Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr Austin Tam-George, has condemned the governor of Kano State, Alhaji Mohammed Ganduje, for inciting violence in Rivers State, during his speech at the APC campaign rally in Port Harcourt today.

Governor Ganduje had charged APC supporters to resort to violence during the rerun elections in Rivers State on Saturday, saying: "if they shoot you, take cover and shoot them. "

"This is a shameful and egregious invitation to violence by the Kano State governor ", Dr Tam-George said.

The Commissioner called on the Inspector General of Police to immediately remove governor Ganduje from Rivers State, in order to forestall the breakdown of law and order in the state.

Continuing, Dr Tam-George blamed the Minister for Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi for importing thugs and Boko Haram fighters, disguised as APC supporters, to cause mayhem in Rivers State.

The Commissioner urged the people of Rivers State to resist any acts of electoral fraud by the police, INEC and APC before, during and after the elections on Saturday.
