Politics Nigeria has gotten photographs of a campaign office belonging to the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, sealed by the Rivers State Government.
It can be recalled that the Intra-Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) squabbles that birthed the Integrity group also known as G5 led by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike against Atiku came to a head on Friday when the governor used a court order to seal the building.
According to Wike’s Spokesman, Mr. Kelvin Ebiri, the sealing of the campaign office was in line with the directive of his principal that campaign offices should not be located in residential areas.
Executive Order 22 of the state prohibited siting campaign offices in residential areas and that to ensure the rule of law was followed, the government approached a court which ordered the facility to be sealed for fouling the Executive Order
“The Rivers State Executive Order 22 prohibits the location of a political campaign office in a residential area. It was the court that ordered the place to be sealed up.
“The Rivers State government approached a court which ordered that the place should be sealed up,” Ebiri said.
