The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticized the Federal Government over the withdrawal of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike’s security detail.

The PDP made its comments via a statement released by its spokesman, Dapo Adeyeye.

The statement reads in part:

“This is not acceptable and if anything happens to the governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike, his family or any of our party member or supporter in Rivers State, Rivers people and indeed all Nigerians should hold Chibuike Amaechi and his party leaders responsible.”

“The constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is very clear on the grounds by which the security of a sitting governor can be withdrawn. This is a big slap on our constitution and must be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians before the APC reverses all the gains of democracy we have nurtured since 1999.”

Meanwhile, the APC has accused Wike of gathering arms to be used during the elections.
