Rivers Governors, Nyesom Wike has condemned the blockade of National Assembly by operatives of Department of State Services on Tuesday.
The governor, in a statement posted on his social media page expressed his opinions saying : “The assault on the National Assembly by security forces ordered by the APC Federal Government is condemnable and has the capacity to truncate the nation’s democracy.”
He therefore urged all well meaning Nigerians to ‘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.
He also called on all members of the National Assembly to resist :this 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 setdown rules. You cannot talk about fighting corruption and refuse to respect the rule of law.”
