Hence placing Governors Amechi’s life in a cliff-hanger of thoroughly compromised Commissioner of Police”Osita Okechukwu ,CNPP’s spokesman said .

Specifically,CNPP cautioned  the president thus,“Mr President, no matter what your cronies might tell you, CNPP is of the candid view that it is in your enlightened self-interest to call for a truce in the kitchen-battle; otherwise you will be the greatest loser at the end of the day.

“In sum, the Nigerian State cannot be hurt badly, especially when two notorious factors – religion and ethnicity are absent in the kitchen-battle” CNPP said.

“CNPP need not remind President Jonathan that as C-in-C of the Armed Forces of Nigeria that either by commission or omission he is culpable in the event of more things untoward.

“President Jonathan should note that his legacy of a democrat and respecter of rule of law is daily being eroded by a kitchen-battle which his cronies altercation with Amechi has unfortunately degenerated to.

Okechukwu also saluted “ the Speaker and Honourable Members of the House of Representatives for their uncommon resolve, and patriotic stand on the Rivers State turmoil. For the Senate the Mighty had fallen.
