amaechi-receives-jonathan-at-ph-A fresh round of confrontation is presently brewing between Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Amaechi, and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state as the governor has refused to give approval to the party to use the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Igwurita-Ali for its upcoming presidential campaign.

The party applied for use of the stadium for its presidential campaign rally on January 28 but the governor refused to grant them the use of the facility on the grounds that it is under construction.

But the PDP has rejected the governor’s reason since his own party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has used the stadium twice for political rallies.

Subsequently, the party warned the governor to rethink his decision or be ready for confrontation.

Speaking at a meeting of political leaders in Rivers State with the state Commissioner of Police, Dan Bature, on Friday evening, the state Chairman of PDP, Felix Obuah, alleged that the governor had refused to approve the party’s application for the use of the stadium.

Decrying the governor’s action, Obuah said, “The facilities of Rivers State are owned by all of us; all tax-paying people. The Adokiye Amiesiemaka Stadium belongs to Rivers people; Rivers State money was used to build it. It was not meant for the Buhari campaign manager; it is not his personal property. They used it for their own rally and their own celebrations.

“We have applied to use the place for our rally, come 28th of this month. But the governor, in his act of impunity, has refused us the use of that place”.

Mr. Obuah threatened that his party would defy the governor and use the facility with or without approval.
