[BREAKING NEWS]: FG Declares State of Emergency In Rivers as Gov. Wike Resigns

In what appears to be about the boldest step taken by the Federal Government in tackling the political crisis in Rivers state, President Muhammadu Buhari has on Thursday declared a state of emergency in Rivers state.

In a broadcast from the Security summit in the United States, President Buhari said the growing insecurity in Rivers state compelled him to exercise his powers as enshrined in Section 305 Subsection 1 of the Nigerian Constitution, which empowers him as the chief security officer of the country to declare a state of emergency in any troubled area.

The President said the state of emergency is a necessary step to halt the killings by criminals who have been on rampage since the current government came into power.

Describing the criminal activities as a calculated attempt to undermine the sovereignty and peace of the country, President Buhari said the activities of the Criminals have “prevented the Rivers state government from performing its constitutional responsibilities” and caused fear among Nigerians.

Meanwhile another developing story from the south has it that the governor of Rivers state Bar. Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike have resigned as Governor of the state, following the "state of emergency" declared by the federal government.
