Niger Delta Youth Pass Vote Of Confidence On Rivers CP Effiong, Urge APC To Stop Blackmailing Police Boss

Niger Delta Youth Council of Nigeria (NDYCN) has passed a vote of confidence on Commissioner of Police Rivers State, Okon Effiong for standing up against crime and criminals particularly during the just concluded 2023 general elections across the state.

In a statement signed by the President of the group Comrade Ufuoma Victor Erharhine,
lambasted All Progressives Congress (APC) for trying to blackmail the Police CP, saying the Commissioner only acted professionally and in strict adherence to ethics, rules and regulations of his profession.

While also commending the police boss in Rivers State for being non-partisan and discharging his profession without fear or favour, the statement challenged APC chieftains to prove in concrete terms that Governor Wike had indeed used Effiong in carrying out political persecution in the state, adding that the allegation was nothing but rantings of sour losers in election contest.

“The police commissioner in Rivers State deserves a medal for being highly professional, patriotic and committed to peace, unity and general security of lives and property of citizens wherever he finds himself in the cause of discharging his duties as law officer.

“He has been a stickler to rules and regulations and above all constitutional provisions guiding the Police profession.

“The Rivers State APC discovered that they couldn’t compromise the good cop and use him to achieve their political plan so they resulted to blackmail to damage the hard-earned reputation of the CP.

“We are by this statement proclaiming our confidence in this good cop and unequivocally denying all baseless allegations against the commissioner of police and equally call on police service commission and all concerned stakeholders to advocate for the CP OKon Effiong be given a national award as acknowledgement of his selfless service to country.

“We are calling on the good people of Rivers State to disregard all the lies been melted on the state commissioner of Police, is just to discredit him of carrying out his job professionally,” the statement appealed.
