Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has condoled with the families who lost their loved ones in the course of the fracas preparatory to the APC congress at the weekend.
Governor Wike said that it is unfortunate that some politicians do not understand that politics is not war.
In a statement on Friday, Governor Wike was quoted as saying: “Politics is not a do or die affair. All politicians must learn to play politics by established rules “.
Governor Wike said that the fracas that claimed innocent lives ahead of the Rivers APC congress underscores what Rivers people have continued to say about the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and their Commander, Mr Akin Fakorede who has been indicted by INEC for election rigging and violence.
He pleaded with APC members to continue to see the state as one, pointing out that it is necessary for everyone to maintain the peace that the state currently enjoys.
The governor warned hoteliers who allow their premises to be used as hideouts for illegal political activities to desist or face appropriate sanctions from the Rivers State Government.
