“Don’t Take Sides” – APC Chieftain Warns Tinubu Amid Political Tensions In Rivers And Ondo States


A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Yekini Nabena, has warned President Bola Tinubu against taking sides in political crises in Rivers and Ondo states.

The former Deputy National Publicity Secretary issued the warning via a statement on Wednesday.

According to Nabena, the President and the ruling APC must respect the Constitution regarding political developments in the two states.

He cautioned that the President, as a father of the nation, must not play politics in Ondo politics.

Nabena said, “President Bola Tinubu must not play politics with the two states. He must show that he is a democrat and not a dictator.

“President Tinubu who believes in the political or social equality of all people and practice the principle of equality of rights must not play politics with River and Ondo states.

“The Constitution of our nation must be recognised and respected at this time in Rivers and Ondo states.

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) should also look into the party Constitution carefully, bearing in mind that the National Working Committee of our party does not have powers to dissolve an elected chairman and his executive in Rivers.

“We are democrats and not dictators in APC, so we should be mindful of our actions. The implications of this action in River State might be dangerous for our party in the near future if the right thing is not done quickly now. If not, what happened before in 2019 will happen again with litigations here and there.”
