Chief George expressed grave concern over the threat to democracy posed by the current turmoil in Rivers State, warning that any further escalation could have dire consequences for Nigeria’s democratic stability.

He further appealed to all stakeholders, regardless of party affiliation, to prioritize the collective interests of Nigerians and refrain from making provocative statements that could further inflame tensions in Rivers State.
