Amaechi bars Jonathan from using State’s stadium for campaign rally

Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers state has refused letting
PDP use the state owned Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium,
Igwurita-Ali for its presidential campaign slated for January
According to Thisday, PDP had written to the state
government seeking permission to use the stadium for its
presidential campaign but in its response, the government said
the party could not use it as it was under construction, a
position faulted by the PDP.
According to PDP, the APC had used that same stadium twice
recently. Speaking on the matter, the state Chairman of PDP,
Felix Obuah, said the stadium was built with Tax payers money
and so should be available for use to everyone.
“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.”.
The Chairman warned that if the decision of Governor Amaechi
is not rescinded, they would use the stadium with or without
any approval.
