The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, has assured that the federal government will ensure peace in Rivers State.
The Information Minister stated this in a chat with the press after briefing on the outcomes of the Federal Executive Council at the presidential villa in Abuja.
Idris stressed that the federal government is keen to ensure peace and tranquilly in every part of the country, including Rivers, according to Nigerian Tribune.
“Well, the federal government is always interested in the well-being of all the states, and in that direction, the federal government will always align with everyone in Nigeria to make sure that there is peace and tranquilly in all parts of this country.
“But you know that what has happened in Rivers is not a creation of the federal government. It is a political problem that is brewing in the state.
“Of course, the government will ensure that there is peace and stability for all Nigerians, including River State, but you can’t say that this is a creation of the federal government. The federal government never had any hand in creating that problem,” he assured
