Amaechi Is Planning To Mobilise His Supporters To Attack Goodluck In Rivers..PDP

Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State has drawn the attention of the police and other security agencies to the continued threat by Governor Rotimi Amaechi to mobilise his supporters against the party, should it insist on holding President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign rally in Amesiemaka Stadium, Igwurita, near Port Harcourt.
A statement signed by Jerry Needam, the special adviser on Media to the state PDP chairman, said: “We no longer takes the threat as ordinary, because Governor Amaechi has sufficiently proved that he has natural hatred for President Jonathan and his family, and is only using party politics as a cover to get at the president.”
The party regretted that rather than issue-based campaigns, Amaechi had continued to cast aspersions on the president everywhere he went on campaigns.
Needam said the governor on Love FM Port Harcourt live programme yesterday threatened fire and brimstone should the PDP go ahead to hold any rally for President Jonathan in the state-owned Amasieamaka Stadium.
The PDP warned Amaechi to note that “there is a difference between him and the state and by extension, the state-owned institutions and should stop acting as though these institutions are his personal property.”
Needam said that the only reason he (Amaechi) had advanced for refusing the PDP the use of the new stadium was that he is the governor and has the right to say no.
“This is outright turning himself to the ‘state’ which is wrong and anti-democratic,” the PDP notes.
“While we do not wish to join issues with Amaechi, we also make bold to say that Amaechi’s threats are a pointer to concluded plans to cause breach of peace and order in the state, and should be invited by the law enforcement agencies for interrogation, and should also be held responsible for any possible crisis before, during and after President Jonathan’s presidential rally in the state,” the PDP warned.
