Officials Maintain Silence On Withdrawal Of Soldiers From Rivers State Government House

The Nigerian military authorities and officials of the Rivers State Government are silent on the withdrawal of soldiers from the Government House in Port Harcourt.
There used to be up to 50 military personnel stationed at the Government House, but none of them were seen around during the visit to the place today.
Attempts to get explanations from the spokesman for the two brigade of the Nigerian Army, Major Michael Etete, were unsuccessful as he claimed ignorant about the development.
The Rivers State Commissioner for Information, Ibim Semenitari, was also reluctant to speak on the issue before travelling to Abuja.
However, some lawyers who commented on the development said that the military had no business being at the Government House in the first place. Others said there was more to the withdrawal. 

Meanwhile reactions have continued to trail the crisis in Rivers state with the Trade Union Congress TUC, condemning the Members of the House of Assembly for engaging in fisticuffs.
President General of the TUC, Bobo Ika Igama, and General Secretary, Musa Lawal, in a statement lamented that while Nigerians were yet to recover from the shock of the controversial election of the Nigeria Governors Forum NGF, the state lawmakers openly engaged in a dishonourable show of shame.
TUC leader said once again, the Rivers state lawmakers have proven that politics was a lucrative business in Nigeria that is above their call to service.
