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 was kidnapped.

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.
