  • From Kenechukwu Obiajuru, Yenagoa

A frontline mass mobilization organisation in the Niger Delta, the Movement for the Survival of Izon Ethnic Nationality in the Niger Delta Region, MOSIEND has called on the political class, elders and youths to jettison their political differences sheath their sword and rally round Siminialayi Fubara for the development of the state.

MOSIEND also called on the political gladiators not to divide the people based on selfish and primordial interest but throw their weight behind Governor Siminialayi Fubara for the needed peace and development to thrive.

National President, of MOSIEND, Comrade Kennedy Tonjo West who made the call in an interview with newsmen in Port Harcourt appealed to the elders and youths to show solidarity with the Governor so that the socio economic transformation of the state can be realized.


Comrade West noted that political differences if any between the Governor and the legislature should be for a better understanding and growth in the effective governance of the people

“Yes the crisis will make them understand themselves better and grow stronger politically and chart a positive course to developing the state and the region at large”

He frowned at the burning of some sections of the Rivers State House of Assembly RSHA by some supporters of either side of the contending groups, calling on aggrieved parties to imbibe the attitude of tolerance, forgiveness and remember that they are in one team to transform Rivers state and Niger Delta for the good of all.

“We condemned the destruction of any public property situated anywhere in the state and the recent burning of the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex RSHA by whoever the politicians hired to perpetuate this dastardly act. The complex and every other public property is built by tax payers and they do not belong the individuals they are fighting for or against.

“To rebuild the complex, it will take huge sums of money from the tax payers money which could have been channeled to other areas of development in the state ”

“Let the tenets of separation of power be respected by all, because that is the spirit of democracy”

The National President further admonished Rivers youths to shun violence and desist from being used by politician to foment troubles but chart a positive course to enhance peace and unity in the State.

“The interest of the state is paramount and should override any individual pecuniary gains. The parties should not allow crises merchants to cash-in into the situation and escalate,” he added.
