will be their turn tomorrow. The same cabal will turn against these governors.

“This is condemnable and unacceptable to us. You must follow set down rules. You cannot talk about fighting corruption and refuse to respect the rule of law. ”
