Traditional rulers in River state have been urged to remain apolitical and silence partisan politics

The charge was given by the state governor Nyesom Wike, today at the 108 and 109 general session of Rivers State Council of Transitional Rulers in Port Harcourt.

He added that getting involved in partisan politics will reduce their social relevance.

He said: “If you don’t respect your stool, you will have challenges. Withdraw yourselves from playing politics. If you don’t withdraw yourselves, I will withdraw you. If you take sides, I will also take sides”.

The governor charged the traditional rulers never to allow any politician to breach the peace in their communities during the forthcoming campaigns.

He said: “We expect the political parties to play by the rules and embark on peaceful and issue-based campaigns. But you must be on the watch out to ensure that no person or entity violates the peace of your communities under the guise of political campaigns”.

“At the end of the campaigns the votes of our people are very important and we expect the INEC to conduct free, fair and credible general elections that will enable our people to freely determine their political direction and destiny. Here again, you also bear individual and collective responsibility to mobilize your subjects to collect their permanent voters cards and vote for the candidates of their choice.”

Governor Wike urged the traditional rulers to lend their voices in condemnation of the alleged neglect of Rivers State by the APC Federal Government.
