Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has urged actors in the Rives State crisis to tread with caution in their conduct to avoid endangering and derailing our democratic journey.
Atiku described the escalating situation in Rivers state as unhelpful, and advised that leaders of whatever hue be given the respect they deserve wherever they go. He reminded politicians to be mindful of our political history in all that they do.
He said he is still vividly reminded of the chain of political crises that had disrupted democracy in the past.
According to him, politicians should not push their luck too far by placing impunity above the constitution for selfish gains.
The former Vice President noted that this kind of political rascality should not be tolerated at the expense of governance and service delivery issues crying for attention.
