A group under the aegis of Egi People Assembly has thrown its weight behind the Rivers State House of Assembly over a press statement issued that the gas eruption which occurred in the area has been contained and relief materials sent to the victims of the gas eruption.
The Public Relations Officer of the group, Mr Ephraim Eke, who spoke to journalists in Omoku, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government area of Rivers State recently said Total E and P has done a thorough job to put issues concerning the gas eruption to rest.
Mr Eke was reacting to a pres statement issued by a group known as the Egi concerned citizens that opposed the statement by the lawmakers, claiming that the gas eruption has not been CONTAINED.
He described the stamen of the Egi concerned citizens as false, baseless and capable of causing acrimony in the area.
According to him, the Egi concern citizens and Egi fans who lived in Diaspora did not have adequate knowledge about the area and cannot speak for the people.
‘This people do not knows anything about the gas eruption. They just come to Egi occasionally and before you know it, they have gone. I think they should have approached the Egi People on ground to know the truth about the gas eruption”, he said.
The image maker of the Egi Peoples Assembly who claimed to be one of the affected persons of the gas eruption however called on the people of Egi to desist from making comments or statements that is capable of causing acrimony and insecurity in the area since the people of Egi ate peace loving and law abiding.
