Youths of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state on Monday disclosed that they have compiled petitions which they intend to submit to President Muhammadu Buhari during his forthcoming visit to the state.
The youths noted that their complaints if attended to by Buhari would improve the security of the state.
The group also called on the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, not to allow Governor Nyesom Wike to inaugurate the officials of the Neighbourhood Watch Corps, adding that the formation of the security body runs fowl of the law.
The leader of the group, Chimidi Owhorji said: “When the president visits the state, we will officially forward our petitions and complaints about the state to him. We know that when he comes he will take a closer assessment of the security structure in the state and to improve it.
“He loves the people of Rivers State that is why he has brought meaningful projects in the state. So, we are earnestly and anxiously waiting to receive you, Mr. President. Rivers people want to tell you thank you in a big way for appointing their sons and daughters into privileged position in your government.
“They are ready to host you in big ways to tell you how they are being maltreated by the man who is supposed to be the Chief Security Officer of the state.
“We are calling on the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, not to allow the state to inaugurate the Neighbourhood Watch Corps. He should do everything within his constitutional right to ensure that they do not operate.
