Rivers crisis: Tinubu won’t fold hands and watch – Presidency


The Presidency has said that there was no way President Bola
Tinubu would keep quiet and allow crises in the states to escalate.


This is following his intervention in the political crises
in Ondo and Rivers State.


Observers had claimed Tinubu’s actions were undermining the
government of such states.


But his media adviser, Ajuri Ngelale believes it was a move
in the right direction.


Ngelale said Tinubu will continue to intervene in states
battling political crises if such development will affect the country.


“That has nothing to do with, of course, political
development, destabilization of a particular region or state or subnational
entity that could potentially turn into a national conflagration,” he said on
Channels Television’s News Night, a pre-recorded show that airs on Mondays.


“If the President sees that, he is not going to sit by as
the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and fold his hands and keep quiet. I
think that is what he has done.


“That is to say if you are the Commander-in-Chief of the
Armed Forces and your primary objective is to make sure that the Nigerian
people are safe; that they are able to operate in an environment that is stable
and does not place them in any form of insecurity, then you know that if a
political crisis is devolving into something that is generating manmade
insecurity, then the president needs to step in and he took that wise decision
to step in,” the presidential aide maintained.
