PDP Warns Motorists Against Amaechi’s Directive On Loud Speakers

By Jerry Needam

The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says it's unlawful and criminal for motorists to mount loud speakers on their vehicles to campaign by singing or any other means aimed at drumming support or sympathy for the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The PDP said it has become imperative to make this public against a directive by Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi to compel all motorists across the State to mount loud speakers on their vehicles with the sole aim of propagating the slogan of the All Progressives Congress, APC, composed into campaign songs.

A statement from the office of the State Chairman of the PDP, Bro Felix Obuah and signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Jerry Needam warned all motorists to shun such coercive and myopic directive, warning that any attempt by any motorist in whatever guise to carry out the instruction will attract unpleasant conseq uences.

The statement made it clear that such undemocratic and provocative act is capable of causing chaos in the State, stressing that any motorist that makes the mistake of carrying out such illegality will have himself to blame.

The PDP, while reassuring all vehicle owners and users of the State roads of protection of their rights and privileges, also advised that they should be alive to the laws of the land and must not allow anybody no matter how highly placed to use them as tools to perpetrate criminal acts etc.

'May we also warn that we cannot allow such brazen breach of the law take root in our land and are ready to use whatever means legally possible to resist and stop any act of executive lawlessness to ensure that there is sanity in Rivers State.

The security agencies should also be at alert to ensure no directive from any quarter capable of causing a breach of the peace and order in the State is permitted,' the PDP stressed.
