Stop The Insults on President Jonathan, PDP Tells Amaechi
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Rivers State chapter, says it will no
longer condone the persistent and unwarranted insults and acts that
undermine the person and office of the President of the Federal Republic
of Nigeria by Governor Rotimi Amaechi.
The Party notes with displeasure what it calls daily attacks by the
Governor on President Jonathan on issues that do not deserve such
onslaught, stressing that the extent of insubordination and disrespect
exhibited by Gov Amaechi to the President can no longer be tolerated by
the Party, as he (Amaechi) would not have endured that long before taking
action, including branding anyone who does that against him as cultist and
ensured he is arrested and detained unlawfully.
The PDP also urges Governor Amaechi to rather than using the State's
security votes on frivolous trips, and events, and sponsorship of the
activities of the All Progressives Congress, APC, should utilize the
billions of naira he receives collects monthly in ending the upsurge in
criminality in Rivers State.
The Party recalls that in the past three weeks, several high profile
killings and kidnappings have taken place in Rivers State, immediately CP
Mbu Joseph Mbu was transferred, adding that as three PDP stalwarts
regained their freedom last week (Thursday), another high profile kidnap
occurred on Sunday, as the Site Manager of Rivigo, Engr. Leyira Kamanu, an
indigene of Kpean Community in Khana Local Government Area of the State
The PDP demands that it's high time Governor Amaechi settled down in the
State, and use the State huge financial resources judiciously, including
tackling the spate of crimes and violence in the State.
The PDP also calls for the unconditional release of Engr. Leyira Kamanu,
and appeals to youths in the State to desist from engaging themselves in
acts of violence and criminality.
