President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari said he will not “forgive or forget” the evil acts of perpetrators of violence before, during and after the recent governorship elections in Rivers State.

Buhari said this yesterday, when the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) paid him a congratulatory visit in Abuja.

“We will confront them with facts and figures. We will not forgive and we will not forget those who perpetrated killings and arson in Rivers State during the elections. At least this is the much we owe Nigerians,” he said.

He added that his government will not tolerate “an army within the army or a police within the police.”

Also speaking, the former deputy governor of Rivers state, Sir Gabriel Toby, who led the delegation, said what happened during the presidential and the governorship elections was a coup and did not reflect the wishes of the people.

While pledging the support of the people to the incoming administration, Toby added that they were also in Abuja to plead with the President-elect not to forget the persecution and many sacrifices made by their son, Governor Rotimi Amaechi, that culminated into APC’s success, urging Buhari to duly compensate Amaechi.
