Rivers Crisis Bad For Business, Distracts Real Governance & Development In Rivers State

Dr Membere – Otaji

Nigeria’s Frontline business leader, Chief Dr Emi Membere- Otaji DSSRS, OON has joined other concerned leaders not only from Rivers State but Nigeria at large in calling all parties involved in the states recent political squabbles to sheath their swords.

In a press statement made available to press by his Media Aide, Anderson Hart

Dr Membere- Otaji noted that in recent months most of the negative political news in the country have come from Rivers state which to him is not only bad for business but also distracts real governance and development in the state.

Hear Him: “It deeply pains me that my state is daily being dragged into the mud.”

This call according to the release has become necessary as Dr Membere- Otaji is presently the highest member of the Organised Private Sector (OPSN), not only in Rivers state but the entire South South of Nigeria, vis-a-vis his position as the Deputy National President and second in line for National Presidency of the Nigerian Chamber of Commerce NACCIMA, and stressed, “I must state the obvious that enough should be enough!.”

Chief Dr Emi Membere-Otaji who was Chairman of the West African Glass Plc. and also a Council member of both the Nigerian Chamber of Shipping and Nigerian Institute of Management, further observed that the political heat is not only affecting the state but the nation in general as Rivers state is not only the headquarters of the nation’s energy source but also its major source of income.

He pointed out that in these days where online news and publications are read globally in real time, such negative actions in any part of the country can bring disrepute to the nation in the international community, and also distraction to Mr President in his bid to reposition the country at this time.

He calls for positive synergy between the executive, judiciary and legislature to deepen democracy and governance in the state.

Hear Him: “Finally I must conclude with the Shakespearian quote often used as words of wisdom by the late sage, a prominent fighter for an independent Nigeria and its first President, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe that “…. The world is a stage where every actor plays his or her part and exit the stage for the next.”

My fellow Rivers people in all we do, let’s put Rivers State first”
