Published

on

Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State has dismissed comments by the former state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Joseph Mbu, who described himself as a lion that tamed the governor in Port Harcourt.

Mbu, who was recently promoted Assistant Inspector-General of Police, spoke while handing over to the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Commissioner of Police, Mr. Wilson Inalegwu, on Monday in Abuja.

However, Governor Amaechi, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. David Iyofor in Port Harcourt, described Mbu as a puppet, who lacks the steel and strength of a lion.

He said: “It is very sad, pathetic and ironic that Mbu called himself a lion. Which lion? This character called Joseph Mbu completely lacks the courage, steel and strength of a lion.

Rather he is a puppet.

“This is a man paid by taxpayers to protect, secure and serve the interests of the people, but, when he was in Rivers State, he spurned the people, trampled on the masses and rather elected to be the partisan servant of one person, in causing disaffection, confusion and crises in Rivers State.

“Mbu shamelessly and corruptly turned himself into a toothless attack dog to fight the government and people of Rivers State.

“How can a man who has no strength of character; a man who willingly submits himself to serve as a puppet call himself a lion? How ironic.

“Mr. Mbu, no lion behaves like that. You are a disgrace and shame to the Nigerian Police Force.”
Governor Amaechi insisted that Mbu epitomises everything that was wrong with the police in Nigeria.

He said Mbu not only disobeyed the Inspector General of Police during his time in Rivers State, but also clearly acted lawlessly, like a man who was above the law and in fact, turned himself into the law.”

He said Mbu can neither tame him nor the people of Rivers State to surrender their constitutionally-guaranteed democratic rights to anyone, no matter how highly placed.

Lekki tollgates should be dismantled permanently: Bode George

Former vice-chairman of PDP SouthWest, Bode George has called for the dismantlement of tollgate at Lekki area of Lagos.

The PDP chieftain made this call at a press conference after soldiers were alleged to have shot and killed peaceful EndSARS protesters on October 20.

 

 

According to George, the dismantling of the tollgates would help in pacifying aggrieved Nigerian youths.

In his words;

“Let me reiterate the irreducible minimum acceptable to placate the angry and restless youths in order to restore peace, fairness and equity in our state.

The two tollgates should be dismantled immediately and permanently. AlphaBeta and Lekki Concession Company should be scrapped. The advert signage monopoly given to Seyi Tinubu should be withdrawn forthwith.

The Iya Oloja title should be withdrawn from Shade Tinubu and be given to the individual who deserves it according to tradition.

The NURTW which has become the militia wing of the APC should be re-organized and removed from the ambit and control of political actors.”
