‘I didn’t call for power shift to Rivers upland’
The President of the Ikwerre Consultative Forum, Mr. Achinike Peter, has denied calling for power shift to upland part of Rivers State.
He was reacting to an interview in the politics section of The Nation yesterday.
The introductory part of the interview created the impression that he was calling for power shift to the upland where power has been for about 16 years.
The body of the interview was, however, clear that the shift he advocated was for power to leave the upland for the riverine.
He said: “To contemplate retaining power among the upland people after 16 uninterrupted years is not only unfair and unjust, but even criminal. Therefore, power must shift to our brothers and sisters in the riverine.”
